Get Ready For the 'Relentless' Camporee

In less than two months, Pathfinders from across the Columbia Union Conference will gather at Summit Bechtel Reserve (SBR) in Glen Jean, W.Va., for the 'Relentless' Columbia Union Camporee. 

This week several of the planning committee members and event staff visited the grounds again to make final preparations for the event with more than 2,000 registered participants. Frank Bondurant, camporee planning chair and the union’s vice president for ministries development, urges attending clubs to also start preparing for the big event, by doing the following now: 

  • Complete the liability and medical waiver, and have it ready to turn in upon arrival to SBR 
  • Firm up their transportation plans 
  • Make sure they have food trailers to store all food 
  • Regularly check the website for the recent newsletters and updates 
  • Plan on attending one of the two informational Zoom meetings: July 13 or 17 at 7:30 p.m.
