With participants from 10+ countries and programme already organised for you!


With great tradition the camps takes place over the Whitsun Weekend, 7 weeks after Easter.


Each year another campsite is carefully chosen by the organisation team.


For scouts between 11 and 16 years from all associations recognised by WOSM or WAGGGS.


Each troop has to organise its own traveling and provisions.


The INTERCAMP charges € 25 p.p. (with € 5 early bird discount) for the programme and infrastructure.


The general aim of the Intercamp is the development of international goodwill and friendship through a weekend scout camp and carrying out a programme guide by the scouting principles supporting team-work and sympathy. Therefore each organizing scout association will produce a programme on a more specific theme.

Each of the participating scout associations can organise the camp and act as host nation. The host nation provides a suitable campsite and its infrastructure, including finances, catering arrangements for a service team, and arranges a attractive scout programme which is approved by the Intercamp committee. National and local distinctions should be considered to ensure new impressions in every camp.

Join with your troop

The annual international scout camp is usually restricted to between 2.000 and 3.000 participants, from all over Europa. Currently Scouts from eight nations are part of the Intercamp Committee:
America (BSA), Belgium (GSB), Great Britain (BSWE), The Netherlands (SN), France (SGdF), Germany (RdP), Czech Republic (JUNAK), and Poland (ZHP).

Besides those “member countries” of the Intercamp committee scouts from all other countries or associations are invited as guests, as long as they are part of a WOSM or WAGGGS.

The camp is held each year over the Whitsun weekend from Friday until Monday. Each year, a different nation is responsible for the hosting and organisation of the camp.

In 1966 “Rheindahlen District”, a part of British Scouts Western Europe, organised the “Rheindahlen District Scout Camp” on the airfield at Wegberg Hospital, near to Mönchengladbach. A local German scout troop (DPSG Rabenhorst, Mönchengladbach) and a Dutch scout troop (Scouting Nederland Wellerlooi) were invited to participate in the camp. This camp was a great success and friendships were formed.

The following year, Piet Deckers († 2015) from Wellerloi and Fred Wurm († 2014) from Mönchengladbach agreed to organise a reciprocal camp. The first Intercamp as such, which as already named Intercamp, took place at Wellerlooi in the Netherlands on the Whitsun weekend 1967. From this beginning, the idea of an annual International Scout camp over Whitsun weekend has been nurtured and has grown into the current cult status of Intercamp.
