Scouting style fun park in Finnish forests
Kajo was a huge tent village, the size of a small city actually, that was raised near the city of Hämeenlinna in Finland. There were multiple cafes, saunas, games, pharmacy, camp hospital and even a self-made ferris wheel in the middle of the forest.
Program valleys were primarily meant for 12-17-year-olds and they included fun activities under 6 different themes: Peace, Future, Action, Battle, Life and Heureka.

Volunteering at its best
Guiding and Scouting in Finland is run by volunteers and Kajo was no exception. Volunteer tasks varied from group leader roles to dealing food, organising activities, providing first aid, hosting sing-along nights, cleaning toilets, streaming live shows and everything in between. Scouting as an adult is not only work – it’s heaps of fun too!
Hundreds of volunteers worked for multiple days, or even weeks, before the camp to build all the infrastructure. After an incredible week of scouting volunteers also stayed behind to take down the camp and clean the area.
Huge thank you belongs to each and everyone who made this camp happen!
