Estonian National Jamboree 2017 WHEEL OF ADVENTURE
In the summer of 2017, somewhere in the north-eastern part of Europe, at the place where north, south, east and west meet, a jamboree will take place. The Estonian National Jamboree! Come and be a part of it! As we Estonians say: friendship and adventure – this is scouting. This is our lifestyle and what else is scouting, if not a grand WHEEL OF ADVENTURE or in Estonian – SEIKLUSRATAS! The camp will take place in our camp site which is as if straight out of a fairy tale. The camp site is situated in an ancient forest and in the middle of it is a hunting lodge. This is where our scouting traditions and the cleverness inherent in Estonians come together. Modern day and history. The forest and the castle. Brain and brawn. Spirit and the practical. It will be a special experience for over a thousand scouts and guides from all over the world.
PLACE: Tagametsa Hunting Lodge and Camping Center (ca 120 km from Tallinn, in Google Maps “Tagametsa jahiloss, Türi vald”).
ACTIVITIES: During the eight days of camp, different activities will take place ranging from the traditional to brand new. Every day of activity has its own name – safety day, opinion day, health day, good deed day, extreme day and nature day. Every day has its own leader who coordinates the activities. Exciting moments are offered by, for example, a Rambo trail and paintball. But this is not all – there is nothing like an opinion festival or laugh therapy or forest yoga to get the heart beating faster. Everyone will find something that they will absolutely adore from the program. As is tradition, there will be many campfires – the opening ceremony, the central great fire and the closing ceremony will all have a grand fire to warm up our souls. There are even 2 separate disco parties where one can dance like crazy. And what would be a camp without a hike? There will be hikes of different lengths ranging from 4 hours to 48 hours.
