Olympics-inspired Pathfinder Skilloree sees record turnout

  • News

The annual event was held on April 7 at New Hope Church.

Over 500 attendees from 23 Pathfinder Clubs participated in the Chesapeake Conference’s Skilloree on April 7 at New Hope Church in Fulton, Md., marking a new turnout record for the conference. 

This year’s event was inspired by the Olympic Games in Paris this summer. Pathfinders participated in a wide range of athletic events, including sprints, relays, hurdle dashes, shot put, and the standing broad jump. 

Clubs also sold food to raise money for the Pathfinder International Camporee taking place in Gillette, Wyo., from Aug. 5-11.

“The Skilloree is such a fun event that challenges our Pathfinders physically and mentally,” said Kenia Reyes de Leon, Youth and Young Adult Ministries director for Chesapeake Conference. “They push themselves hard, and they also put their strategizing skills to the test… A huge purpose for these events is to allow Pathfinders to create lifelong bonds with other Pathfinders their age, which only strengthens their relationship with the Church and with God.”
