Chosen 2019

The Chosen International Camporee (CIC) is just around the corner and we can’t wait to see everyone in Oshkosh for this life-changing Pathfinder event.

Here are some updates regarding the 2019 Oshkosh Camporee:

1. Registration for CIC is definitely CLOSED and tickets are all sold out. Clubs in need of tickets are encouraged to check daily the Facebook page of the International Camporee for postings of people who are reselling their tickets. Better yet, contact club directors from other conferences directly and inquire if the have extra tickets. Go to www.camporee.org under NAD Registration Report and see listing of clubs per union and conference. Pray hard and don’t lose hope!

2. Volunteer Tickets – Email volunteer@camporee.org regarding your intentions to volunteer at camporee and commit 5-8 work hours daily. Specify you have not bought a General Admission ticket. Go to https://www.camporee.org/about/volunteers to see other steps to purchase volunteer tickets.

3. Insurance List – Please fill out the registration form (xlx) and provide all names and info of those who will go to Oshkosh. Deadline: April 30, 2019.

Adventurers, Pathfinders, Master Guide Trainees and their club staff, who paid their $4.50 insurance premium as part of their yearly club registration, do not need to pay insurance fee again to go to Oshkosh. But for the rest joining the trip to Oshkosh such as parents, siblings, and club volunteers, (regardless of age but no older than 80), they need to pay the abovementioned premium to be included in our group insurance.

4. Bus Reservation and Local Registration Fee. If a person occupies a bus seat, irrespective of age, then he/she has to pay $220 per person. If you plan to go with the conference bus for a one-way trip, you still have to pay the full fare. Payment of bus fare includes the $30 local registration fee.

For those driving their private vehicles or have chartered their own bus, a fee of $30 per person is to be paid as a being a part of the Ontario Pathfinder contingent to the Oshkosh Camporee. This fee will help defray the following camporee expenses:

  • Production of Ontario pins and t-shirts to be given to each registered Ontario camper
  • Rental of radios and golf carts + fuel (to be used to shuttle people with special needs)
  • Rental of a 53-ft truck and trailer (+ fuel) to transport conference equipment to and from Oshkosh
  • Construction of the Ontario camp entrance and repair of the 35-ft CN tower
  • Acquisition of new canopies
  • Sponsorship of the Soccer Tournament (Pathfinder World Cup), Chosen Amazing Race, and Geology Honour (CIC and the Ontario Conference are both sponsoring these said event).
  • Purchase of medical supplies for the First Aid station
  • Signage and campsite allocation supplies
  • And other administrative and miscellaneous items

Big thanks the Ontario Conference Administration for the huge subsidy they have given for the benefit of our Pathfinders. In addition, as part of the Ontario Conference Pathfinder organization, each one’s moral and financial support to all these initiatives will be highly appreciated and will surely contribute to the success of this upcoming international camporee.

5. Free Registration for Staff Children (Ages 8 and below). Children ages 8 and below are exempted from paying the $30 local registration fee (if family will travel on their own). However, they need to pay the $4.50 insurance premium (if not enrolled with a club), and if they travel on the conference bus, they need to pay the full bus fare of $220/person. A refund will be given to those who paid for their staff children previously.

6. Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS) – All club staff and volunteers (age 18 and older) should have their VSS done ASAP. No exception. VSS result certification should be no older than 3 years.

7. Hosting of International Guests – Is your club willing to host international guests by proving them food and tent accommodation at Oshkosh camporee? If so, please email Penny Lumayor, our OCPC Treasurer, at only_one_cent@hotmail.com and let her know how many guests you can host.
