The 2019 Chosen International Pathfinder Camporee in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, brought together over 56,000 young people from throughout North America and 100 countries, making it one of the largest gatherings of the church. Among them were 581 Pathfinders from Rocky Mountain Conference.
Baptisms were one of the biggest features of this extraordinary event. Jamie Mira, a Pathfinder from Denver South Hispanic, was among the more than 1,300 baptized at the camporee. Jamie’s parents have been Pathfinder area coordinators for many years, and her older sister Betsy was one of RMC’s teen reps. Betsy was baptized at the previous International Pathfinder Camporee.
“Jamie has been like a granddaughter to us since she was born. She loves Papa Don so much, and he was honored to baptize her,” said Christine Register Hill, who is Papa Don Hill’s wife and co-Pathfinder director for RMC. “Also, one of the RMC Pathfinders was baptized by her grandfather, and many were baptized by their fathers,” she added.
