Pathfinders is an international youth organization for young people in grades 5 - 10 sponsored
by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Hyde Park Constellations Pathfinder Club is
sponsored and supported by the Hyde Park Seventh-day Adventist Church however, church
affiliation or membership is not required to join the club. Registration forms are at the end of
this page. Registration deadline is the last Sunday in August. Fees are due at the first meeting
which is usually the 2nd or 3rd Sunday in September.
We blend physical, mental, social and spiritual experiences in a full calendar of classes and
activities. From our annual ski trip to Feed My Starving Children, we have camping, honors
classes, community service projects, drill teams, Bible Bowl teams and just plain fun.
Everything is geared to helping youth:
- develop their relationship with God,
- make wise choices in life,
- hang out with positive youth,
- learn leadership skills,
- excel in teamwork
- appreciate God's creation
- live a healthy lifestyle
- develop lifelong hobbies and skills
We meet twice a month (1st and 3rd Sundays) with other activities planned as scheduled.
Being a member of the Hyde Park Constellations, is a commitment. Our club standing as a
whole is dependent on each member being present and active. We expect pathfinders and
parents to attend all scheduled meetings.
Our year begins in August/September. Induction (welcoming new Pathfinders) is in
October/November and the year concludes in July with the 4th of July Parade. June marks the
winding down of the Pathfinder year with Pathfinder Day, investiture and the Pathfinder Fair.
