The Adventurer awards are designed to be used in connection with the Adventurer curriculum. It is recommended that a variety of awards be offered to help each child have a well-rounded understanding of many interests.

It is the desire of the committee that the teacher will be creative and make the award meaningful to the Adventurer child. Remember to challenge the more advanced child without discouraging the lesser achiever.
The goal is to help each child experience achievement and to learn new activities and ideas in an interesting and fun way. Affirm each child, remembering that there is more than one right way. Encourage each child to do his/her best. We do not need to be perfect. God is not finished with us yet.
