“A record 35,000 young people, mostly Seventh-day Adventists, from 12 nations gathered in Barretos, in the Brazilian state of São Paulo from January 7 through 12 for the Fourth South American Pathfinder Camporee, a gathering of young people that promotes Christian living and community service.

The Governor of the State of São Paulo, Geraldo Alckmin formally welcomed the participants, who came from nations in South America, North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.

The thousand-club Pathfinders Camporee is one of the largest global projects for spiritual, social and educational support for children and youth. Throughout the year, about 150,000 children and adolescents between 10 and 15 years, meet on Saturdays and Sundays to learn dozens of skills, ranging from how to give first aid to someone injured or how survive in the wilderness and care for the environment.

The city received 850 busses carrying participants predominantly from the Americas, but some also having first traveled from Asia and Europe. An estimated 800 dining areas were designated to feed the attendees

The Camporee also boasted a museum displaying the history of Pathfinders, a shopping mall, a supermarket, bakery, snack bar, police and fire outposts and at least 500 people in charge of security and internal transit. …”
