Golf carts must be driven by adults 18+ who hold a valid driver’s license.

Shocking Statistics


"Today, one quarter of all U.S. teenagers have diabetes or pre-diabetes. That's an astronomical and almost unbelievable 40 percent increase over the percentage of teenagers diagnosed with diabetes in 1999 (9 percent).  After decades of creeping obesity among American young people (a third of them--34 percent--are currently overweight or obese), deadly concoctions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and cardiovascular diseas are toxic cherries on the top of this poisonous diabetes sundae." (Source: Group Magazine, July/August 2012)

At the FFICamporee we will offer many healthy exercise options. Watch the newsletter for more details. Daniel 1:8

Artist Helps Fundraise for Pathfinders


An article published in the Southwestern Union Record magazine has highlighted the efforts of an artist who paints pictures of Pathfinders.

The artist, Arthur Pletcher, has made a website where he sells prints of his paintings. The person buying the painting can then specify which department he would like to help and that department will receive 50% of the cost of the picture.
