Every group organizes its program according to its own ideas and wishes. On the following pages we would like to give you some tips from the many different possible program options. If you need any help during the preparations please feel free to ask the Zellhof Team.

Mini Jamboree

The many different nationalities present in the summer offers an ideal opportunity to get to know Scouts from other countries,organize communal activities and make international friends.

Please leave some room in the program planning for communal activities, for example: Hikes, wide games, exploration, sporting events, singing contests, campfires etc. 

Day of open pots

One of the highlights, which has now become a tradition, is the international meal. Every group cooks a bit more as usual and allows all the others to come and taste a bit of their national meal, after which everything ends with singing and games.

Pfadfinderdorf Zellhof is a place where international meetings are made easy. Collective international activities are frequently organized by interested groups. All group leaders are invited to a camp leaders meeting on Mondays at 9 p.m, where all initiatives for international activities can be discussed and prepared. The Wednesday evening has emerged as most prominent time for international activities. The Zellhof Team will help you with any needs you might have for this.
