Want to join our Pathfinders & Adventures Club

The Greenville South Carolina Pathfinder Club 

We meet most Wednesdays from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm in the Family Life Center at 1704 East North Street in Greenville SC. Anyone is welcome to come by and check out a meeting. Our meetings begin with Pledges and Law reciting followed with a devotional and song. We then take a few minutes to complete that week’s class work before we fall in for marching and drilling. After a few minutes, we begin or complete work on an honor. An honor can be anything from model rocket building to studying about spiders. We then meet together at attention to receive announcements and to learn about forthcoming events. We also perform community service activities such as food collection for the needy, visitation at nursing homes and helping someone that is in need. We go on camping trips, march in parades, go snow skiing, go hiking and to camporees. We strive to have fun learning about God’s world and learning things that we will need to be happy and successful in life. We work with parents and teachers to coordinate our activities whenever possible. As leaders, we believe that our Pathfinder’s are very important. We appreciate your trust and help as we teach them to love the Lord and others.
