IST

Are you looking for the adenture of a lifetime? Being IST is a special experience for every scout and guide. Travelling abroad and experiencing a camp in a foreign country means that you learn new things, explore different cultures, get to see and participate in new activities and meet new people from different worlds.
The Icelandic IST offers a unique experience to get to know people and make new friends because the group is smaller, and therefore closer, than at many other international camps.
The fee and registration deadline for IST will be announced soon.

Location

Hamrar Scout Center

Hamrar Scout Centre is a beautiful campsite located in the northen part of Iceland. It’s a peaceful and friendly place surrounded by the forest Kjarnaskógur on the outskirts of Akureyri, capital of the north. The campsite is well equipped with excellent facilities, playgrounds and great hiking trails. The area has amazing opportunities for all kinds of activites, which is why it’s perfect for the Icelandic national Scout Jamboree. Many successful Jamborees have been held there before, and we’re excited to spend a week there together in a society that we’ll create for ourselves.
