Camporee Site Location
The Camporee will be held at the Cam-Plex Facilities at 1635 Reata Dr, Gillette, WY. (Do not ship to this address.) This site is different from where the 1999, 2004, 2009, 2014, and 2019 International Pathfinder Camporees were held. The Cam-Plex Facilities offer the greatest facilities and campground for the International Pathfinder Camporee.
Campsite Roads, Entrances & Exits
There are 9 entrances & exits from the campground camping area that will be patrolled 24 hours a day. Throughout the campground there is an excellent gravel road system to assist in getting around. All campground roads have names to assist in navigation.
There will be parking lots around the perimeter of the campground for vehicles. Large vehicles (buses, trucks, cargo trailers) need to be parked in the Southeast parking lot, located at the corner of East Boxelder Rd. & Fox Park Ave., because other parking lots are too small and will not accommodate a large number of these vehicles.

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 flat with grass and no rocks. Tent camping area is well organized with street numbers so one can find friends from around the world more easily.
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.

No tools, machines, cookware, or any other items may be emptied, washed or rinsed in Cam-Plex restrooms. No exceptions.

Phone Charging Stations
There will be charging stations located throughout the campground. Conferences should provide charging stations within their conference headquarters at the campground. Check with your local conference Youth Director.
Electrical outlets will be available outside the shower houses for hair dryers and razors ONLY. Small mirrors will also be available. These are not to be used as a charging station for your phones or other items needing charging.
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.
Tent Stakes/Digging Holes
6″ tent stakes only maybe driven into the ground in all locations of the camping area. Permission must be received from the Services/Facilities Director, Vern Byrd, before any stake longer than 6″ is driven into the ground because of the underground utilities that cross the property (Cam-Plex requirement). NO EXCEPTIONS! Once you have permission you MUST call 811, to have someone come to check for underground utilities before placing any stakes longer than 6″. Failure to do this may be costly to you.
Call 811 before placing stakes 12″ or longer in the ground at the Camporee. View 811 calling informtion.
- Because Gillett, 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.
No digging holes or trenches in the campground or activity area is allowed at any time. NO EXCEPTIONS!
