Are you in a pickle? When was the last time you had to choose between being selfish, and sharing with others? We all face it everyday, so why not have fun while learning how to put God first by coming to Pathfinders camp this year. You will get the opportunity to have fun in all of our fun activities created for kids your age: swimming, climbing wall, funyaks, mini-golf, crafts and more! (Horseback riding is also available for an additional fee.)
What to Expect
For kids in 3rd and 4th grades, the full week of Pathfinders camp is a big step up from the Trailblazers’ mini-week (see Trailblazers). With activities and challenging games, Pathfinders is designed to help kids grow both spiritually and physically. Counselors and coordinators are trained to provide kids with expert guidance and encouragement throughout the week. Remember to bring a water bottle (32oz/1 liter recommended). Your body needs more water at this elevation so make sure you stay hydrated! Although the weeklong camp may seem long to young campers, Pathfinders is full of fun game and spiritual growth.
Pathfinders will stay in Golden Bell’s lodge or cabins at Ponderosa or High Chaparral. All rooms are furnished with bunk beds and limited shelving for personal items. Pack warm pajamas and sleeping bag because nights can get cold at high elevation. Bath-houses are easily accessible to all cabins and include showers for camper convenience. Meals are served in the lodge by kitchen staff.
Morning devotions will be led by counselors or coordinators and include upbeat songs with lots of motions. After kids get moving, camp leaders will deliver the day’s message. Age-appropriate themes are designed to deepen kids’ relationships with God. In addition to morning chapel times, kids will experience an evening speaker who will deliver a short message after dinner. Counselors are always available to talk to kids one-on-one and answer spiritual questions. They will also lead nightly devotions when kids head to bed.
Group and team activities are planned to reinforce the spiritual themes introduced in chapel. Outdoor games channel kids’ energy to ball games, water games, optional horseback riding, and much more! In addition, kids will get to try camp elements like the indoor rock wall and swimming pool. Excursions to the “Snack Shack” allow kids to purchase a variety of cool drinks, candy, ice cream, crackers and chips. On Friday, all campers will have an opportunity to shop in the camp gift shop. (The recommended spending amount for Snack Shack and Gift Shop is $20.)
