Camporee officially closed

The Australian Pathfinder Camporee in Toowoomba reached a spectacular conclusion on Saturday night.
The camporee-long drama production climaxed with the return of the Ark of the Covenant to the temple under the leadership of the boy king Josiah.
In the Bible story, this was followed by the celebration of the Passover and Rabbi Hirsch presnted the significance of the elements of the Passover celebration.
After the conclusion of the dramatic story, the program transformed into a closing ceremony and the camporee flag was lowered.
Pastor Tony Knight paid tribute to the camporee staff and the resilience of the camporee participants.
And the camporee concluded with a fireworks display over the Toowoomba showgrounds, accompanied by the "Hallelujah Chorus."
