BURLESON, TEX. – The Southwestern Union is happy to announce the 2021 Pathfinder Camporee, taking place at Lone Star Camp in Athens, Tex., on Oct. 28-31, 2021. Many have been eagerly waiting to see if the camporee would take place this year. While the Union had planned for this camporee to take place in April of this year at Lone Star Camp, the decision was made to postpone the event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As things began to change and slowly open, we prayed, asking the Lord for guidance as we planned for a new date. We are so excited that we will be able to host the Union-wide camporee in its originally planned location this October.
I want every Pathfinder to know that it’s their time to shine for Jesus Christ, it’s their time to stand up for what is right, it’s their time to give Bible studies, it’s their time to live for God! Our theme for this Camporee is: It’s My Time.
The registration is now open and you can go to SWUCamporee.org to register your club. There, you will find the cost of regular registration for $55 per camper until Sept. 16, 2021. After that date, the price will go up to $70. Have your Pathfinder Club director register your club and purchase the tickets now to save money.
We are planning a dynamic worship experience that all five of our conferences can take a part in, from singing to drama presentation, to sermonettes by Pathfinders! Also, many honors are being planned and placed in the program. There will also be special event activities, such as horseback riding, a huge obstacle course and so much more that you will not want to miss.
What should you bring to camporee? You know you must bring a tent, and you can’t put up the tent unless you bring yourself! We want your club to register right away. The first 500 Pathfinders who register will receive a free pin.
Please note that we are following the local and CDC healthcare guidelines for the state of Texas. We are planning a state-of-the-art nurse station. We believe in keeping our children safe and healthy, and we are doing everything to be as safe as possible.
Get ready, get ready, get ready for the It’s My Time Camporee! Register today—I hope to see all of our Pathfinders very soon to worship and learn together!
