What are the dates for the Chosen International Pathfinder Camporee?
August 12-17, 2019
How are the dates for the Camporee selected?
Several factors include the location of a large majority of attendees, the NAD calendar, and EAA site availability. The coordination of each of these has contributed to the decision to hold the Chosen International Pathfinder Camporee on August 12-17, 2019. We realize that it would be impossible to choose a date that satisfies every national & international schedule, so we understand that there may be some interested parties that will be unable to attend. Thank you for your understanding.

How does Hosting a club work?
A Host Club is a North American Division Pathfinder Club that commits and is approved to provide food and tents for a group of international guests from Monday evening, August 12, 2019 through Sunday morning, August 18, 2019.
International guests who choose to be hosted by a North American Division club or conference will be responsible for their own bedding, towels, soap, clothing, and other personal items. The NAD hosting club will provide food and camping space. International guests are also responsible for all travel expenses to and from Camporee, visas, and any shopping or other travel while in the USA.
Hosts will supply tents and food at their campsite from Tuesday evening through Sabbath evening. Hosted guests will camp with their host group, within the North American Division area, organized by conferences within unions. Once we have introduced you to your host via email, we encourage you to clarify expectations and prepare to help each other make the Camporee a life shaping experience for each member.
