Collegedale Pathfinders Raise Oshkosh Funds with Puzzle

The Collegedale Church Pathfinder club in Tenn., like many clubs across the country and around the world, is looking forward to traveling to Oshkosh Wisconsin next August for the International Pathfinder Camporee.


Like many others, the Collegedale club is concerned with the extra costs to send their kids and families. As a result, they have been fundraising ideas but haven’t found that unique and special one until now. A couple of team leaders recently  developed a Limited Edition “Forever Faithful” puzzle. The club has already sent editions to Maryland, Indiana, Virginia, Washington, California, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky and other places around the country.


This premium 1,000 piece puzzle was developed with other clubs in mind as well. Enough of these puzzles have been manufactured so that other clubs can utilize it as their main or secondary fundraiser. If you would like to use this as a fundraising opportunity for your conference or club, please contact Bill Tracy at:


By purchasing this specially designed collectable puzzle, you will help support your Pathfinders.

"The cost to send a Pathfinder to Oshkosh can range from $400-$600 per child," says Fernando Verduzco, children's/junior youth ministries director. "Thanks for your support in helping send Pathfinders to this once in a lifetime event." 


Forever Faithful is the theme for the 2014 International Pathfinder Camporee that takes place in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, August 11-16, 2014. They expect over 36,000 Pathfinders from over 60 countries and say that is it the largest six-day Adventist Youth World Event.
