Ohio Pathfinders Hold Virtual Camporee
Story by Edward Marton
More than 300 Ohio Conference Pathfinders across the state recently joined together from their homes for the conference’s first ever virtual camporee.
Presenting on the theme, “Stand True,” Todd Casey, Pennsylvania Conference’s youth director, focused on the life of Barnabas in the early church. Pathfinders learned that part of standing true is encouraging and supporting one another.
Later, the Pathfinders had the opportunity to earn three honors: tole painting, card making and coral reef. Volunteers, including area Pathfinder coordinators Karen Johnson and Jeni Kessler (pictured), packed and shipped supplies for the honor classes ahead of the camporee so each family could complete them remotely. The Pathfinders also got the opportunity to participate in a virtual escape room, based on the life of Barnabas. This activity helped them discover how to be a disciple of Jesus today by standing true for their Savior.
