Pathfinder Outdoor Education’s mission is to provide experiential education programs for learners of all ages in a supportive environment, which serve as a catalyst for increased social and personal responsibility.
Research and our own experience make it clear that overnight programs away from the familiar environment of home and school have a direct and profound affect on youth, and that is the mainstay of our programming. However, we also have a wide variety of outreach programs, firmly believing that all children deserve positive developmental programs such as ours. To that end, we’ve modified our core curriculum for almost any setting, and provide training for educators so they can implement challenge activities in their schools and classrooms. Activities that build skills in communication, conflict resolution, appreciating diversity, and building community may be what our world needs more than anything right now.
