Scoutcamp Banská Štiavnica - Slovakia

Scout camp | Banská Štiavnica

Scout camp

Hodrusa-Hamre is one of the oldest Scout campsites in Slovakia – an ideal base for scout expeditions and discovering nature and the historical monuments of the Stiavnica hills in the heart of Slovakia! There are a lot of opportunities for swiming in the lakes, hiking and extreme biking. Just 10 kilometres from the campsite is Banska Stiavnica – a Unesco World Heritage list town with a lot of museums and possibilities for sight-seeing.

The campsite is a typical Slovakian Scout base, with 34 beds in „podsada" tents, cooking on a field cooker, a field canteen, open camp fires and field showers. The only permanent buildings are the toilets. The Scout base is quite large, so it offers more space for your own tents, not just for 34 people – the maximum capacity is 120 visitors. Situated just two hundreds metres from the lake, this campsite offers a lot of fun during hot summers. Discover the beauty of Slovak nature and the hospitality of Slovak Scouts!
