The Pathfinders session is designed with young middle schoolers in mind. There are active games and activities throughout the week, but the focus is on experiential discovery. We show the guys how to change a car tire and check the oil level. We canoe across Phantom Lake. We do short AND long-range archery, navigate the Challenge Course as a cabin team, and end the day around the campfire.
There are interactive chapel times complete with worship music they'll want stuck in their head, professional communicators who'll make God's Word come to life, and cabin group discussions based on a teaching theme from the Bible. All teaching is designed to be applicable for middle school campers from all walks of life and help them become better lifelong followers of Jesus.
This session coincides with our Discoverers session for middle school girls. Each session has their own unique schedule and combines for chapel and some activities. Phantom Ranch staff actively teach campers how to have fun together and treat each other with respect, paying close attention to coed interactions.
All Phantom Ranch staff are screened then trained in a variety of topics including our child protection policies and helping campers conquer homesickness.

CABIN — basic bedding for a twin-size mattress (pillow, sheets/sleeping bag/blanket), bath towel (different from beach towel) and toiletries (soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste).
WATERFRONT — beach towel (different from bath towel), quick drying sandals (easy to identify among similar sandals; shoes are required when not at the waterfront), sunscreen, swim trunks that fit snugly in the waist (no one wants to lose their shorts while riding the banana boat!) and are not see-through when wet; swim shirt (with SPF is good).
AROUND CAMP — labeled, reusable water bottle (available for purchase in the camp store), clothes to get dirty in, close-toed footwear (not just flip-flops), active footwear, rain jacket, pants and flashlight
BIBLE — Bible's often get damaged or lost while at camp. Please do not send a family Bible, oversized, or one with sentimental value. Please make sure the camper's name and accurate contact information is in the Bible. Campers do not need to bring their own Bible, but campers are encouraged to follow along with their own Bible. Phantom Ranch has Bibles on hand for use and purchase. All Bible verses being used and taught are made available for campers.
OPTIONAL — secondary swim suit, swim goggles (consider cheap goggles in case of loss), camera, personal paintball goggles/pads, fishing gear.
