Recently, the youth director of the Atlantic Caribbean Union Mission (ACUM), Pastor Andrew Burrows, camped out with the pathfinders and young people of the North Bahamas Conference (NBC) at the old missile base in East Grand Bahama, The Bahamas.
In his brief remarks during the camp’s opening ceremony, Pastor Burrows reminded the campers and staff that young people are important and have a significant place in the life of the Adventist church. He challenged each camper to make the camping experience a time to know Christ and grow both spiritually and socially. Pastor Burrows also announced that the youth department is planning a union camporee to be held in the summer of 2013.
Mr. Marcus Cooper, a youth minister and the local government representative for the nearby Freetown community, brought brief remarks and pronounced the camp officially open.
In keeping with the overall philosophy of pathfinders, the campers participated in a community service project at the local Freetown Primary and East Pre-School.

Expressing appreciation for this service, Ms. Sandra Bullard, acting principal, commented that “the Pathfinders have been a God send,” noting that they came at the right time to assist with the much needed painting of buildings and manicuring of the school’s lawn.

Pastor Burrows commended Pastor Ricardo Bain, youth director of the North Bahamas Conference, and the entire camp staff for their hard work and dedication.
The North Bahamas Conference is one of four fields within the ACUM region that will be holding summer camps this year. Their theme for the week was “Impacting Youth 4 Christ.”
