Information about our adventure...
What is this?
We are planning a large scale event to give as many young people as possible an amazing international experience in Austria.
When is it?
The event will take place between the 13th and 21st August 2023. Young people and their Leaders will leave on the morning of 13th August and return late on 21st August.
Where is it?
Pfadfinderdorf Zellhof, International Scout and Guide Centre in Austria.
How will we get there?
We will be looking at options for transport once we have an idea of numbers, after which we will be able to provide more information regarding travel plans.
Who can go?
The event is open to youth members born between 20 August 2005 and 13 August 2013.
How much will it cost?
£795. The price includes travel, accommodation, food, activities, t-shirts, necker, hoodie, insurance, pre-event activities and a whole load of amazing memories.
Deposits and Payments
A deposit of £95 will be due by 31 March 2022. Your group will be collecting money locally and will be requesting this shortly. Once collected, the group will pass on their payments to the County bank account. All payments will be non-refundable as we'll be making payments for fixed costs such as transport, clothing and activities in advance of the trip.
What about COVID?
We will only commit to spending money when we have to, but like most events, it is unlikely that we will be able to get insurance for all COVID related claims.
These are still in the planning but are likely to include:
- White water rafting
- Visit to Salzburg
- Outdoor water park
- Days out to local attractions
- Opportunities for young people to choose additional activities
- Evening entertainment
- Meeting other scouts from around the world
Part of our aim is to ensure that the trip is as accessible as possible. Please don't let the activities put you off. We can work with the needs and wishes of young people to ensure they have the best adventure possible.
My leader hasn't mentioned it yet?
Don't wait for them to ask you, we're on with signing people up and collecting deposits. Ask them how your group are going to get involved. If you still need assistance, please email us here
We plan to make the event price as attractive as possible, to allow as many young people as possible to take part.
We need to deliver something special, but need to remember that we have to be able to achieve it too... it is unlikely we'll be offering flights into space, but nonetheless, our aim is to deliver something outstanding.
There will not be any selection process and by working together, we aim to make the event accessible to all.
Like any large scale event, it needs to include something different. The team are already looking at what we can offer to make the event fun and adventurous
With everything that happens on events like these, our ultimate aim is that everyone returns having had the best time possible, and this event will be no different.
We'll be updating this page and sending out more information to groups as soon as we have it. Please talk with your group leaders about how young people can get involved.
