PHILOSOPHY: The Adventurer program was created to assist parents in their important responsibilities as a child's primary teacher and evangelist. The program aims to strengthen the parent/child relationship and to further the child's development in spiritual, physical, mental, and social areas. The Adventurer Club was created to give children an opportunity to belong to an organized peer group. To join, children are invited to participate in various activities which will improve their social skills. The Adventurer club involves children in grades Pre-K - 4 and their parents. The programming and planning for Adventurers should be simple and short, but creative.
