CANCELED: Greater New York Conference Pathfinder Camporee due to Swine Flu

This year's Greater New York Conference Pathfinder Camporee has been cancelled due to an increase of confirmed swine flu cases and flu-like symptoms in the New York metropolitan area. The camporee was supposed to start this Friday and continue through Memorial Day weekend. Somewhere between 1,300-1,500 Pathfinders and Master Guides were expected to attend, so you can imagine what the scenario may have looked like had there been a case of swine flu on site!

Pathfinders is a coed youth organization sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church with local clubs around the world. At camporees, Pathfinder clubs belonging to a certain region get together to camp out and do several different events and activities.
