Message from the Director
Greetings Fellow Pathfinder!

Over 2,000 Pathfinders have bought their registration tickets from around the world! We are selling tickets faster than we did for the 2014 International Camporee.

For everyone registered by Dec. 31, 2016 your special souvenir collector's pin will be mailed to you by April 20,2017. 

Also, everyone registered by Dec. 31, 2016 will receive a very cool private backstage tour. 
I cannot wait to see you in 2019, and it will not be long! Just make sure you get your registration tickets before the CICamporee sells out.

If I can do anything to support your attendance contact me or my staff at CYE (Center for Youth Evangelism) at our Andrews University SDA Theological Seminary (269) 471-8380. 

We Are Stronger Together!

Meet Gerardo Oudri, Nighttime Director
Gerardo Oudri grew up in Uruguay, South America, went to school in Argentina and the U.S. (recently he obtained a Doctoral degree in Ministry at Fuller Seminary). He has lived and worked in various contexts: his ministry began in Northern Argentina in 2000 and then continued in Canada in 2002. Until recently, he served as Youth Director for the Ontario Conference. 
Gerardo strongly believes that the youth are the PRESENT, not the future of the church. His passion is to make disciples of Jesus. He also believes that the church exists as a community “in Jesus” called to grow spiritually in discipleship and to fulfill the mission entrusted by Jesus of making disciples.  He considers his family (wife Paola and daughters Sofia and Fiorella) his first and most important congregation, where together they strive to experience true Christian community, discipleship and mission. To contact Gerardo email or CYE office (269) 471-8380
