What are the dates for the 2024 International Pathfinder Camporee?
August 5-11, 2024
How are the dates for the Camporee selected?
Several factors include the location of a large majority of attendees, the NAD calendar, school dates and site availability. The coordination of each of these has contributed to the decision to hold the Believe the Promise International Pathfinder Camporee on August 5-11, 2024. We realize that it would be impossible to choose a date that satisfies every national & international schedule, so we understand that there may be some interested parties that will be unable to attend. Thank you for your understanding.
