The international summer camp of 2015 will be organized by scouting Fivelgroep Eemsmond Delfzijl. Scouting Delfzijl is founded in 1910, making it one of the oldest scouting groups in the Netherlands. Scouting Delfzijl has about 150 members in the age of 7 to 60 years old. Since the fusion of the Fivelgroep and Eemsgroep back in 1990, the group hosts both boy- and girl scouts.
Scouting Fivelgroep is a member of Scouting Nederland. The scouting organisation of the Netherlands
Water and Land scouts
What makes scouting Delfzijl unique, is that we host both water and land scouts. Most scouting groups host only one of the two, but thanks to our unique location we have the facilities to host both. The land scouts usually have programs in and around the clubhouse, the water scouts work on maintaining the “fleet” in the winter, and go out sailing in the summer. Younger water scouts have their own canoes.
