A highlight of every Camporee, the programming that happens each evening on the main stage is life changing. Hear great music from your fellow Pathfinders, sing along with the theme song, and watch the Biblical story of David played out on stage.
This page is your go-to for information about anything that happens on the main stage but be sure to check the monthly Newsletter, as it may have even more current information.
The Bible Story of David
The focused theme for the 2019 International Camporee is based on the incredible Biblical character of David, and how he was "Chosen" by God. We will be producing a 30-40 minute dramatic production covering the life span of David, which will be tied into the messages presented by the our guest speaker each evening.
All the actors are selected for the 2019 Pathfinder Camporee. Please keep them in prayer as they prepare to share the story of David with us.

Master Guide Investiture
Dr. Andrés Peralta, GC Pathfinder Director is conducting the investiture program Sabbath morning August 17, 2019 during the worship service.
Prayer was so important to David and he spent much time in prayer talking to God about his fears, challenges, mistakes, and for God's guidance.
At the Chosen Camporee, we want prayer to be a cornerstone for all that happens there. Friendships nurtured, growth opportunities encountered, knowledge acquired, requests on our hearts, and spiritual decisions made will only be enhanced if they are bathed in prayer.
