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 Excellence Award 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, and a Ribbon Medal to be worn on the Uniform for the following year. For every consecutive year the Excellence Award is earned, a star is added to the Ribbon Medal, and it is worn for one more year.

A “Pathfinder of the Year” trophy will be awarded to the one Pathfinder with the most points for that year.
Redding Pathfinders, together with other local Pathfinder clubs, will attend an awards trip to places such as Six Flags in Vallejo, CA. Pathfinders who have earned 80% of available points by the closing of the Pathfinder Year at the Investiture Ceremony held in May, will be named eligible for this awards trip.
