New Homeland

Every summer since 1914, Camp Pathfinder, located on a small island in the Canadian wilderness, invites a community of boys to spend a few weeks in the backcountry learning how to camp, hike, canoe and fish.  Two years ago, Camp Director Mike Sladden, enraged by the tragic images from the growing global refugee crisis but inspired by Canada’s growing intake of asylum seekers, had an idea.  What if he could bring a group of displaced boys from war-torn Syria and Iraq to spend the summer at Pathfinder?  If the camp experience had such a profound effect on generations of boys already, imagine what it would be like for these refugee boys.
