Builders is a class  for 8 year olds, it is the 5th class in the Adventurer Curriculum

To receive the Builder Class Pin, Adventurers must complete the Basic Requirements, as well as, at least one section from My God, My Self, My Family and My World groups
Many Clubs choose the sections that include an Adventurer Award badge, Adventurers love collecting badges! Remember Adventurers can complete required awards they have missed from a previous class, but cannot do required awards from a higher class. E.g. A Builder can do required awards from Busy Bee and Sunbeam but not Helping Hand

Use the links under each requirement group for resource documents

Class Cards are available from the South Pacific Division through your local Youth Department. A sign off version of the class card in A4 format is available in the Class Resource document link

The awards pictured on this page are both the required awards and some suggestions for the nature award for the My World section
