NEW YORK—May 28, 2010— On the Friday of Memorial Day weekend 2010, the South Brooklyn Cougars, Hanson Place Constellations, and Shiloh Chrysolites were on their way to Alpine Scout Camp. South Brooklyn provided twelve Pathfinders and one parent. There was a total of fifty Pathfinders and staff on this outing.

On Sabbath morning, Hanson Place then led out in a wonderful devotion where animated discussions took place among four groups about peer pressure, dating, role models, respect, etc. The Junior Pathfinders worked on the honor worms (this involved finding worms and racing them). Meanwhile, the senior Pathfinders worked on the honor orienteering where they used compasses to locate hidden balloons filled with candy. Among other activities, each class (Friend through Ranger) worked on their camping skills. They focussed on how to preserve the outdoors so others could enjoy it and how to survive in the outdoors. The campers spent a few days bonding, enjoying nature, having fun, and developing their skills as Pathfinders.

South Brooklyn Seventh-day Adventist Church is a family-oriented, salvation-minded church that loves to talk about Jesus, as well as spend time with our members, friends, and visitors in fellowship and good times. South Brooklyn is led by Pastor Dr. John W. Jones, an ordained minister in the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and he is supported by a Board of Elders, Clerks, and church officers who love Jesus Christ and have committed their time, treasures, and talents to God’s service.
