Kimara 101: All the information you wanted to know

We warmly welcome you to Kimara, the ninth regional camp of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area Guides and Scouts! We are expecting the camp to gather more than 6000 participants to come together to Evo, Hämeenlinna for an unforgettable experience.  

Kimara, which roughly translates to “mixture”, is a scout camp for the new generation, combining the loved scout traditions of yesterday with the visions of tomorrow. The overreaching themes of sustainability, friendship and caring are the building blocks of which Kimara is made of. 

Daily life and program on Kimara

The daily life on camp includes new friends, unique experiences and exciting programs, where you will be able to challenge yourself and enjoy nature! And one must not forget the awesome evening parties either! Programs and schedules will be tailored to keep in mind each participants’ age group.  

The camp offers breakfast, 2 warm meals and an evening snack. Remember to let us know of your special dietary requirements when registering. Participants will sleep in tents provided by the local scout troops. Participants are also welcome to use their own tent.

Registration and paying

Registration for the camp is open from 15.1. until 13.3. Registration should be done by guardians for campers under the age of 18.   

The participation fee for the full camp (26.7-3.8.) is 220 €. For the shorter camp (27.7.-30.7.), the fee is 160 €. All participants aged 7-9 will participate in the shorter camp, if their guardian is not present. Participants over the age of 18 may also register for the day camp. The day camp fee (47 €) entitles you to participate the camp for 24 hours, including meals from lunch to breakfast, the camp program, and tent accommodation provided by local troop.

Please keep in mind that the camp fee is paid during the enrollment. Every participant’s enrollment and payment are carried out separately. If the payment is interrupted, enrollment must be redone again from scratch. Enrollment becomes valid only after the payment has been completed and confirmed by the system. Do not close the browser before payment has been confirmed.
