Scout valley was established in 2014 and is in its stage of development. Everyone and anyone who loves nature can find his place in the campsite activities. Volunteers are highly appreciated in everyday tasks, maintenance and organization. We are working with a group of Lithuanian volunteers and waiting forwards to cooperate with EVS volunteers.
Scout valley is accredited to run projects under European Voluntary Service (EVS), part of the European Union’s Erasmus+ Programme. We are Receiving, Sending and Coordinating organization.
EVS Project dates are flexible – 2-12 months long.
Scout valley main programs and activities:
– Outdoor activities for scouts: hikes, camps, leader outdoor training courses, meetings and other events;
– Outdoor activities for non-scouts: special summer camps to introduce scout outdoor experience to 8-18 years old children and youth;
– Outdoor adventure education programs for schools and youth groups;
– Promotion of voluntary work in the region;
– Promotion of ECO sustainable living..
Scout valley is located in a small village Sukiniai. It is surrounded by beautiful wild nature, forests, lands and a stream. Only 8 km away there is a lake Žirnajai where we organize sailing activities. We are part of active Eco community. Eco and environmental issues are very important part of our campsite. We generate our own electricity, use rain water, composting toilets, recycling and build sustainable houses.
Tasks for EVS volunteers
The campsite offers a wide range of scouting activities for our visitors:
► on the site (archery, team building games, bonfire practice, cooking, strategic games, axes and knifes etc.);
► out in the nature (hikes, indicative races etc.);
► on the water (rowing, sailing, kayaking, rafting and team building etc.).
We do summer camps, weekend hikes, promoting “Scout valley” in the festivals etc. We closely cooperate with Sea scouts and National Lithuanian scouting organization and organize their events, camps and projects.
EVS volunteer will be part of all above mentioned activities. He/she will guide visitors and instruct them on the topic, prepare campsite and other activity zones, organize and search for new hike routes. New ideas and experience are very welcome!
Next to it volunteers will help with the campsite daily maintenance: lawn mowing, trimming, infrastructure, planting the trees etc. Tasks might involve some construction work and any other campsite related activities.
Our volunteers will gain hands on experience organizing activities, summer camps, team work, improve scouting skills and many more valuable skills for life! It will never be the same routine, you will have to be flexible and ready to adapt to the fast changing situations, different groups and coming up activities.
Skautų Slėnis is certainly a fantastic place to volunteer; out in the countryside, blue skies, trees, plenty of wildlife and colleagues who are friendly with a good sense of humour, nothing could be a finer way of spending your spare time.
Welcome to join us!
