Welcome on summer camp in Kalmar!

Application Scout group

The final submission for participating in Vasalägret 2020 will open March 1st and close April 26. The camp committee chose to open the final submission later than planned to make sure all the scout groups will have plenty of time to collect the submissions from the scouts during the submission period.
The reason for this decision is that the camp has recieved more submissions of interest than we will be able to accommondate. Scout groups from Dacke scout district will be prioritized if they send their final submission before April 26. After that date, Dacke will not have priority. International scout groups will also be prioritized.
We do not accept any final submissions before March 1st.

Campsite

The camp site of Vasalägret 2020 will be at Stensö, which is located in southern Kalmar.
1989 was the last Scout camp at this place and was then Sweden’s largest Scout camp with both Swedish and foreign scouts.

About Stensö

Stensö is one of Kalmar’s most visited recreation areas. In the northern part of Stensö there is a campsite, a larger swimming area and miniature golf courses.
The area has been used as pasture for several hundred years. When the bait was more extensive, the peninsula had a more open character, with sparse oak forest and dry meadows with a shrub. Nowadays, most of the Stensö is covered by forest, but a fårhage is found on the west side. The largest part of the Stensö is covered by oak forest, with birch and aspen.
