Mt Lassen Climb

Redding Pathfinders, together with the Redding SDA Church and a few other Pathfinder Clubs, will be climbing Mt Lassen this Saturday, Sept,17.

I will be at the Palo Cedro SDA Church parking lot at 1pm. I have 2 or 3 seats available. Then to the summit parking lot by 2pm.  I will begin climbing at 3pm. Vespers at the summit between 6 and 7pm. I hope to be back to the PC Church parking lot no later than 9:30pm

This climb is worth 10 Pathfinder Points.
All first-time Pathfinder climbers will get a Summit Patch. Repeat climbers get a star for their Patch.
Hope to see you there.   🙂


This Wednesday, Sept 14 is Registration Day to join the Redding Rangers Pathfinder Club. Registration is from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Redding SDA Church. A registration form must be filled out for each child. Staff positions are open if you want an active part in your child’s and their friend’s Leadership, Skills, and Spiritual training in the Club. If you wish to help the Club on a part time basis, please let me know. All help is gratefully accepted.
There will be a Staff Training Program this year.

Registration Fees are $45 per child for the year. Please note if your child is missing any part of their Pathfinder Uniform so we can get those pieces ordered.

We are using a points system this year; with a Trophy for Pathfinder Of The Year for highest points earned, and a summer trip to Six Flags for all Pathfinders that earn 80% or more of available points.
Points are awarded for attendance, uniform, dues of $0.25 for each meeting, club participation, behavior, church service participation, outreach participation, and special high-point challenges.

We are going to have a tremendous year and create great memories together.
I thank you for your support.
Miguel Chambers,

Chuck Wagon
