European International Scout Camps 2018

European International Scout Camps 2018

Most of you will only just have returned from your annual Summer Camp. Many will be in the middle of sorting out hundreds, if not thousands, of pictures capturing the different activities of their camp.

Looking at all these images and passing in review the many memorable moments you may already start thinking of where your group’s next Summer Camp could be organised. Shall it be a section camp? Or maybe a joint camp with other groups of your district? Or is it perhaps time to consider participating in an international camp (at home or abroad), commonly known as jamboree?

Based on information made available to us so far, we have put together a short list of national jamborees organised during the summer of 2018 in Europe. Maybe one of these international camps is exactly what you were looking for? One of the camps listed here (number 3) is Roverway 2018, the main activity for the senior action of Scout and Guide Associations in the European Regions’ of WOSM and WAGGGS, which will be hosted in the Netherlands next year. It is listed here for the record only, as most of the national contingents will have closed their booking lists by now.

We will be updating this list later during the autumn and invite all National Scout Organisations and National Scout Associations in Europe to signal us should their major event not yet be listed.
