What Is Adventurers?
Adventurers is a Christian activity-based program for children aged four to nine years old, run by volunteers. It is a family-based program and is designed to support parents/caregivers and provide Bible-based learning and new skills for children. Adventurer Clubs are found all over the world. In Australia, all volunteers involved in a Club are required to follow safety procedures such as Working With Children Checks and AdSafe training to ensure we provide a safe place for children.
What Happens At Adventurers?
A club meeting may include a club flag, parade and uniforms. The Adventurer Pledge and Law is recited. Many Clubs sing an Adventurer Song. As it is a Christian program, prayer and worship are an essential part of club meetings. Then it is time for activity-based progressive age-appropriate classes. There is a series of six classes, one for each year from ages 4 to 9. Adventurers also earn badges known as Stars, Diamonds and Awards. Classes in the South Pacific Division [SPD] are based on the Adventurer Manual produced by the SPD.
Who Can Join Adventurers?
Adventurer Clubs are organised by local Seventh-Day Adventist churches, and joining a club is open to everyone aged 4 – 9 years old (or between Kindy and Year 4). Current active clubs can be contacted directly, and if you want to establish your own club please contact the Children’s Ministries Director to discuss the process. The program can also be followed or adapted for children in remote areas where there is no Club available.
