The Pathfinder Club is a world-wide program organized and directed by the Youth Department of the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Pathfinders offers a wide range of learning, life, and outdoor experiences for young people 10 to 15 years of age (and older) and is operated by the International Seventh-day Adventist Church under the direction and control of a local Conference Youth Director.
Every five years, an International Pathfinder Camporee is held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA where over 50,000 people Pathfinders, leaders, friends, and families gather from all over the world; it is the largest five-day Adventist Youth Event in the world. The 2019 Chosen International Camporee is from Monday, August 12 to Saturday, August 17, 2019. Days are filled with fun activities, honors (learning awards for a variety of categories including: arts, crafts, hobbies, health, science, outdoor industries, outreach, recreation, etc.), events, and ministry opportunities.
Bronte Seventh-day Adventist Church is pleased to be sending approximately 50 people from their Pathfinder Club to this event. To raise funds to support the costs associated with the Camporee, our church will be hosting a free community car wash, barbeque, and bake sale on Sunday, July 28, 2019, whereby attendees will be asked to support this event through free-will offerings. This event will be an excellent opportunity for our neighbours to get to know us, learn about the types of services our church can provide, and even find our more information on how their own children can also be involved in the Pathfinder Club. Based on previous community events, we are anticipating that approximately 350 people will be coming through our doors that day.
If you, your friends, and/or family are available on Sunday, July 28, 2019, please pop by to have your car washed and enjoy a healthy barbeque lunch! All ages are welcome; we would love to have you join us!
