In 2004 TLT’s volunteered 3500 hours and this year we need even more help.

International Visa Denial Information

If your visa was denied or you cannot come to the Camporee for another reason: 

1.  Tell others in your church district.  See if another APPROVED by the Camporee already Club member would be able to buy your ticket and come in your place. 

2.  Tell your Division Youth Director.  There are Pathfinders and leaders in several countries still wishing to buy tickets (ones who have already been approved by CYE).  Once you arrange a payment method that works for both of you (at the original price), you will forward your e-ticket to the buyer.  If you do not have a form/letter from the Consulate, showing your Visa was denied, and showing your own ticket, you cannot request a refund.  Therefore, reselling your ticket may be best and faster for you. 

3.  If you have the documentation (ticket, Visa denial letter), you can mail the original copies (no scans or faxes accepted) to the Center for Youth Evangelism

CYE Address:

Center for Youth Evangelism
4145 E Campus Circle Dr.
Berrien Springs, MI 49104-1517 

Refunds will be considered after the Camporee, but only for documented Visa denials.

Hope Channel Giveaway

Hope Channel is going to be at the Osh Kosh camporee with some exciting things for your Pathfinders. Look for more information in the upcoming newsletters.

For now, here’s the first: We will be giving away two iPad minis, and here’s how your Pathfinders can enter to win one.   

To celebrate the fact that Hope Channel is the official television network of the Seventh-day Adventist Church with more than two dozen Hope Channel stations worldwide broadcasting in several languages, we will be offering 12 Hope Channel collectibles. Pathfinders who collect all 12 will entered into a drawing for one of two iPad minis.

But here’s the catch. There is only a limited quantity of each of the 12 collectibles.

Acquiring all 12 will require some serious planning, strategic trading, and a lot of patience.   

Don’t give up on that iPad mini so quickly, though. Here’s one way to get a jump start: Have parents complete this online form ( and Hope Channel will mail the Pathfinder one collectible to get started on the quest for an iPad mini even before the camporee begins!

Adventist Risk Management Insurance

Camporee Travel Accident Insurance Now Available!

As Pathfinder Clubs around the world make their travel plans for the 2014 Forever Faithful International Camporee in Oshkosh next summer it is critical to provide travel accident insurance for all Pathfinders and adults in your group.  Adventist Risk Management is pleased to announce special Camporee Travel Accident Insurance is now available for all Pathfinder groups at our website:

For 2014 there are two types of Travel Accident Insurance available depending on your Club’s country of residence:

United States Based Pathfinder Clubs:

Travel & Camporee – Travel accident coverage round-trip from your departure location to Oshkosh, Wisconsin with an addition of up to seven (7) added travel days for personal deviation in route.  This allows Clubs to include side trips/activities in addition to attending the Forever Faithful Camporee.  Cost: $4.55 per person.   Coverage includes:  $50,000 for accidental medical expense, subject to a $100 deductible.  Accidental dental expenses are $250 per tooth subject to a maximum of $500.  Accidental Death & Dismemberment benefits of $50,000.  Additional benefits may apply – See policy summary listed on the ARM website.

Camporee Only – Accident coverage from Monday, August 11th through Saturday, August 16, 2014 during the Camporee event only at the Oshkosh, Wisconsin site. 
Cost:  $2.33 per person.  Coverage includes:  $50,000 for accidental medical expense, subject to a $100 deductible.  Accidental dental expenses are $250 per tooth subject to a maximum of $500.  Accidental Death & Dismemberment benefits of $50,000.  Additional benefits may apply – See policy summary listed on the ARM website.

This insurance is underwritten by the ACE Insurance group with rates and coverage unchanged from the 2009 Courage to Stand International Camporee.  This insurance provides your Pathfinder Club with broader coverage than the standard accident insurance provided for Club activities by your Conference.

Internationally Based Pathfinder Clubs:
All Pathfinder Clubs located outside of the United States {including Canada and Bermuda} are unfortunately, not eligible to purchase the ACE travel accident insurance program. International Pathfinder Clubs should purchase ARM’s Short Term Travel Accident Insurance for all Pathfinders and adults traveling with your group.  Several coverage options are available to provide accidental medical/illness expense coverage, emergency evacuation/repatriation and other travel related expenses. Please see the ARM website for a full explanation of coverage options and costs.
