About Pilot International and the Texas Camp Foundation

Pilot International

Pilot InternationalPilot International was founded by 40 local business women and chartered on October 18, 1921 in Macon, Georgia as the former ‘Pilot Club International’. The founders had envisioned an international organization with the mission to serve humanitarian efforts through charitable, educational and research programs in communities throughout the world.

The name ‘Pilot’ was inspired by the mighty riverboat pilots of the day who represented leadership and guidance. The Pilot Principles are friendship and service and our motto is “True Course Ever”. Our emblem is a a riverboat pilot’s wheel with eight spokes, and the colors green representing life and vigor, and gold standing for the sincerity of purpose.
