A New Exciting Honor is Coming with a Game App!

Hell and Mr. Fudge

Hell and Mr. Fudge is the warm, thoughtful and sometimes humorous story of the trials and tribulations of evangelical scholar Edward Fudge as he confronts the doctrine of Eternal Torment and shakes up his own core beliefs. Honored with a platinum award at the Houston International Film Festival, Hell and Mr. Fudge has been endorsed by top Adventist administrators who have encouraged its wide distribution. “This is a powerful evangelistic tool,” says Pastor Mark Finley, special assistant for evangelism to world church president Ted N. C. Wilson. (120 minutes for the movie & interaction)

The Conscientious Objector

The story... Infantrymen who once ridiculed and scoffed at Desmond's simple faith and refusal to carry a weapon - now owed their lives to him. Director Terry Benedict tells Desmond's incredible story through the eyes of the men who witnessed this humble man's heroic acts. Winning the respect of his fellow soldiers, they recommended him for the highest honor America can bestow on one of her sons - The Medal of Honor. "The Conscientious Objector" is an inspiring film for all Americans to see! (101 minutes long)

Secret of the Cave

A young American boy, Roy Wallace knows that his dad is Irish yet never thought he would be spending his precious summer vacation in a tiny fishing village in Ireland. He feels a long way from home but before long, unexplainable events begin to occur and murmurs of ghosts sweep through the village. Determined to solve the mystery and disprove the superstition of the villagers, Roy takes on the case. When all signs point towards the sea cave, Roy faces his fears and discovers the "Secret of the Cave". (88 minutes long)

Ring the Bell

Slick, big city sports agent Rob Decker has it all. But on his latest mission to sign a high school baseball superstar, Rob becomes stranded in a small town where the simplicity of life--and the faith of the people--stands in stark contrast to his own fast-paced, win-at-all-costs mindset. Torn between these two worlds, will Rob have the courage to let faith transform his life?

"Ring the Bell" features Christian music artists Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Matthew West, along with baseball legends Rick Sutcliffe, John Kruk, and Ben Zobrist. This heartwarming story of redemption will entertain and inspire the whole family. (96 minutes long)

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!

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.
