Pathfinder Adventurer Club
The Pathfinder Club, being a church-centered recreational-spiritual program, has been designed for children from grades 5 to 10 (ages 10 to 15 years old) and offers action, adventure, group activities, and challenge that produce team spirit and teach valuable life skills. This program is a support program to the Bible subject. It is established for the benefit of the students to be prepared for real life challenges.
The club provides a key step in its educational program-an opportunity to take children out from a classroom setting into outdoor adventures as well.
The highlight of the year for the Pathfinders’ activity is always a three days-long camping trip. The camping trip will give the Pathfinders the opportunities to camp in tents, to conquer challenging obstacle courses, and even cooking their own food over fires.
RAIS has started its Adventurer Club in the school year 2010-2011. The Pathfinder program is starting from the Friend Class up to Ranger Class only. We are looking forward to complete the whole level of the Pathfinder Progressive Classes and to start a Masterguide Club in the near future.
