What are the dates for the 2024 International Pathfinder Camporee?

August 12-17, 2024

How are the dates for the Camporee selected?

Several factors include the location of a large majority of attendees, the NAD calendar, and EAA site availability. The coordination of each of these has contributed to the decision to hold the Believe the Promise International Pathfinder Camporee on August 12-17, 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.

Will I receive a patch before leaving the Camporee?

Clubs will receive Camporee patches, from their Conference Youth/Pathfinder Director or Area Coordinators, after they have inspected your camping areas, before leaving to return home.

Who can volunteer at the Camporee?

Only those living in the North America Division can serve as volunteers at the Camporee.

Apply to volunteer.
