Pathfinders are ages 11 to 17 (grades 6 through 12). The Pathfinder program is designed to empower and embolden our scouts, encouraging them to plan and implement their own projects, adventures, service, and skills. Adult leaders do not plan these meetings; they are merely offering supervision, transport, and making connections in the community when needed.
In addition to being role models for the other age groups, Pathfinders often participate in events and projects independently of the larger group. Pathfinders work on a wide array of badges and can earn special awards by demonstrating their leadership skills and self-motivation.

Uniform and Badge Placement
Pathfinders wear a long-sleeved collared work shirt with a pocket on each side in shades of gray or blue. We like this one from Columbia. Patches are placed on the front and sleeves per the diagram below.
