Session Description

A week designed for a small group of middle school boys who'd rather build skills than compete in large group games. Pathfinders will have fun with exclusive activities like long-range archery and wood crafts. They will learn about vehicle maintenance and how to right a flipped canoe. Boys love the paintball tactics class. They will practice accuracy, movement, and team work taking on Dan Mayer and his program staff at the end of the week.

There are interactive chapel sessions and cabin group discussions based on a teaching theme from the Bible. All teaching is designed to be applicable for middle school aged campers from all walks of life and set them up for success.

All Phantom Ranch staff are screened then trained in our child protection policies as well as helping campers conquer homesickness.
