District camp OTAVA 2020 to be moved to 2021 

24.04.2020 Text: Maija Ruokonen

As requested by the camp committee, the board of the Scout District of Southwest Finland has de-cided camp Otava will be moved to be held in Maisaari on 10.-17.6.2021. 

Regarding all large camps, the Guides and Scouts of Finland will follow the Finnish government’s instruc-tions, by which events with 500 or more participants should not be held until after 31.7.2020. All camps planned for the coming summer will either be cancelled or moved to the summer of 2021. We always put health and safety first in all scouting matters. 

Camp Otava’s registration will open again on 1.12.2020. Those who have registered to the camp do not need to take action at the moment. Information on the possible confirmation or cancellation of registra-tions will be distributed in good time before the beginning of the new registration. If possible, camp Otava will be held in full with the same plan, programme and mostly with the same IST-members as this years. 

Despite the exceptional situation, we would like to wish everyone lots of sunshine, and a cheery and healthy summer!
