March 23: PNW Plants by Jeff Otjen & Gear Library Orientation

The program will provide the opportunity for Pathfinders to get outside once a month with their parents or independently. The program is designed to expose youth to a variety of outdoor activities, and have fun! The kids will get the opportunity to climb, hike, paddle, explore, and have fun. While both parents/guardians are not required to attend outings, a parent/guardian chaperone support is required for all trips. This is a great opportunity for you to get outside with your Pathfinder!

Note: Pathfinders membership is $750 for families joining in September. Students joining in the winter will be prorated. Members will have the option of paying up front or paying the annual fee in a series of installments. This is an annual club.

To join, members must pay the 1st of 4 installments (non-refundable) by October 31. They do so by using this website page to register. Be aware that the price displayed on this page is the price of the 1st installment and that the program costs $750. Interested members will have the opportunity to join in on at least one meeting and trip before paying and committing.
