Pathfinder trips are designed for high school age campers who have little or no experience. These trips offer a sampling of activities so campers can “try out” many different moderate level adventures to find which ones they like best. Campers step out of their comfort zones, try new things, gain confidence, and learn about themselves in the process.

The idea behind this is that campers may not know what they like to do and they can try many adventure activities in order to figure out which ones are best fit for them. While there are many activities in each trip there is at least one activity that is meant to be the highlight of the trip. This allows campers to lean toward something they may be interested in while also stepping out of their comfort zone a little and trying something new.
