Pathfinders are a worldwide organization of young people sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, though young people of any religious persuasion, or none at all, are welcome and encouraged to join the organization.



Pathfinders offer a wide range of activities including, but not limited to:

  • Camping & camping/survival skills

  • Grade-appropriate leadership training

  • Activities promoting community pride & involvement through outreach activities such as helping in downtown soup kitchens, collecting food for the disadvantaged, cleaning & maintaining city and county parks, visiting and encouraging the elderly, and MANY more

  • Interactive training in a variety of recreational, artistic, nature, conservation, vocational, and outreach areas, with awards (honors) given for successful completion of the interactive training modules

  • Personal care and encouragement by a caring staff member! While many school classrooms have 10-30 students per teacher, Pathfinders offers AT LEAST 1 staff member to every 5 Pathfinder ratio!



Pathfinders are for students age 10+ who are enrolled in grades 5-12. 5th and 6th graders are often called “Junior” Pathfinders, and 7th through 12th graders are called “Teen” Pathfinders.

If you’re interested in registering, please call the club director, Kirsten Elliot or Church Secretary.

Teen Leadership Training


The Teen Leadership Training (TLT) program works closely with the Pathfinder program and is for high school students (grades 9-12).

Staff Positions

Staff positions in many locations allow adults to make a difference for young people, develop friendships with fellow staff, learn more about God’s creation, and improve their training skills.
