Pathfinders Kids Club helps to meet the Pathfinders mission with weekly meetings and monthly hikes or other recreational activities for children. We meet each Thursday from 5:30-6:30pm at Hazard Community and Technical College to learn about ourselves and the world around us.
Meetings have fun science centered activities to learn more about the plants and animals we encounter on our monthly hikes. We also explore how the body works and how we can keep ourselves healthy. At the final meeting each month, we celebrate what the children have learned with some active fun such as swimming, bowling or a field day. Children also have the opportunity to participate in service projects for the community. Our goals are to support children in a healthy lifestyle, to increase the amount of time they spend outdoors, to promote their interest in science and their community, and to have a great time while doing these things. We would like to throw a huge thank-you out to Mitch Whitaker from the Raptor Rehabilitation center in Whitesburg Kentucky for hosting a wonderful close encounter at the Raptor Rehabilitation center.
