Pathfinders Program 2015

The Pathfinder program (Evolution and Change!) originated about 6 years ago as a two week leadership camp offered in the AUG B session for 16 year old campers….. It has evolved to much more.

It is available to 15 and 16 year old campers who are looking for a more challenging experience and who want to develop their leadership skills.

2015 Session Themes

After pondering over the many fabulous ideas contributed from staff and campers, the session themes have been finalized. Drum roll please. They are (it’s going to be such fun): JUL A         Everything Elvis JUL B         We’re going to the movies. AUG A       In the Jungle (the Mighty Jungle) AUG B       The Rooten Tooten Wild West The session themes provide fun and creative backdrops for many of the programs throughout the session. Some of our most memorable events have been created from “idea brainstorms” during staff pre-camp training or even hours before launch. If possible, have your campers bring a costume that connects (even remotely) with the theme.
