And here's everything you would wish to know about camping in Denmark.

Camping in Denmark

Most camps in Denmark are held in open fields. We live in tents and only seldom have real buildings. Everything from supermarkets to hospitals is normally in tents, even at huge jamborees. We build whole 'towns' of tents.

When arriving at your campsite, you will most likely be asked to put up your own tent, with the assistance of your host group. You will live in this tent all week. Some groups sleep in small nylon tents; other groups have large cotton tents. All tents are, however, well suited for the Danish summer weather, which can be rather changeable: we can have everything from extreme sun to cold and rainy weather.

You should therefore make sure to bring enough warm clothes to be able to stay outside in all kinds of weather.

At camp, we normally spend the first day building the campsite. Normally tents are pitched first; then we start constructing tables - both a kitchen table and a dining table - of wooden poles that are tied together with ropes. We also dig holes for wastewater and campfires and put up small fences around the campsites of our individual units. Moreover, we usually construct entrances and put up a flagpole.

Danish guides and scouts usually cook on open fires. Most likely everybody will be involved in cooking the meals.

At night, it is common to have a campfire. Sometimes units have their own camp fires at their own campgrounds, other evenings there will be large gatherings for all participants.

For all fires, whether cooking fires or camp fires, it is necessary for the individual units to chop their own firewood. Large pieces of wood will be available at the jamboree site.
