International Scout Camp at the Hessentag

The local catholic (DPSG) and interconfessional (BdP) Scout districts have joined forces for the Hessentag in Oberursel to hold an international Scout Camp.

83 members of the two organisations and their guests from Epinay in France and Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina are camped on a field that is located between the Marxstraße and the Altkönigsportplatz which is accessible from a path that goes between the Red Cross and Fire Brigade buildings, and from the Mühlenwanderweg.

Guests are welcome, and today the Scouts were offering workshops for the visiting children such as singing, cloth-dying (batik), tracking, pioneering and making twists.
