Scouts day camp 1 (Ruoholahti)
Scouts day camp is intended for all children aged 7–10 years, that is, those attending grades 1–3 in primary school.
At day camp, we explore interesting places nearby, cook meals on a portable cooker, play games and have fun, do woodwork and other handicrafts, and enjoy our holidays in the company of good friends!
Day camps are an excellent way for a child to spend their summer holidays. Day camp is also a handy and easy way to handle childcare when the parents are still working.

Day camp programme
Day camps are an excellent way for a child to spend their summer holidays. Most of the camp days are spent outdoors, regardless of the changing weather in June.
The camp day program includes activities from a real scouting program. At day camp, we explore interesting places nearby, cook meals on a portable cooker, play games and have fun, do woodwork and other handicrafts. At the each camp aims to swim at least once.
Campers make their own meals every day using a portable cooker. Camp counsellors help and oversee the cooking activities. The day also includes an afternoon snack. Päiväleirien ruoka on maistuvaa, terveellistä ja se ottaa huomioon erilaiset erityisruokavaliot.
At day camp, there are three fun counsellors in charge of the daily programme and of the children’s safety. We only use hired employees at our camps and the counsellors have attended trainings organised by Leirikesä.
