When Daniel and his fellow Israelites were taken in captivity from Israel to Babylon, they would have traveled a distance of at least 544 miles, or 876 km.

Within the United States alone, we have Pathfinders from Miami, Florida (1,354 mi/2,179 km) Anchorage, Alaska (2,707 mi/4,357 km), and Honolulu, Hawaii (4,207 mi/6,770 km). Our friends from Seoul, Korea (6,382 mi/10,260 km), Moscow, Russia (4,860 mi/7,821 km) and Nairobi, Kenya (7,978 mi/12,838 km) will travel a distance at least nine times that of Daniel! Everyone coming to Camporee this year has a different journey—and we want to hear about yours! Please answer the questions below and email firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Tuesday, August 12, for possible inclusion in the daily Camporee newspaper.
