Occupied Site Nights is the sum of all actual nights the sites were occupied by visitors to the camp resorts when summing all occupied sites across the Company’s three camp resorts (for example: 1 camp site is available 7 Site Nights per week).


Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated as income (loss) from operations before depreciation and amortization, interest, accretion, financing costs, and share-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA calculations may be adjusted from period to period to reflect updated calculation methodology. Management will continue to drive towards positive Adjusted EBITDA through additional cost cutting initiatives and maximizing the operating capacity of the camp resort parks.


Advanced Site Nights booked is the sum of all reserved nights for the available sites for the next 12 months forward.

Pathfinder Reports Busiest May Long Weekend on Record

Pathfinder is pleased to announce that this past May long weekend brought in the Company’s highest occupancy on record in the month of May.  All Camp Resorts were at full capacity from May 19-21, with a 4% increase YoY in occupied site nights. Responding to the high reservation demand, Pathfinder was able to temporarily create additional RV sites to accommodate Campers which resulted in higher occupied site nights.  

2023 Advanced Reservations

Booked site nights as of May 25, 2023 for the next 12 months forward was 24,252, up 17% from 20,776 advanced booked same period last year. The increase is driven by the advanced winter stay bookings in April for returning guests. While the customer booking windows are narrowing from the date of arrival for the summer season compared to same period last year, the impact is being offset by earlier winter bookings for the next season. 

Q1 2023 Summary – for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023

  • Revenue in Q1 2023 increased by 12% or $53,306 to $512,384 due to increased volume of winter stay guests in the newer resort locations of Agassiz-Harrison and Parksville. Revenues in Q1 2022 were negatively impacted by a severe winter flood in November 2021.
  • Adjusted loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization decreased by 24% or $73,109 to $234,554 in the current period as a result of increased revenues and reduced operating costs. Property costs and marketing costs returned to a normal level in the current period compared to the same period last year, during which the property and marketing costs were negatively impacted by the winter flood and costs associated with initial design and printing of brochures, respectively. From the corporate side, professional fees decreased since the “go public” transaction in October 2021. The reduction in costs were partially offset by increased salaries and benefits required to support the increased corporate and resort activities.
  • Net loss and comprehensive loss decreased by 3% or $20,906 to $727,352 due to the factors mentioned above and reduced share-based compensation expense, partially offset by increased accretion and interest expense driven by the extension of corporate debt in Q1 2023 and the additional mortgage loan entered into in April 2022 in connection with the Agassiz property expansion.
  • Cash on March 31, 2023 was $544,073 compared to $982,482 in December 31, 2022 largely due to the reduced pace of advanced bookings and increased receivables during fiscal 2023. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic travel restrictions in 2022, there was a general trend for earlier booking in fiscal 2022, which also included reservations for certain long weekends in fiscal 2023. The Management of the Company assesses the reduced pace of advanced bookings for the peak summer reservations as a matter of timing and not an indication of an overall reduced demand for the full year. Receivables comprised mainly of holdbacks from credit card processors for the purpose of mitigating the liquidity risk of the financial intermediary.
  • YTD cash used by operating activities was $208,736 in comparison to cash provided by operating activities of $331,744 in the same period last year, during which the Company benefited from a higher volume of early bookings.
  • Working capital deficiency increased by $628,990 to $8,731,315 from $8,102,325 reported at December 31, 2022, mainly due to a reduction in cash of $438,409 in the current period as well as increased deferred revenues and accrued interests on the convertible debentures. A total $3,931,466 of the working capital deficiency was either paid out or converted to a long-term liability in April 2023.
