Pathfinder Details

Learn To Lead

Pathfinder Camp is the first step in the Grace Adventures leadership program. Through this incredible week devoted to gaining leadership skills, growing as a team, and discovering what it means to serve, your child will be grown as a leader while exploring who God made them to be. A week at Pathfinder Camp also brings all the fun that Grace Adventures has to offer; tubing, laser tag, high ropes, and so much more!

After completing a week of Pathfinder Camp, campers can return during the summer to join the Tim Team. Tim Team members will work together as a group to help camp run everyday by providing assistance during meal times, running large group games, learning how to safely implement high adventure activities, and participate in chapel times.  During the week, our High School leadership staff will guide Tim Team members, building up the group and providing Bible study and personal spiritual development time. There is also lots of fun! Games, high adventure activities, and special Tim Team group outings are all part of a week serving on Tim Team.

Activities Include
Target Sports, High Adventure Activities, Tubing, Ga-Ga Ball, Campfires, Sand Dunes, Healthy Relationships, Evening Worship Sessions

Safety is our #1 priority for your child while at Summer Camp!

We know that we can only be effective at building relationships and ministering to campers when they feel safe, valued, and cared for.
