Forest Adventures

Forest Adventures is the program village where the Scouts use the forest for all kinds of fun projects. Amongst other things we will make fires and cook meals over open fire. Build tree houses,  hammocks and high towers. Go on a treasure hunt and plant trees to offset carbon for the travels to the jamboree. There will be something for everybody in Kjarnaskógur-forest.
