Pathfinders
.
 
For those who are familiar with it, “Pathfindering” produces images of marching, camping, stimulating hobbies, bugs, and bats. Enlarging their windows on the world and building a relationship with God are the dual objectives of this club, designed for children ages 10-15. With nearly 2 million members around the world, this Seventh-day Adventist Church-sponsored organization accepts any youth who promises to abide by the Pathfinder Pledge and Law regardless of their church affiliation.
 
Leadership
The volunteer leadership, skilled in a myriad of unusual abilities and interests are, first and foremost, strong believers in Jesus Christ and are sure of the road they are taking towards eternal life. They consider the Pathfinder club an experimental laboratory where growth and learning are synonymous with fun. Failure is not expected, but rather all activity becomes a tool for learning.  
Activities
The imagination of its leadership and members are the primary limiting factors of a club's abilities. Activities encouraged range from community/civic service projects in their community and across the globe to nature and environmental conservation studies to camping and high adventure trips. Pathfindering challenges the unique talents of each member. Pathfindering is built on an age-specific curriculum of six levels along with approximately 350 specialized skill development topics covering arts and crafts, aquatics, nature, household arts, recreation, spiritual development, health, and vocational training. These often serve as a launching point for lifetime careers or hobbies.
