Pathfinder Summit 2016

Pathfinder Summit is a biennial event (every second year, alternating with Ranger Revolution) for girls in their 2nd or 3rd year of Pathfinders (current 1st or 2nd year Pathfinders). It is an opportunity for registered Pathfinders and Pathfinder Guiders from around BC to come together as patrols and explore the Pathfinder Program, with a focus on leadership. Participants explore subjects they might not encounter at unit meetings and are encouraged to take information back with them to share with their units. Girls and Guiders stay at the HI-Vancouver Jericho Beach hostel and participate in Pathfinder Summit activities at Guide House in Vancouver.

The objective of this event is to help girls from across BC by building the skills necessary to take on leadership roles in their units, in their communities and in Guiding.

Where: Vancouver, BC
Who: Open to 2nd & 3rd Year Pathfinder patrols from BC
When: October 21-23, 2016
Cost: $315 per patrol of 4 Pathfinders ($78.75 per girl)

If you would like to attend this event with a patrol from our unit, please bring a deposit cheque for $78.75 made out to 9th Vancouver Pathfinders by Wednesday May 4th. You do not need to register on your own. The Unit Guiders will apply for patrols on behalf of the unit.
