NNSW Pathfinders

Pathfinders is a church-centred, spiritual-recreational program for young people 10 to 16 years of age.
It is filled with action, adventure and challenge. It allows children to develop new attitudes and skills.
These are skills that will produce personal growth, team spirit and a sense of loyalty, and respect for
God, His creation and His church.

The whole philosophy of Pathfindering is built on the premise that children learn best by example
rather than commands. As they see leader and parents model spiritual and social values, they too
will aspire to develop high moral principles, loving and caring attitudes, and determination to excel
in all their various pursuits.

Foremost, the ideals and objectives of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are taught through an
active learning program, which appeals to the learning style of this age group.


This year our base camp will be on the within the boundaries of Elim Heights Youth Camp owned by the
Seventh Day Reform Church on the south end of the Putty Road. The Reform SDA church will also be
camping on the property on the same weekend in the cabins area. The Elim Camp managers have been
very helpful in preparing this Expedition weekend.
The 2019 North NSW Southern Expedition will be a point to point course with varying degrees of difficulty.
The cost will be $35 / person (pathfinders & adults).
Water will be available at the Base Camp. Clubs will need to bring their own water containers labelled well
so that we can return the containers to the relevant clubs.
