Caravan is a scouting, or kids’ club program that meets once a week during the school year on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 PM.

Children are assigned to one of the three major groups:

Searchers
(kindergarten & first grade)
Explorers
(second & third grade)
Adventurers
(fourth & fifth grade)

Each group is under the direction of one or more adult leaders who are called “guides.” They work and earn badges for different life skill such as cooking, time management, and many other character building values.

Welcome to the new Caravan Adventure!

The boys and girls will be completing 8-10 badges this year along with earning the 4 Articles of Faith and working on 2 badges in the areas of the U.S.A. (and our flag) and the study of our world.

Our 8 group badges are as follows:  Cooking & Music (Mental Badges), The Bible/Bible memory & Stewardship (Spiritual Badges), Crafts & Physical Fitness (Physical Badges), and Party Planning (Christmas Program on December 11, 2011 — Koinonia/Soup, Sam, & Salad Dinner) & Team Building: Working Together in the field of Science Projects (Social Badges).
