All activities, as well as the overnight hike, will be done in patrols. When you sign up for the camp, in January 2017, the patrols will choose what activities they would like to do, and which hike they would like to take part in.
At Nord 2017 there will be familiar camp activities, but also something different. In addition to day activities, there will be midnight activities in the midnight sun! All scouts will be able to take part in one midnight activity, with time to rest the following day.
One of the days at the jamboree will be a market day, where each group organises an activity or performance which they notify the jamboree about in advance. Be creative, there will be prizes for the best contributions. The scouts will be given «camp money» which they can use to take part in the market day activities.
The patrols will be able to choose between four different difficulty levels. All the hikes will be overnight hikes which will give the patrols the opportunity to experience the nature of the north of Norway. Some will be close to camp, while others will be within an hour’s driving distance. If your scouting association has special rules regarding hikes (for example maximum altitudes), please contact us so we can plan a suitable route for you.
Culture in the square
At the square in the middle of the jamboree there will be cafes, shops, drop-in activities as well as a small stage with big and small events and entertainment. Maybe someone would like to get up on stage?
And a lot more…
More information about activities will follow. The programme team can among others things promise a patrol leader gathering, a crazy obstacle course and high ropes park, and opportunities to get acquainted with rainbow scouting (queer scouting).
