Welcome to the Chesapeake Conference Invitational Pathfinder Camporee website. Here you will find important information that will help you prepare for the “Courageous” Pathfinder Camporee. We are excited that you are making plans to participate in this event. This camporee is not limited to the Pathfinder clubs in the Chesapeake Conference only, but we warmly welcome any Pathfinder club from any conference to join us.


The 2017 "Courageous" Pathfinder Camporee is an opportunity of a lifetime that you don't want to miss. The goal of the event is to create a spiritual, social, and educational environment for all, as we grow together in Christ and learn from the word of God what it means to be courageous pathfinders for Jesus in the 21st century. You will develop deep and meaningful friendships with fellow pathfinders, and at the same time strengthen your relationship with God.
