Thank you for your interest in our club, the UpState PathFinders. We are South Carolina’s only American Volkssport Club (AVA). Chartered in April 2011. AVA is a member of the International Vollkssport Verband (IVV) – the founding international organization, which began in Germany in the 1960’s Both the IVV and the AVA are based on the participation of members in non-competitive sports to promote fun, fitness, and friendship.
People of all ages, abilities and “walks” of life take part in our club programs and events. Our emphasis is on walking for health, physical fitness, pleasure, and fun. All members take part in planning and overseeing our volkssport events.
