Camp Copenhagen 2019


The dates for Camp Copenhagen are from Saturday, August 10th to Saturday, August 24th with arrivals and departures on the 10th and 24th respectively.


Participants will stay at a scout’s cottage like previous years. It is located 20 kilometers north of Copenhagen, in an area called Naerum. This means that shopping, cooking, dishwashing and keeping the place tidy will be part of the daily program (teamwork) in addition to the activities listed under “What?” All participants will sleep in the same dormitory, and the accommodation will be simple cottage style, however all appliances are available.


The camp accepts 20 foreign participants aged 21-25 (in August 2019).

We accept a maximum of two participants - preferably one of each gender - from each country. All communication is in English (mandatory), which is the official language of the camp. Good English skills are important!! Participants must not have taken part in more than one Rotary camp prior, and must be sponsored by a Rotary club in their own country. Health insurance, visa etc. are the entire responsibility of the participants.


You will organize and pay for your own travel arrangements to and from Copenhagen. We kindly ask you to consider arrival and departure times to be reasonable, meaning not between 12 am and 6 am. Please advise our travel coordinator Ms. Lone Ricks – info (at) about your travel arrangements. Lone can be helpful when you are planning your travel. During your stay, following will be provided:  Accommodation, necessary food, transport, and entrance fees. You must bring your own sleeping bag.
    Check out the facebook group Camp Copenhagen 2018 – Ask earlier participants for info etc.


The participation fee is only DKK 1500 (Danish Crowns) equivalent to 200 Euro, on your arrival. We recommended bringing about DKK 1000-1500 as allowance. 
Remember that the Danish currency is Danish Kroner.


The program of the camp focuses on two important features of Scandinavian society and tradition: Environment and Democracy.

As for environment, you will experience the Danish nature, and we will show you how we try to protect our environment.

Our democracy part will, further to political democracy, focus on democracy at work, and in education and on taking care of those in need.

We will arrange guided tours around Copenhagen with a “time travel” from the buildings raised in the 16th century and to now, with the Danish designed and sustainable low energy buildings focusing building requirements.

We will show and tell you a lot, hope for your involvement and inspiration. We also want you to tell us what is important to you in your own countries - That is what “The peoples’ day” is about.

A full day tour to the world known LEGOLAND is in the making and will be included in the program.

Visits to Danish cultural sights including the Little Mermaid, one or more castles, one of our amusement parks, along with visits to the hosting Rotary clubs is also part of the interesting program.
