Pathfinder Leadership Award Camp @ Dickeys Flat Adventure Camp
Mar 1 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 3 @ 2:00 pm

PLA Camp is for those actively working through Pathfinder Leadership Award (PLA).

This is intended as the first step in equipping leaders to minister to their Pathfinders. Instead of theory in a classroom, we will experience and participate in learning, just like your Pathfinders need to.

Applications close Monday, 18 February 2019.

When: 6 pm Friday 1 March – 2 pm Sunday 3 March

Location: Dickeys Flat Adventure Camp – Dickey Flat Rd, Waitawheta. (NOTE: this is NOT the DoC camp).

Cost: $35 per person.

Camping: please come equipped to base camp with all your own equipment (food, tents, sleeping mats and sleeping bags). You will also need gear for a half day walk, wet weather gear, etc. There is flush toilets and hot / cold water for washing dishes.

16+ Age Limit

A player must be 16 years or older. All the SDA Youth Sports Tournaments have an age limit of 16+ for players. This has been set to ensure the safety, fairness and duty of care requirements for young people playing at this level of competition. This age limit policy also means that we meet our Church’s Safe Place Policies (the tournaments are not currently set up to meet the requirements for under 16s) and the wishes of our churches (who indicated in a previous survey that they do not want to play against under 16s in our Youth Tournaments). Thank you for taking note of this age limit and protecting the standard of our Tournaments. If a team does use an under 16 player, they forfeit that game and the under-age player will be asked to leave the court.

Leaving by boat from Half Moon Bay on Friday evening, and return Sunday afternoon. Accommodation will be the old American Army Barracks, now the Motutapu Outdoor Adventurer Camp, located right on the beach. Food will be provided, as well as mattresses, hot showers and toilets! Sabbath will be a special program involving worship and activity. But from Sunset Sabbath the adventurer really starts! A Rogaine with markers all over both Matutapu and Rangitoto islands for you to find and collect in your team.

This is intended to be suitable to anyone who is interested, regardless of their ability, fitness or experience in the outdoors.

Rogaine Challenge

This allows the competitive Pathfinders to set a significant challenge for themselves, while those more social Pathfinders can also participate and enjoy closer parts of the course while strolling along the beach and through old army bunkers and other natural or historic features.

Teams will be awarded either Participation (just patch) or “B” grade (Patch with silver star) or “A” grade (patch with gold star) based on how many points they achieve during the Rogaine. Markers are valued based on distance, complexity or other factors.

Teams (4-8 Pathfinders plus an adult leader per team)

Large Pathfinder clubs attending are welcome to put in multiple teams! This gives you the chance to grade your teams to have competitive or advanced teams and more social or beginner teams. If you don’t have enough Pathfinders from your club attending or are a teen who does not belong to a club, you can join with another club, or contact Dale Hokin and he will look to put a couple of mixed teams together.

What to Bring

Clothing, hat, sunscreen, sun glasses and insect repellent. Water bottle or blader (min 2ltr pp). Wet weather gear. Day pack for Rogaine challenge. Sturdy footwear. Towel and toiletries and swimmers if you wish to swim. Cutlery, cup, plate and bowl. Sleeping bag and pillow

Group gear (min one per group): First aid kit, Compass.


Pathfinder $70. Adult Leader $80 (1 to 4-8 Pathfinders). Additional leaders will need to contact Dale Hokin to ensure sufficient space on the trip (boat and bed spaces are limited to 110) and they will need to cover a higher percentage of their costs.

Cost includes 2 x ferry trips (on then off the island), dorm accommodation, hot showers, flush toilets, and food provided!
