Pathfinders and Adventurers

Carleton Place Sparrows 


Director: Lory Chamberlain -



The Adventurer program was created to assist parents in their important responsibilities as a child’s primary teachers. The program aims to strengthen the parent/child relationship and to further the child’s development in spiritual, physical, mental, and social areas. 

The adventurer club involves children from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 4 and their parents.


The Adventurer Club provides fun and creative ways for children...


  • to develop a Christ-like character
  • to experience the joy and satisfaction of doing things well
  • to express their love for Jesus in a natural way
  • to learn good sportsmanship and strengthen their ability to get along with others
  • to discover their God-given abilities and to know how to use them to benefit self and serve others
  • to improve their understanding of what makes families strong.







Pathfinders conjure up images of marching, camping, curious hobbies and encounters with God’s creation in Nature. It is a church-centered, spiritual-recreational activity with an appeal for youth who are at the fast-growing physical stage of development.  ‘Service to God and to humanity’ in a nutshell is the dual purpose of Pathfindering

The pathfinder club involves youth from Grade 5 and up.


Pathfinders offer a wide range of activities including, but not limited to:


  • Camping & camping/survival skills
  • Grade appropriate leadership training
  • Activities promoting community pride & involvement through outreach activities
  • Interactive training in a variety of recreational, artistic, nature, conservation, vocational, and outreach areas, with awards (honors) given for successful completion of the interactive training modules
