Speaking during its official opening, the Greater Rift Valley Conference youth Director leader Pastor Peter Kamau Githinji thanked the parents for allowing their kids to camp together as they have recognized the importance of such events. Githinji said the campers will not go home empty but with full of spiritual knowledge emphasis and physical development.

The pathfinder club or simply pathfinders is a department of the Seventh Day Adventist Church which works specifically with the cultural, social and religious education of children and teens.

Much of the pathfinder club’s program is built on physical activities and according to the pathfinder club manual the focus is on the physical-mental-spiritual growth tripod due to the fact young people between ten and fifteen years old are at a stage of growth and very rapid physical development.
