Points System

Most activities in the Pathfinder Club will be awarded points toward prizes, trophies, and special trips.

There will be two special gifts at the Christmas Party for the two Pathfinders with the highest points up to that date; one for ages 10-12, and one for ages 13 and above.

The Pathfinder Excellence Award is awarded at the end of the Club year to Pathfinders who have demonstrated outstanding commitment, leadership, and growth. This Pathfinder of the Year will be awarded to two Pathfinders; one ages 10-12, and one ages 13 and above. This Award is based largely on points earned. The Award consists of an Honor Certificate, a Medal to be worn on the Uniform, and a Pathfinder of the Year Trophy.
