What are the dates for the 2024 International Pathfinder Camporee?

August 5-11, 2024

Where can I find promotional resources?

You can find logos, videos and graphics on our promotional resources page.

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.

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.

What is the weather like in Gillette, WY?

  • During the day we expect temperatures up to 89 degrees Fahrenheit (32 Celsius), and at the night as low as 46 degrees Fahrenheit (8 Celsius). This is normal for mountain areas and is not a problem at all. You just need to be prepared.Day dressing: Consider using shirts or t-shirts, shorts or light pants. Wear loose, breathable clothing: Lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that breathes well will help your body regulate temperature. Don’t forget to cover your head, use sunscreen, and stay hydrated all the time.Night dressing: For the Nighttime program, in case of low temperatures, consider dress in layers.
    • The first layer could include long underpants and a long sleeve shirt, both comfortable and dry. Include thick and dry socks, a fleece hat, and gloves. (This layer could also work to sleep).
    • The second layer could be long pants and a fleece jacket.
    • The third layer could be just another jacket on top.

    Don’t forget to bring some blankets to sit on, but also to cover if needed.
