Tempus18 is the district camp of scouts and guides from Ostrobothnia in summer 2018. International participants are also welcome to take part on an unforgettable adventure!
A crystal ball that can predict the future has been broken and there has been some weird time phenomena in the Ostrobothnia district caused by rupture in space time. Because of this rupture you can experience at least the prehistoric time, the antiquity and even the future. Fixing the ruptures and taking Ostrobothnia back on its track is possible, but only if a big group of scouts are helping.
By the modern calendar Tempus18 is held on 22.-29.7.2018. Our campsite is at Vattaja, Kokkola. The registration for the international participants is at the beginning of 2018. We’ll update more info at tempus18.fi during fall 2017. You can also send your questions to email@example.com.
