Intercamp 2020 cancelled!

In light of the unprecedented uncertainty surrounding coronavirus, a decision has been made to cancel Intercamp 2020. We find it important to be able to ensure the safety of the children participating at Intercamp. But given these uncertainties we can not sufficiently guarantee the safety, within the boundaries of a regular scouting event. The decision had been made with a “heavy heart” in a joint meeting between the UK organizing team and the Intercamp committee. We are assessing the financial implications and will get back to you with more details on this shortly.
