Whether it's low ropes, high ropes, tree climbing or canoeing, Pathfinder's youth programs are designed to increase co-operation and team work.

Engage Challenge Transform - it's what we do. We base all our facilitation on Experiential Education principles.

Get outside and unplugged! Join us the first Saturday of every month at our Open Tree Climb.

Founded in 1993, Pathfinder Outdoor Education is a non-profit organization dedicated to building personal, social and environmental responsibility through the power of shared experience. We offer experiential educational programs that develop leadership, increase self-confidence, and enhance communication through trust and team building activities. Canoeing, high ropes, and outdoor living skills are just a few of the fun, outdoor activities participants can do, working together to gain new skills in problem-solving, resolving conflict, listening, observing, and working effectively in a group.


 
 

 

We are so grateful for our amazing Hootenanny sponsors!
And…thank you to all the donors who generously shared food, beverages, silent auction items, and more with us. Thank you to all the volunteers who worked tirelessly before, during, and after to set up and take down the Hoot. Thank you to everyone who came and helped grow our scholarship fund.

 

 

Celebrating 25 years of engaging, challenging, and transforming our community

Recent Comments from Teachers:

“(Pathfinder) was truly a great experience for everyone. The students, chaperones, and teachers were WOW'd by the learning, sharing and depth of expertise exhibited from the facilitators. The activities provided outstanding opportunities for everyone to challenge themselves which supported the overall theme and goals. You will definitely hear from us when we begin looking at next year's field trips for the school year 19-20.”

"I have been a part of numerous youth group activities and this was by far the most enjoyable and relevant program I've seen. The four facilitators ran the program seamlessly. They engaged perfectly with the kids and redirected them whenever needed. I will definitely be recommending the school's 8th grade attend from now on."
