Club directors: Please count the number of Pathfinders that you have for each age group before you get to registration. These separate age groups will designate what wristband each attendee will receive.

3.  CHOIR
If you would like to sing in the Camporee choir, we will be taking the first 300 Pathfinders who line up by the ‘Choir’ sign at the front right side of the Main Stage, by the baptismal tanks at 2:00pm, Wednesday August 14, 2019. 

Rehearsals are the following times: Wednesday through Friday: 2:00pm-3:00pm, Sabbath: 8:45am.  If you are interested in being an instrumentalist, please contact Philip Byrd.
