Adventurer Stars, Chips, and Awards

The Adventurer curriculum takes the goals of the Adventurer program -- that children will commit their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ and that they will acquire the habits, skills, and knowledge to live for Jesus today -- and turns them into fun and practical activities that Adventurers will enjoy.

Stars, chips, and awards are fun ways for Adventurers to explore their world, learn skills, and be creative. When the requirements are completed, the Adventurer receives a patch that is proudly worn on his or her sash. Patches for Little Lambs are called stars, for Eager Beavers they are called chips, and for Busy Bees through Helping Hands they are called awards. In addition to patches that Adventurers earn during club meetings, there are many additional patches that parents and guardians can help their children earn at home. The requirements for all current Adventurer stars, chips, and awards are included on the Resource USB Flash Drive available from However, there are new stars, chips, and awards being developed all the time so subscribe to news and alerts for updated content.

At each level, the curriculum encourages an age-appropriate, active learning approach. Instead of asking children to learn a great deal of factual information, it introduces them to general concepts. The children learn to apply these concepts to their own lives by participating in a wide variety of experiences.

The Adventurer curriculum is divided into six levels: Little Lamb, Eager Beaver, Busy Bee, Sunbeam, Builder, and Helping Hand.
