Funeral Ministry Idea


Pathfinders can work with their pastor and/or funeral meal coordinator to provide a meal for family members and their close friends after a memorial service/funeral.The Pathfinders could also carry plates for the elderly and small children and make sure their drinks are kept full. After the meals Pathfinders can help with clean-up and pray with people. For more information, please contact Donald Gwinn.

Did you know? There is a chaplain ministry team provided to give comfort to anyone who experiences the loss of a friend or family member during the camporee. Gary Thurber, President of the Rocky Mountain Conference, is the Chaplain Coordinator. 

Fun Fact About Wisconsin!


"People think of Minnesota as the land of 10,000 lakes, but we're the only state in the union surrounded by two Great Lakes [Lake Michigan and Lake Superior], the Mississippi River and we have 15,000 inland lakes." -Governor Scott Walker, Wisconsin


Pathfinders and Exercise


The 2014 FFICamporee has many plans to offer exercise, so come with comfortable walking shoes! 

Each morning the NAD Health Ministries Department will offer a 5K walk/run. Keep watching for more information!

The book of Daniel, written for people living in the end of times, offers inspiration for youth to choose healthy lifestyles.

The FFICamporee would like to thank the NAD Health Ministries Department for their support of Pathfinders.
