An Adventurer is an amazing child, 3 to 9 years old, who loves to learn. Each Adventurer is a unique and special individual. There are several characteristics which are typical of Adventurer-age children.
The Uniqueness of the Adventurer Club
The Adventurer Club was created to give children an opportunity to belong to an organized peer group. The club was created to join other children who are invited to participate in various activities which improve their social skills. From the time children start school until they reach puberty, their need to be with- and be accepted by- their peer group is increasingly strong.
The Adventurer Club involves children 3-9 years old and their parents. The programming and planning for Adventurers is be simple and short, but creative. Parental involvement provides opportunities for parents to participate in the learning experience.
Another Adventurer Club objective
is to provide meaningful and exciting experiences as the children look forward, with anticipation, to moving on to the next level up and some day becoming Pathfinders.
Philosophy to the Adventurer Program
The Adventurer program was created
to assist parents in the most important responsibility as a child’s primary teacher and evangelizer. The program aims to strengthen the parent/child relationship such as worship, reading the Bible, singing
and to further the child’s development in spiritual, physical, mental, and social areas. Through the Adventurer Program, the church, the home, and school work together with the parents to develop a mature, secure and happy child.
The church’s greatest resource is our children; therefore, it is imperative that as
a church we meet the challenge to provide
a program for our children during their early, formative years. We want right habits, thoughts, motives, dispositions, and attitudes to be established. The Wise Man wrote, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Prov. 22:6. This is more than a cliché—it is a scientific formula.
