National Scout Camp Stavanger 2013

Stavanger 2013, was The Norway’s Scout Association national camp in 2013. During the camp’s motto “quite impressive” close o 10 000 scouts from 33 nations gathered for a weeklong community in the fields of Hafrsfjord.

The camp site was about 15 minutes away from Stavanger. The area is best known for the Battle of Hafrsfjord where Harald defeated a number of petty kings and marked the union of Norway in 872. The famous monument “Swords in Rock” is close to where the camp was located.

It has been 20 years since last time I attended a national scout camp, at that time in Eidskog. Much has happened since then. Now it was waterflushed toilets and wireless networks in the camp, but much was also as it used to be. A national scout camp gathers children, adolescents and adults for exciting and challenging scouting activities.

At this year’s camp, I was with the staff as radio scout. We were responsible for the camp’s amateur radio station, LA1SS and the evening activity with electronics building where we built morse code blinkers.

Below I have collected some pictures I took during the camp week.
