Many kids ages 4 – 9 around the world have discovered one of the most fun clubs ever created for them. The Adventurer Club is designed to strengthen parent/child relationships by providing specialized weekly club activities tuned into the psychological needs of this age group while simultaneously giving parents opportunities for learning parenting skills and enjoying special activities with their children.
The volunteer leadership attend special training sessions to understand how to maximize the focus of the Adventurer Club in strengthening the parent-child bonds and enable both parents and children to understand their relationship to God.
Each child is encouraged to participate in all activities and parents/guardians are given assignments along with their child. There are many age-related challenging activities on the Adventurer menu. These range from games and outdoor activities to nature exploration and family camping, field trips, bible adventure, and community service projects. A six-level age-specific curriculum is used along with many specialized award areas of crafts, nature, recreation, spiritual development, and home arts. The five (six) levels are: Little Lambs (age 4/Pre-k), Eager Beavers (age 5/kindergarten), Busy Bees (age 6/first grade), Sunbeams (age 7/second grade), Builders (age 8/third grade), and Helping Hands (age 9/fourth grade).
The Texas Conference Adventurer program serves an intercultural community of children in pre-kindergarten to 4th and their parents and caregivers through this children’s ministry. The purpose of the program is to support parents and caregivers in leading and encouraging their children in a growing, joyful, love relationship with Jesus Christ. It offers instructional curriculum, family enrichment, supplementary resources, and volunteer training from within the Seventh-day Adventist philosophy. The Adventurer program should work to fulfill the gospel commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and depends on the support of a congregation strong in mission and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
