About this issue:

Pathfinders are active and this summer 46,000 of them converged on Oshkosh, Wis., for the 2014 Forever Faithful International Camporee. The events during the five days included plenty of honors earned, marching and parades, and evening programs following the life of Daniel. The Gleaner was there to document the events.
