ABE 2019

The Adventurer Bible Experience

The Adventurer Bible Experence, ABE, is a brand-new concept which was launched at the British Union Adventurer Camporee in 2018.  It was such a runaway success with all the clubs that participated, that there was no question of not continuing with it!  And so the ABE was firmly cemented in the Pathfinder Calendar!

The concept is much the same as the PBE, but has been adjusted to allow for the younger ages of those participating.

What to Study:
The book of Luke chapters 1-12, New King James Version, NKJV. 
The accompanying commentary will NOT be tested for ABE.
