Communicating with WhatsApp
Outside the United States, WhatsApp is widely used to communicate for free with wireless internet connection. As the US phone system differs from the rest of the world, international guests aren’t able to easily purchase a sim card on arrival in the US, as in other countries. The good news is you can manage with free wifi in airports and hotels, and in some areas at Camporee. International guests are thus encouraged to install WhatsApp on their smart phones and email their mobile/cell phone number, including the country code, to their host club leader and to email@example.com when first introduced. Get your host's phone number, and experiment with texting and calling so you're sure both parties are comfortable using this communication tool before you travel to the USA. Text and call your host with updates on your arrival time, if there are any delays in your travel. Once on site, even though wifi signal is not available everywhere, WhatsApp may prove very helpful.
Each day during Camporee a daily newspaper is printed and handed out at the Youth Director's meetings early each morning. Make sure to ask your Youth Director or Conference Pathfinder Director to bring you copies back to your conference each day. More copies are available at the Information booths located throughout the Camporee. Only a certain number of newspapers are printed each day.
In addition to physical copies of the newspaper, PDF copies are posted on the website once the Camporee is over, so everyone can download and enjoy reading them later.
If you have a great story to tell or information about an event, contact the Camporee Newspaper editor.

Radio Station - Pathfinder Radio
Pathfinder Radio has been broadcasting on the internet since March, 2006. They became an affiliate of 3ABN Radio in June of 2007. They broadcast Live and offer pre-recorded programs 24-7. Ken Grant, owner of Pathfinder Radio, has trained many Pathfinders in the art of radio broadcasting and they operate some of the Live programs he broadcasts.
Before the Camporee, Pathfinder Radio will invite members, both Pathfinders and Staff, to assist in the production and broadcasting of the radio programs. They have youth as young as 8 years old to age 90 working with them. They teach Pathfinders how to create and edit programs, conduct interviews, talk on the radio, and much more.
During the Camporee Pathfinder Radio broadcast the Main Stage evening programs on the Internet and on a very low power FM radio. The FM signal will broadcast about a mile to a mile and a half around the broadcast antenna. Pathfinders who regularly work with Pathfinder Radio In Jacksonville, FL, usually run the station with Ken's supervision.
Pathfinder Radio provides the following at the Camporee:
- Volunteers conduct interviews on location or interview them Live and On the Air.
