Downers Grove

With it's beginnings dated in the late 1920's, Pathfinder clubs are now an integral part of Seventh-day Adventist churches world wide. Designed to educate and equip youth with skills and knowledge of the world around them. Camping, hiking and interacting with nature are some of the things children can expect from their Pathfinder club. Many activities also emphasize Biblical principles and encourage Bible study and understanding.

Adventurer Awards

We enjoy participating in many social group activities, such as Camping, Skiing, Rock-climbing, to name a few, as well as Community Service, and Bible Study. As children develop skills, they can track their learning with honors. With over 200+ honors available, below is a sample of a few.
