Caravan is a scouting—or kids' club—type of program for children in first through sixth grade. Classes typically meet once a week throughout the school year. Caravan uses an active, hands-on learning approach to help children grow physically, socially, mentally, and spiritually. Caravan focuses on teaching everyday skills with a distinctly Christian focus.
Children become members of one of the three major group based on their age: Searchers (first and second graders), Explorers (third and fourth graders), or Adventurers (fifth and sixth graders). Each group is under the direction of one or more adult guides. The awarding of badges is a fun, but optional, part of this program.
