Fun Day is held annually on the third Sunday in April unless that falls on Easter and then it is the fourth Sunday. It is intended to incorporate fun as well as learning, such as going to a zoo or children's museum. Specifics such as cost and time vary from year to year but the goal is to make it affordable and accessible to every Adventurer Club. Adventurers and staff get a patch for the day and may, depending on what the activity is, earn an award as well. The annual NCC Adventurer Pin is handed out this day.

The Bike Derby will be held at Sacramento Adventist Academy this year. Adventurers have a chance to earn Awards in Road Safety and Cyclist. Eager Beavers earn Beginning Biking, and Little Lambs earn an NCC Award in Safety. Riding the track with friends and family, good food, and prizes for the most laps ridden are just some of the fun.

family fun weekends
October 27-29, 2017
Del 10 al 12 de noviembre 2017
One of the beliefs of the Adventurer Ministry is that families are important, and spending time together is important to families. This annual event, held in the fall at Leoni Meadows, provides families who are part of an NCC Adventurer Ministry with an entire weekend of activities to build family relationships. All of the activities are designed to get families working and learning together about their God, their world, and themselves. The theme this year is the forest and Christian service. Costs vary depending on the lodging and meal choices each family makes. The first FFW is the last weekend in October, the primary language is English, the second FFW is the second weekend in November, and the primary language is Spanish. Registration will be available online at the Leoni Meadows website starting October 9 for the first weekend and October 23 for the second weekend. Check back here at that time for the link to that site.
PIN DRAWING CONTEST
Yearly in January
Click here to download a 8.5 x 11 pdf (2 pages) of the 2017 rules & official drawing form.
The annual Adventurer Pin is created from a drawing done by a child who is a member of a registered NCC Adventurer Club. The winner has their beautiful design made into a pin that will be given to all the Adventurers on Fun Day, and wins $25 besides. Each Club submits their drawings to the NCC Adventurer Team. A winner is chosen, production begins, and the pins are ready to share on Fun Day. This year's theme is Service which comes from the Youth Department theme of Encounter, Mentor, Serve. Service is a way of life we learn from Jesus' example. The pin drawing should reflect the theme of Adventurers serving others.
