47,000 Pathfinders Wrap Up Oshkosh Camporee


(system) #1

The International Pathfinder Camporee, held every five years, is a memorable event for young Pathfinders who come from all over the world. The last four Camporees have been held at the Experimental Aircraft Associations AirVenture Campgrounds in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year, about 47,000 Pathfinders are attending the five-day extravaganza, organized by the Seventh-day Adventist Church's North American Division and Center for Youth Evanglism in Berrien Springs, Michigan. There are community outreach projects, sports competitions, pin-trading, arts and crafts, music, parades, dramatic performances and special speakers every day. Today is the final day of the Camporee and you can watch a live stream of the morning (9:30 to 10:30am US Central Time) and evening (8:00pm to 9:30pm US Central Time) meetings on The Hope Channel.

Regular updates on the Camporee are being published by the NAD, as well as unions and conferences, and individual Pathfinder clubs. These photos are all from the NAD.
