Nathaniel Hoskins, a Pathfinder club member from Deer Park, Washington, hands a campus map to campers as they arrive at the Upper Columbia Conference Camp Meeting.

SPANGLE, Wash., June 14, 2012 - Pathfinder club members, Nathaniel Hoskins and Rachelle Santee, spent the afternoon today greeting campers as they arrived at the Upper Columbia Conference Camp Meeting in Spangle, Washington.  

After helping new arrivals locate their camping spot on a map of the campus, the youth offered to pray for them, asking God to bless their stay and that they would be inspired and encouraged by messages they hear in the coming weekend's meetings.

"Wednesday was pretty busy," said Hoskins, since it was the first day of camp meeting, "but I imagine it will get really busy on Friday afternoon when people start to get off work."

In addition to serving as greeters and praying for the weekend's activities, Pathfinders from area clubs have also been assisting campers with luggage in the dorms and helping them find their way around campus.

The Pathfinders will also be involved with camp meeting when they march on stage to post the flags before the 11:00 a.m. worship service this coming Sabbath.  

It is not too late to enjoy the color and the inspiration at camp meeting.  Several new RV and tent spots have been added to accommodate more campers, so call today to reserve a spot for the weekend, or just drive in on Sabbath morning.  There are plenty of seats in the big tent.
