On January 26, 2021, the 2024 International Camporee Executive Advisory Committee took a vote that will impact Pathfinders around the world. This vote approved two items: a change of location for the 2024 “Believe the Promise” International Pathfinder Camporee from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, to Gillette, Wyoming, in the United States, and a change of dates to August 5-11, 2024.

As members of the advisory committee, we realize that this is an important decision that will affect Pathfinders from around the world, so we share with you the process of making this decision after countless hours of research, planning, site visits, and prayer.

In 2019, we had more than 55,000 participants from 105 countries from around the globe at the Chosen International Camporee, and 1,320 souls were baptized. God has truly blessed the camporee beyond what we could have ever imagined.

As the International Camporee has grown, so has our desire to make each camporee experience better than the last. For months, evaluation teams have visited the CAM-PLEX Multi-Event Facilities in Gillette, Wyoming, to determine if this new site offers more support for the International Camporee. After numerous site visits, committee votes, and meetings, and with the final vote of the executive committee, we are excited about the move. We are confident that this decision will significantly improve the International Camporee experience for all attendees.

The CAM-PLEX facilities regularly host large events that include camping and on-site activities much like our camporee. The complex boasts the largest campground of full amenities in the world. Get ready for double the indoor activity space, more camping space, and more than 25 new additional activities unique to the West. New experiences are just around the corner! You will not believe how much Wyoming has to offer.

We are very excited about the new opportunities that this new location will give us and will be answering your questions on February 2, at 1:00 p.m. EST via Facebook Live on the International Camporee Facebook page.

See you in Gillette!
