International Scout Week

DPSGler die sich an der Hand halten, rote Kluften im Hintergrund

With the International Scout Week (ISW), which takes place every summer, we want to make it possible for you to experience international Scout encounters at our national centre in Westernohe. You can decide for yourself whether you want to come with a partner group or spontaneously take part in the activities on offer, or whether you want to organize things creatively yourself and, for example, invite your camp neighbour group from another country to an afternoon of games. The International Working Group and the Westernohe Federal Centre have come up with a small handful of exciting programme items: Feel "arrived in the heart of the DPSG" at our get-to-know-you and welcome evening, enjoy the taste of the "international cooking pots" and get to know each other and your campfire cultures at the "International Campfire Evening".


Unfortunately, the International Scout Week, or ISW for short, cannot take place in Westernohe this year due to the ongoing corona pandemic, BUT that does not mean that we are canceling it! Even if you cannot meet in person in 2021, we would like to connect German with international groups and enable a digital exchange between this summer and the next. With the hope, of course, that we can all meet in Westernohe next year.

If you are interested, just write us an email at

We are looking forward to connecting many DPSG groups and scout groups from abroad this year and then to welcome you all in Westernohe in 2022. You can already look forward to a great week together next year, for which you can plan your own camp as well as take part in the intercultural framework program of the International Working Group (IAK) of the DPSG with an opening evening, intercultural saucepan evening and camp party evening during which you will have the Chance to make many international contacts. The DPSG groups can apply for grants for the international encounter for both their DPSG group and the partner group from abroad.

If you have any questions about funding, just contact the International Office: Tel: 02131/469988.
