Every four years members of BdP (German Association of Guides and Scouts) are invited to gather at their National Jamboree, the so-called "Bundeslager" or "BuLa" for short. 5000 participants and around 500 Scouts and Guides from all over the world will come together to build a large tent city, and to experience our shared Scouting and Guiding spirit. In order to prepare for this, group leaders are invited to take part in a national pre-camp weekend at the BuLa campsite roughly 3 months prior to the official camp opening.

You and your group will be assigned to a subcamp of around 500 people each where you will be staying with your German host group.
