ORGANISE YOUR TRIP
BECOME A PART OF IT
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).
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.
