We are a Scout association which is located in Hamburg, Germany and we are officially promoted by the Hamburg Authority for Employment, Social, Family Affairs and Integration (BASFI,

We have more than 1000 members (age 9-22 years) which are subdivided in smaller groups of 5-13 people and are guided by a scout leader with an age of 16-22 years. Our guiding principle is “Youth guides Youth”.

Our Scout leaders attended a course to become a youth group leader. This course takes at least 3 weeks and includes topics as Education, Health and Nutrition, Survival and Traveling Skills. Furthermore they have to finish a first-aid-course which is additionally specialized on traveling and care-taking of children.

All our Scout leader and the board of the association are working as volunteers and they own a youth group leader card (Jugendleitercard “Juleica”).

Our Scout activities are based on forming a group of young people and strengthening the community of the group. The members of a group are in the same age and they stay together for a time of 4-6 years. During this time we focus on joint activities including playing, crafting, singing, learning from and with each other.

The established groups go regularly hiking with a tent around the area of Hamburg over the weekend (about once per month). During the summer holidays they travel for 2-3 weeks in European Countries where they discover the nature, foreign countries and new cultures.
