Sabbath Morning Balloon Release
Sabbath morning there will be a special balloon releasing ceremony to celebrate those who have been baptized at the Camporee, and those who studied with and help prepare candidates for baptism.
Balloon Release information - available soon
Be a part of the Balloon Ceremony!
You too could be a part of the special Balloon Ceremony on Sabbath morning.
We challenge every Pathfinder club to come to the Camporee with at least one Pathfinder whom they have studied with and prepared for baptism.
How to get started:
Here’s a link to Bible Study resources to aid you in giving a Bible Study - available soon
Begin praying now for God to touch the life of a Pathfinder and help them understand God has “Chosen” them and loves them very much.
Ask God to use you, and partner with Him, in leading out in a Bible Study.
Recognizing God has “Chosen” you, recommit yourself to following Jesus and share His love with others.
