The College Church Catamounts

MEMBERSHIP CRITERIA

Pathfinders is a worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Christian camping organization, and the College Church Catamounts club is open to all young people in grades 3–12, whether they are members of our church or not. So invite your friends!

  • Note on third-graders: Although they can join the club and attend the meetings, they can't go on campouts until they complete the third grade or unless they have a parent/legal guardian who is a club staff member and accompanies them on the campout.

THE pathfinder year

Our Pathfinder year has changed! Instead of following the school year, our College Church Catamounts will meet from March to November. This will give us much better camping weather and allow us to take advantage of excellent camping areas that are only open during the summer.

COST

Your registration, club T-shirt, and most of the activities will be FREE! We will, however, need to charge for campouts and a few of the more expensive activities.

MEETINGS

Our club typically holds 1–2 meetings per month, and most are on Sabbath afternoons. Please watch the church bulletin and calendar for further info, and you can also see the Pathfinder calendar at the bottom of this web page.

CAMPOUTS

We will have some great campouts this year, including Lake Dennison, Burlingame State Park in Rhode Island, a teen canoeing adventure, and a challenging backpacking trip.

FUN ACTIVITIES

Get ready for a fun summer! We plan to hike up Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire, explore bike trails, go sledding (weather permitting), splash and slide around at the Great Wolf Lodge Indoor Water Park, brave the rapids while white water rafting, and much more!

Find Your Strength!

SERVE AND LEARN ABOUT JESUS

This year’s theme is “Find Your Strength!” We will learn more about Jesus at our meeting devotionals, campout worships, activities, honors, and by participating in the Pathfinder Bible Experience. We will serve Jesus by ministering to our community through nursing home/hospital visitation and being heavily involved in the Greater Lancaster Holiday Food Drive.
