Pathfinder Outdoor Education
students in Grades Six, Seven, and Eight travel to Brandon, Florida
to participate in this unique experiential bonding experience. Pathfinder,
Inc. is a non-profit organization that helps youth create a more
positive and fully engaged learning community.
Pathfinder programs are grounded in a tradition of experiential
education. All programs, regardless of the age or ability of the
participant, the length of time or location of the program, are
hands-on, interactive and fun with a solid, non-competitive curriculum.
All activities are embedded with the themes of developing character
and community and most programs take place outdoors.
Pathfinder facilitators have expertise with learners of all ages and
abilities. They ensure the safest possible physical and emotional environment
for learners to participate in activities and guided discussions that address
identified goals. A variety of challenges to are tailored to participants'
skills, abilities, previous experience, cultural diversity, learning abilities,
and organizational goals. All facilitators have, at minimum, extensive
experience in the areas they facilitate (most have a BA or MA in a related
field) and current training in First Aid, CPR, and Water Safety.
