Check with your local Conference first to find out what coverage they have for Pathfinder Clubs and what your local church may need to purchase in addition to Conference coverage.

There are two insurance plans available (1) Continental United States based clubs/attendees, (2) All other clubs/attendees. Beginning in 2019 you will be able to purchase these coverage's exclusively online.
