Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
— 1 Timothy 4:12, NIV
Pathfinders is a worldwide organization similar to boy or girl scouts. Activities include camping, community service, and various forms of interactive training in a variety of recreational, artistic, nature, conservation, vocational, and outreach areas. Pathfinders is for 5th – 8th graders, and there is a Teen Leadership Training (TLT) program for high school students (grades 9-12).
Clubs are organized at the local church level, but there are periodic conference, union and International gatherings called camporees. Nearly 50,000 gathered at the 2014 International Camporee in Osh Kosh, Wisconsin.
