Studentenscouting Weekend

Unfortunately as of Monday 16th March, following advice from the Government, The Scouts and Girlguiding SSAGO have cancelled plans to send a contingent to SSW 2020. Thank you to those of you who registered interest and we hope to send a contingent in future.

Wanting to visit a new city through SSAGO? Get in a last minute international trip?

The weekend of 24 - 26 of April all scouting groups in the Netherlands will come together for the Student Scouting Weekend (SSW) where there'll be camping, drinking, fun and a chance to explore the city of Delft. This year it's been organised by the Delftsche Zwervers, and it promises to be the biggest SSW yet. If you've seen international visitors at rally this is your chance to be one as we'll be sending a small contingent to visit, members from any club can apply to attend although we have a limited number of places available.

The camp is hosted at the "Castle of the Delft Rovers" in Delft and is right by the Delft University of Technology. SSAGO is not organising transport for this event and it is up to you to arrange and calculate the costs of this. We've put together some ideas on the getting there page.

The camp costs are €25. There may also be other miscellaneous costs throughout the weekend so please see this as a minimum cost and be prepared for some other expenditure. There is some inside space at the venue so we maybe able to arrange to use this to avoid having to bring tents however this is to be confirmed. If tents are required we will aim to split the costs of additional checked luggage as a contingent.

The places available to UK members will be allocated by the national exec and the International officer, once allocated a place you will be required to book individually with the Dutch organisers and pay. Due to the limits please do not book transport until we have confirmed that you have a place.

We will aim to confirm your place within 48 hours of your application and put you in contact with other people attending. If there are more applicants than spaces we will use the motivation you send to select applicants. As we will be confirming places on an ongoing basis we recommend applying early, if all spaces are taken then we may suspend bookings early.
