Visiting Finland

Are you planning a trip to Finland? It is a great choice, you are warmly welcome! In Finland you can enjoy beautiful nature and meet friendly local Guides and Scouts.

You can participate in a real Finnish Guide/Scout camp and explore the culture that way. Check out our upcoming events here and decide which one is your piece of pie.

The biggest of the upcoming events is Kajo, the Finnjamboree of July 2022. Finnjamborees are the largest scout camps in Finland, and Kajo is expected to gather together up to 18 000 scouts from Finland and all over the world. The eight days of Kajo, from July 15th to 23rd, will be filled not only with excellent program, but also laughter, singing, scouting, friends, and, hopefully, sunshine. Read more about Kajo and how to join on the official website.

If you want to meet Guides and Scouts when you are visiting in Finland, you can look for Guide and Scout contacts on the Facebook group Guides and Scouts visiting Finland. In the group you can find pen pals, a group to join during your exchange semester in Finland or a local group willing to have international guests in its camp.
