Pathfinder Reports & Point System

Southeastern California Conference requires certain reports to be completed and turned in to attain a trophy at the Fair.  Even though the Pathfinder year runs from September to August, the points and reports system is from May to April.  The different reports are found in the document center.

Reports must be completed and turned in fifteen days before the Fair.  No points will be awarded for activities scheduled after the Fair.  Points for those activities will be awarded the following Pathfinder year. 25 points will be deducted if you register after the deadline for any event.

Some of these reports/forms need to be completed by the county coordinator then emailed or faxed to the Youth Ministries office where they will be compiled.


Breakdown for Trophy Levels (yearly points possible 1,800+)

  • Sweepstakes Club 1750-1800+\
  • Trophy Club 1550-1749
  • Honor Club 1350-1549

Points will be figured as follows:

100 points per month for 8 months from May to April.

A great deal of emphasis is placed on the NAD year-end report.  This information is used by the NAD Youth Ministries, Union and Conference personnel to determine what is needed to strengthen the Pathfinder program.  It is vital that your information be as accurate as possible.  If your staff keeps weekly records of attendance, awards earned, and investitures, this report is easy to complete at the end of the year.  This report is due July 1st with a deadline by July 31st.
