NAD Pathfinder Camporee Heads Back to Oshkosh

North Pacific Union Pathfinders will be attending the largest six-day Adventist youth event in the world from Aug. 9–14, 2004, in Oshkosh, Wis.

More than 20,000 Pathfinders from more than 60 countries will be attending this historic youth event to experience unbelievable fun and spiritual growth.

Each night the powerful life story of Joseph will be presented so all can see how he kept his "Faith on Fire" in the good and the bad times. A special, giant outdoor stage is being designed for this unique Bible story. Two massive Jumbotron screens with a state-of-the-art sound system will make it easy for our “city” of 20,000 to see and hear God’s message.

This once-in-a-lifetime event for many Pathfinders will also include being inspired by some of the best marching/drill teams in the world such as the Hong Kong club, which took first place at the 1999 Discover the Power Camporee. New for the 2004 camporee is a drum core exhibition that everyone will want to see and hear.

Many Pathfinders are preparing to be baptized and invested as Master Guides. Others are planning to collect new and used Bibles to help surpass the 32,000 Bibles collected in the 1999 Discover the Power Camporee. The Faith on Fire Camporee goal is 100,000 Bibles.

Faith on Fire Camporee is an opportunity to let Jesus come close to Pathfinders in a powerful and special way.
