Electives are designed to give the students a choice of classes that are of interest to them. The classes will vary depending on the interests and passions of the current instructors and what they think the students will enjoy the most. Schools that choose electives will not know the classes until they arrive at Pathfinder Ranch. Some examples of elective classes done at Pathfinder Ranch include: animal tracking and exploration, discovery hikes, nature art, advanced rock climbing, recreational classes, and extreme survival skills. To help the students decide on an elective the instructors act out commercials that describe their electives. Classes have different attendance capacities, and sometimes students get their second choice, but it’s always an enjoyable experience no matter the choice they make!
