About Us

Fall Skills Camporee 2013.1

We are the Downers Grove Detectives Pathfinder Club. Our Pathfinder club is part of a worldwide organization of young people, sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, though young people of any religious persuasion, or none at all, are welcome and encouraged to join. The Pathfinder club program is designed for boys and girls, grades 5 – 10, with Teen Leadership Grades 11 + . Through this program we offer a Christ centered focus while we participate in recreation, activities that promote team spirit, responsible citizenship, concern for the environment and loyalty to God.

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. We also encourage the development of life, and leadership skills, including the challenge of learning through meaningful science, arts, and hobbies. Every year, those interested within our club may also have the opportunity to participate in Bible Experience Competitions.
