The Camporee will be held at the Cam-Plex Facilities at 1635 Reata Dr, Gillette, WY. This site is different from where the 1999, 2004, 2009, 2014, and 2019 International Pathfinder Camporees were held. The Cam-Plex Facilities offer the facilities and campground for the International Pathfinder Camporee.

Campsite Guidelines

Camping Space Delegation

All clubs will be assigned camping space based on the number of paid registrations for Pathfinders, Staff members, and staff children. This information will be available in April/May, 2024, from your Conference Youth/Pathfinder Director.

  • The campground is somewhat grassy, but does have small patches of cactus in some areas. Before Camporee begins, Pronghorn roam through this area, so be aware of animal dropping. You may want to bring a folding shovel for removing cactus and animal droppings, before setting up your tent.
  • Use tarps under your tents to help protect them.
  • Tent camping area is well organized with street numbers so one can find friends from around the world more easily.
  • Cam-Plex will spray for flies before we arrive since there will be a livestock event before the Camporee. We strongly suggest purchasing fly strips from your local hardware, Home Depot, and Lowes, to help control fies at your campsite.

Campsite Entrance Heights

Maximum campsite entrance height (Union, Conference, & Club) is twenty-five (25) feet.

Special Note: As you build your entrance, safety must be kept in mind. The entrance must be securely held in place because of wind and camper safety. We do not want accidents due to falling materials. Gillette, WY often has wind gusts over 25 mph.

Hazardous Waste & Materials

  • No oils, combustible materials, or any liquids other than water may be poured into Cam-Plex drainage or sewer systems.
  • No tools, machines, cookware, or any other items may be emptied, washed or rinsed in Cam-Plex restrooms. No exceptions.
  • No human waste, diapers, or personal hygiene products may be placed into Cam-Plex drainage or sewer systems.


No charcoal cookers or wood burning fires are permitted. Only cooking with propane-type camp stoves, grills, and appliances are permitted.

Fire Extinguishers Graphic 768x709Clubs

  • The Fire Marshall requests that every club bring 5lb or larger fire extinguishers that are rated at least: 2A:10B:C for use in camping areas.  Large Clubs will need several extinguishers.
  • In addition, if the club will have a large or group cooking area that uses fryers or grease then the Fire Marshal requests that a class K extinguisher also be used.
  • All Fire Extinguishers must have a current service tag (inspected within the past year).

Phone Charging Stations & Electrical Outlets

Electric Power/Generators

The camping area has some electric power hook-ups available in the campground.  For sites with no electric power hook-ups, generators may be used during the daytime during the following hours: 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM. Generators must not exhaust into any tent campsite, as the exhaust will cause sickness. Failure to comply with this guideline will result in authoritative action.

  • Because Gillette, WY can experience gusty winds at times, please plan on securing your tents and pop-up canopies by using weights to weigh down stakes on tents and especially cook/kitchen canopy poles. Being prepared for high winds ahead of time will save you from losing your kitchen canopy and supplies which will get tossed around by the wind. Keep your club safe and plan now for high winds at times.
