Religious Scouting Club

Have you ever heard of a religious scouting club?

Probably many of us have heard of scouting clubs such as boy scouts, girl scouts and cub scouts. But would you believe that there is a religious scouting club?

The Pathfinder Club is a religously oriented scouting club that belongs of a christian denomination. This club has grown to be a worldwide group not just in the US but including in Asia, Middle East, Europe, Africa, Australia, and the North and South America.

In the US alone, this club is under the supervision of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. However in some countries, this club is under a denominational school. Its memberships include both boys and girls aging from 10 years old to 16 years old.

Most of their activities are almost similar to boy scouting, girl scouting, and cub scouting, except that the club is religiously oriented and their activities are Christ centered. So this club also teaches their children to do knot tying, stars and constellations, camping, orientering and a lot more. But these kids are also trained to participate in church activites and community service.

The children have also been taught to learn of Biblical teachings as part of character building and to be good citizens of the society.

This organization had their worldwide camporee in August 2004 which was held in Oshkosh, Wisonsin, USA. This camporee, sponsored by the North American Division Pathfinders Club had been attended by many clubs from the different parts of the world.

What is fascinating is that membership is open to all children who are interested. An example of a local club is the CFC Pathfinder club which located in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
