  • Awareness of the satisfaction of serving others and understanding the opportunities of community needs.
  • Encouraging a good healthy lifestyle that says no to any drugs or any other harmful substances.

The "WAY TO GO" Program

This is the latest Pathfinder curriculum and is based on the concept of activity based learning theory, that the best learning is in the debriefing of the activity that the Pathfinders have just gone through. The program has its own unique language explaining each of the features but the Pathfinders are still invested for each badge according to their age group. The learning takes place in the process of debriefing and journaling that happens after each activity.

Our Mission Statement

  • That children have the opportunity to develop a relationship with God and experience personal growth and wilderness opportunities in a supported environment.
