From 6-11 January Toowoomba is hosting the biggest Adventist Church kids’ event ever held on Australian soil.

The iThirst Pathfinder Camporee will bring 7000 10-15 year old children and 2000 of their leaders from Australia, New Zealand and our nearest neighbours in the South Pacific region.

A Pathfinder event encompassing all these countries has only been held once before.

Pathfinders, which operates in a similar way to Scouts, is a worldwide outdoor education, hands-on activities and spiritual discipleship program for both boys and girls and is run by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

“In every Pathfinder’s life, you must attend at least one big camporee,” said Pastor Nick Kross, Adventist Youth director for the South Pacific region.

“Camporees are an amazing memory event for every Pathfinder and the iThirst camporee is going to have the most amazing activities you’ve ever seen.”

“There’s going to be great music—we’re going to worship,” said Litiana Turner, associate director for Adventist Youth. “We’re going to meet Jesus—it’s the place to be!”

The six-day event will be held at the Toowoomba Showgrounds after an unexpected level of interest saw registrations surpass the capacity of the previous venue on NSW’s mid-north coast.

Organisers have been in contact with Toowoomba’s local hospital, emergency services and shopping centres, to brief them on the situation.
