Ilves 13 – The five star scout camp

Ilves 13 – The Movie is traditional Finnish scout camp with a twist. More than 4000 Finnish and foreign Guides and Scouts are expected. All foreign scouts and guides 12-years of age or older are warmly welcome to join us for the best camp of the year.

All foreign scout guide and scout groups will have Finnish host groups and together they will form a camp troop of about 30-100 campers.

During the camp we live in four subcamps which are named after famous film studios. The program is also based in movie making. We have already started. There are six candidates for a leading part in the film, which is about saving the scout movement. During this summer troops can take part in competition and make their own movies (max 2 minutes). The best movie wins the best camping site in the area.
The Premier of the ‘Ilves the movie’ and the glamorous Gala night are the main program events during the camp. In addition to those there are four program valleys where one spends a day in each of them. The valley themes are based on different movie categories as you can guess. It might be that you will be part of a horror movie if you get lucky.

During the camp guides and scouts and some of the leaders will participate in the camp program. Foreign guides and scouts 15-years and older will also have the possibility to participate in arranging the program alongside the Finnish scout leaders and rovers.

The camp start 25th of July and ends 2nd of August 2013. The cub scouts camp ends 28th July.
Before the actual camp there is a voluntary three days construction camp for scouts over 18 years old. After the camp there are a few days reserved for pulling down the camp, joining is voluntary.

Camp fee is 195 € / person including food, program and camping in your own tents during the camp. Registration opens in November.
