WHAT IS ADVENTURERS?
The Adventurer Club is a Seventh-day Adventist church-sponsored ministry and is all about supporting families as they work to develop happy, healthy, mature kids. It provides a fun and creative environment for all kids (ages 4—9) to learn more about the Bible, health, nature, getting along with others, and more! Plus, it gives parents & guardians an opportunity to improve their parenting skills while enjoying special activities with their children.
The Adventurers Club is open to all kids ages 4-9 with Pre-K through 4th Grade. We believe the family circle is precious in God's eyes and has measureless impact. The Adventurer Club is a way for our church to partner with families in helping kids:
· Develop a Christ-like character
· Experience the joy of doing things well
. Express their love for Jesus
· Strengthen their ability to get along with others
· Discover their God-given abilities and learn to use them in serving others
· Improve their understanding of what makes families strong
What to expect
The Pikes Peak Adventurer Club meets twice a month (generally the 1st and 3rd Sabbath), September through May from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. Children are expected to wear uniforms (Field uniform) to meetings. Each meeting starts off with the recitation of the Adventurer Law, Adventurer Pledge and a devotional. Then the kids head off to their classes. Classes are exciting, interactive ways for children to explore faith, nature, science and much more. Hands on approaches to learning make classes great ways to reinforce lessons kids are learning. Lessons correspond with specific awards. At the end of the Adventurer Club year, your child will receive patches representing earned awards during the year.
Each class has volunteer leaders, but parents are encouraged to participate along with their kids. All volunteers have passed a background check.
In addition to classes twice a month, you will have the option of earning additional awards at other times of the year. We also participate in a service project and/or a fun club outing once a month. There is also a camp-in, Adventurer Fun Day, and an Induction (opening) and Investiture (graduation) ceremony.

WHAT TO WEAR?
The uniform makes the Adventurer Club real to its members. The uniform becomes an emblem of a standard, builds loyalty to the club, and brings members into a sense of community. The uniform should always be neat, clean, and worn with pride.
Two styles of uniform will be used at various times:
Club t-shirts (field uniform) will be used most of the time for club meetings, field trips, and other club activities.
A full dress uniform (Class A uniform) will be worn for special occasions and designated service projects. (Please note: some portions of the full dress uniform are not included in the registration fee.)
