The last scout jamboree in Finland was held in 2010. Finland’s second-largest scout camp was held in Hanko in 1996 where 14,500 people took part.
 
The Roihu camp programme is structured around different themes, such as experience, global education, well-being, creativity, water, and entrepreneurship. About 3,000 volunteers are responsible for organising the camp.
 
The camp continues until Thursday, July 28.
