Pathfinder Community Parade

The Pathfinder Community Parade will take place in downtown Gillette on Sabbath August 10, 2024, at 2:30 PM.

Approximately 2500 Pathfinders from potentially over 100 countries look forward to presenting their unique countries attire, flags, uniforms, drill & march teams, and drum corps teams to publicly thank Campbell County for hosting the International Camporee. 

The Parade participants will be chosen by ‘Invitation Only.’ This event is for the community and as such, we are asking that only the invited participants and volunteers come to the Pathfinder Community Parade.

We are asking each NAD Union to field approximately up to 200 Pathfinders. These units can be Pathfinder Drum Corps, Drill Teams, Floats, vehicles, and/or Clubs that march well as a cohesive unit and can march in sync and in step.

International groups interested in participating should contact Nestor Osman, after confirming their attendance by obtaining US Visas and Camporee Tickets.
