Pathfinder Leaders Make Camporees Happen

Pathfinder Leaders Make Camporees Happen

This week, over 1600 Pathfinders descended on Kalispell, Montana for the NPUC Camporee. Held every five years, this event draws pathfinders from the five states of the NPUC and inspires kids with opportunities to play, learn and worship. But it wouldn't happen without the our dedicated leaders! Pastor Daniel Ortega, Oregon Pathfinder director, has led a delegation of 301 pathfinders, staff, coordinators, and other adults on this great adventure.

Each day pathfinders get to learn honors and participate in fun activities But these activities don’t just appear at camporee, they're planned and prepared for by the dedicated coordinators, directors, and staff who aim to make life-long memories with the pathfinders.

This week, the Oregon team is responsible for teaching nine different pathfinder honors. They include: Gold Panning, Bubbles, Mosaic Tile, Teaching Art, Cardmaking, Meteorites, String Art, Tombstones, and Sand.

Over the years, Oregon Conference Pathfinders have also become synonymous with amazing activities. This camporee is no different. The Oregon Cave Trailer has become a camporee tradition. With four different routes through the semi-trailer, Pathfinders have a variety of ways to be delighted, while conquering their fear of small, dark spaces. NPUC Pathfinders are enjoying time exploring the Cave Trailer each day this week.

New this year, the Oregon Conference activities team has added Human Foosball to the mix. Nearly 20 players have to work together to compete in a life-sized foosball game. If you ask the kids, it’s a whole heap of fun, rain or shine!

But none of this is possible without the dedicated adults that make it happen. Thank your local Pathfinder leaders next time you see them. They're helping the next generation learn important life skills, while learning about the world around them, and growing their relationships with Jesus.

Check out a recap of yesterday's activities, including Human Foosball...
