ANNUAL CLUB REGISTRATION
 
Pathfinder Directors, we updated our application forms to on-line, fillable forms for the annual club registration process, except for Form A. The new Pathfinder Year (2016-2017) is beginning and we will have you now fill in the Part B and C information online. The only form I will need you to download and return to me once it is signed is Form A.

 NOTE: All staff must complete children protection online training and successfully complete the background check. All clubs are required to participate in the annual Pathfinder fair and annual state/union camporee in order to receive 1st place. Clubs will not be able to register for any Oshkosh Camporee until they are a registered club through the Minnesota Conference.

Both new and current clubs need to fill out the application forms and the online background check and child protection training. This process will need to be renewed every 3 years.
