The club name was inspired by God’s creation. God created a star called Sirius which is said to be the brightest star in the night. It’s said to be 22 times more luminous than the Sun.
We are a club that aspire to let our light shine so bright to bring hope and comfort to those around us. Our club focuses on teaching our youth about the following: Who God is, How to be good stewards, How to use their God given talents, Spiritual Growth, Leadership, Friendship & Teamwork, Outdoor Leisure, Arts & Crafts, Camping Skills, Community Service, Physical Challenge, and Winter Survival.

The Pathfinder Aim

The Advent Message to All the World in My Generation

 

The Pathfinder Pledge

By the grace of God
I will be pure, kind and true.
I will keep the Pathfinder law.
I will be a servant of God and a friend to man

 

The Pathfinder Motto

The Love of Christ Compels Me

 

The Pathfinder Law
The Pathfinder Law is for me to
Keep the Morning Watch
Do my honest part
Care for my body
Keep a level eye
Be courteous and obedient
Walk softly in the sanctuary
Keep a song in my heart
Go on God’s errands

The Pathfinder Song:

Oh, we are the Pathfinders strong,
The servants of God are we.
Faithful as we march along,
In kindness, truth, and purity

A truth that will set us free!

For you, and me!
