Pathfinder Camporee 2010

November 01, 2010 | Deanna Harris

What do you do when the temperatures are dipping into the freezing zone and the Pathfinder club is getting started for the year? You go camping, of course.

Montana Pathfinders braved cold nights and enjoyed perfect fall days at the 2010 Montana Conference Pathfinder Camporee. Five clubs from around the state gathered at the conference property near Nevada Creek Reservoir on the weekend of Sept. 10–12. Pathfinders participated in kayaking, archery, hiking and just getting to know each other.

Morning and evening worship talks focused on "Pictures of Jesus." Aric Cooksley, Ronan (Mont.) Church elder, helped the Pathfinders see how Jesus meets us where we are, loves us and wants to be our friend, sets an example for us to follow, and then transforms us.

As clubs prepared to leave on Sunday afternoon, phone numbers and addresses were exchanged between new friends and an eager anticipation for next year's camporee was in the air.
