Pathfinders is a Seventh-day Adventist Church sponsored activity for children and teens. It began almost 100 years ago and has grown to such proportions worldwide that when they hold the International Camporee, thousands of Pathfinders join together for the week long event. The mission statement of the event held in 2014 in Oshkosh, WI was: to claim, reclaim & retain youth for Christ and His Church. Our events are the implementation and practice of youth evangelism.
In the Kelowna area, the Silver Tip Pathfinder Club has been restarted on September 17, 2014. This year there are a dozen children ages 9-16 years participating locally with a number of staff and supporters to guide them. Meetings are Thursday evenings from 6 - 8pm at the Pathfinder Building on Hollywood Road in Rutland. It adjoins the Okanagan Christian School (OCS). Contact Kelly Philip, Director, at (250) 863-0265 for further information.
Many events are planned for the coming year such as the first Campout in October and a bottle drive.
