We are just weeks from the International Pathfinder Camporee! Nearly 10,000 Pathfinders and volunteers from the Southern Union are checking tents and buying last-minute supplies. Drill teams are practicing their drill routines, cooks are reviewing their recipes, and parents are driving their Pathfinders to club meetings. Almost everyone is focused on getting to Oshkosh. It is Oshkosh or bust!
It is exciting to see what Pathfinders are experiencing as they prepare for the Camporee. Julianna Lawson, director of the Pathfinder Decatur Defenders Club in Decatur, Alabama, says, “A chance encounter led to an awesome opportunity to raise funds for the Chosen Camporee.” This encounter enabled the club to turn trash into money! Read their story and see pictures on Facebook, Instagram @SouthernTidings and on Twitter @SUCTidings. Or, visit www.southerntidings.com/camporee where you will see a section dedicated to Camporee news.
Pathfinders going to Oshkosh and family and supporters who will be at home, will have a unique opportunity to follow the action on four platforms — Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and a special Pathfinder SouthernTidings.com.
