- Pastor’s Information – We have prepared important information for Pastors who will be assisting Pathfinders at the Camporee. Please view the Pastor’s Baptismal Information sheet.
- Sabbath Morning Celebration – There will be a special baptism ceremony Sabbath morning to celebrate all the baptisms at the International Camporee. The ceremony will also celebrate a second group: those who have studied with the baptismal candidates. We hope that every club will be represented in that group of individuals by bringing at least one Pathfinder who will be baptized during the camporee.
Being baptized during the International Pathfinder Camporee has been a long-standing tradition. What a beautiful place it is to make known to the world you have decided to follow Christ all the way!
