BuLa, short for National Scout Camp, is a summer camp with around 35,000 scouts from all over Switzerland.
Saturday, July 23rd to Saturday, August 6th, 2022
an additional two weeks of construction and one week of dismantling
Location: Goms VS
The participants of the BuLa are scouts aged six and over from all over Switzerland and international guest groups. Older scouts get involved as leaders or helpers. A total of 30,000 scouts from the 22 cantonal associations of the four language regions and 500 international guests are expected. The camp is run by 500 people, who can fall back on 5,000 helping scouts and volunteers.
What is on the program in the federal camp?
The individual scout groups (departments) live next to each other on a common camp site for two weeks. You will experience a camp program typical of the path, consisting of scouting techniques, hikes, terrain games, campfires, handicrafts, water activities, etc. The radio scouts, whose project is briefly presented below, are also part of this.
Radio and internet scouts are scouts who are enthusiastic about international exchange among scouts. Today they use the Internet on the one hand and amateur radio on the other. The annual highlight of the radio and internet scouts is the JOTA-JOTI weekend, which takes place in October. This weekend around 1.8 million scouts worldwide take part and thus come into contact with other scouts from all over the world.
If the financing of the BuLa tower is successful, we will build the BuLa tower from 11 to 20 July 2022 and from 7 to 12 August 2022 we will dismantle it.
You can find more detailed information on the sub-projects here:
In addition to a complete shortwave radio system, with which scouts from all over the world can be reached, contact with astronauts of the ISS is established at the camp site. In addition, the scouts get to know their first electronic components in a playful way by soldering together a kit and rediscovering the SCOUT Internet.
