Pathfinder Village

For Girls Ages 13-16 pics/pathfinder.png


Pathfinder Village Program Philosophy 

Pathfinder Village is open to girls ages 13-16. Living in a self-sufficient village, Pathfinders are located on  the South Side of Stony Lake. There is a waterfront, boat dock, and athletic field that are shared with the Outback  Village. Without electricity or the pull of technology, Pathfinders live simply allowing for focus on the important things  in life. With their peers and the guidance of strong counselors, Pathfinders is a close community that strives to give  all girls a chance to build self-esteem and gain independence. Pathfinder Village provides a safe environment for  campers to take positive risks, both testing and finding themselves. The village also allows campers to try all that  camp has to offer from paddle-boarding, high ropes, and cooking their own meals to sailing, gardening, and taking  part in beloved village traditions. Highlights include joining with Ranch, Outback, and Trailblazers Villages for Pink  Flamingo Day and the Ranch Hoe Down. Pathfinder campers join the Outback campers for a three-night trip to  northern Michigan exploring the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and canoeing the Manistee River. Forging  new interests, positive relationships, and self-reliance, Pathfinder Village is more than the activities, but a home away  from home. The Pathfinder village is a place where the girls can be their best selves and make friendships that will  carry with them into adulthood. 

Cabin/Village Arrangements 

Pathfinders sleep in rustic cabins that are located  close to restroom and shower facilities. 

Meals and Nutrition 

Pathfinder campers prepare their meals and wash their dishes in their village kitchen. Balanced meals are planned in collaboration with the director of dining services, and allergy and special dietary needs are accommodated.
