Update on NCC Pathfinder Camporee
This year’s camporee is being held at the Redwood Area Camp, 2437 Dyerville Loop Road, Redcrest, CA 95569. We will be leaving the church/school at 8 am on Thursday, October 1. Please have all your things here and ready to load by 8 am. You need to pack your Class A Uniform and your T-shirt field uniform. Camporee is a fun time when all the Northern California clubs get together for a time of games, honors, worship programs, community service, and friendship. We will return to the church/school at 5 pm on Sunday, October 4. You must have all your paperwork filled out for Pathfinders (membership application, health record, permission slips) and your fees paid to attend. We need to know by this Thursday, September 24, if you are going or not. We cannot add on last minute attendees because we have to plan for transportation, sleeping accommodations and food.

This Week's Club Meeting
We are going to prepare for Camporee and Induction.We will practice drilling and marching so that we look like we know what we’re doing at the Camporee parade. We will learn and practice some basic camping skills and get a list of what to pack for Camporee. We will have a quick run through of the Induction program so everyone knows their part for Saturday night.

Below is the Pathfinder calendar for the year. Please check back often to get the latest information.
