What is Caravan?

Caravan is a scouting, or kids’ club, type of program that meets once a week on Wednesday night at 6:30 pm. Children are assigned to one of the four groups according to their grade in school:

  • Benson Buddies (preschool and kindergartners)

  • Searchers (1st and 2nd graders)

  • Explorers (3rd and 4th graders)

  • Adventurers (5th and 6th graders)


Each group is under the direction of one or more adult leaders who are called "guides." 

The Caravan ministry exists to help elementary-age children become more like Jesus by encouraging their growth in the four specific areas mentioned in Luke 2:52: mental (wisdom),physical (stature), spiritual (favor with God), and social (favor with men).

Caravan is a time for children to learn how they can grow in all areas of their lives. It also helps children develop an appreciation for and understanding of Nazarene heritage and beliefs.
