Pathfinder Is A Camp Schedule For Girls Entering Grades 9 – 11 Who Are Not Enrolled in CILT.

9th Grade Girls May Also Join A Traditional Session.

Introducing the Exciting New Pathfinder Schedule for Teens!

We’re excited to bring a special weekly schedule to our campers entering 9th – 11th grade that is designed to be a fun and challenging discipleship week for our campers who are not enrolled in CILT. This week will blend the traditional Mt. Gilead experience they have come to love and some new memorable adventures tailored to their older ages.

A Unique Camp Experience:

During their week, high school grade girls will stay together in a cabin, similar to the EQ or CILT programs. However, they’ll also get to participate in nightly camp activities, enjoy campfires, and engage in exciting late-night adventures.

Each day, the cabin will choose from a diverse array of camp activities, including riflery, archery, ceramics, high ropes, low ropes, canoeing, hiking, camping, and crafts. They’ll have the freedom to enjoy these activities when our younger campers are not using them.

Off-Site Excursions & Diverse Camp Activities:

We take our Pathfinder Week campers on off-site adventures, such as whitewater rafting and hiking at the beautiful Ricketts Glenn State Park. They’ll also dedicate a day to service at a local ministry, contributing to a meaningful cause in our community.

Our camp week is filled with a variety of new and traditional activities. With an escape room challenge, a woodland scavenger hunt to put their orienteering skills to the test, and sessions in crafts, riflery, archery, swimming, canoeing, and engaging campfire messages that are both thought-provoking and inspiring.

This week is all about blending the cherished Mt. Gilead experience with new adventures designed especially for our older campers. It’s an opportunity for growth, fun, and making memories that will last a lifetime.

In Hammock Haven, girls can relax away from the camp buzz, engage in deeper conversations guided by their amazing counselor, and explore faith and life issues relevant to their teenage years.

Our goal is to impart important life lessons rooted in a Biblical worldview. We want to teach the value of prayer, studying God’s Word, and spending time in it daily. We’ve named this program “Pathfinders” because, like many teens and young adults, they’re on a journey to discover who they are and where they fit in this world.

We believe in the power of faith, prayer, and the transformative journey of submitting to the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Our camp aims to kickstart these conversations and equip our teens with practical faith-building tools.

Horse Week:

For those who love horseback riding, we have an exclusive Pathfinder Horse Week with the same thrilling off-site adventures, plus nightly riding sessions.

Join Us on the Path:

While a week at camp can’t accomplish everything, it’s a meaningful start. We hope to create a safe, nurturing space for our campers to explore their faith, build relationships, and simply enjoy being kids.

Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds us to trust in the Lord and submit to His guidance, and we believe this experience will help make your path straight.

We’re excited to have your teen daughters join us on this extraordinary journey. For more information or to reserve a spot for the Pathfinder Week, please reach out to us.
