Please Donate 

Please Donate: „Construyendo puentes de amistad a Matagalpa – Bridges of Friendship to Matagalpa“

We would like to enable a small group of young scouts (mixed group, aged 14-16, at least 2 participants and one leader) from Nicaragua to take part in our whitsun camp. The camp takes place on the whitsun weekend (June 2 to 5, 2017). The whitsun camp represents the foundation of our work. On sunday evening, our traditional promise celebration will take place, which means a lot to us. An invitation to this event proves our deep trust and friendship to our scout friends from Nicaragua.

The trigger for the project was an exceptional distirbution of funds by the charity foundation Siegfried und Christa Wirtz Stiftung. We already collected funds for two scouts, but now we need you to move on! Thanks a lot to the SCW foundation (the photo shows the cheque handover ceremony) and our supporters association.

You want to provide a unique memory for young people from our partner city Matagalpa? You support the idea of looking beyond one's own nose and to see what the world has to offer? You want to donate one Euro or another?
Donate with subject 'Nicaragua' to our supporters association.
If you have any questions or need further information, just send an e-mail to Jamie Lee Harder.
Thank your for your support!

Summer Trip 2016 

This summer, we will go on a trip to Slovakia. The trip will take place during the last three weeks of the summer holidays (approximately 29th of July to 21st of August 2016). Planning has just begun, so we do not have so many details at the moment. Hopefully we will be able to meet our friends in Košice who visited our Brexventure camp in 2013. We hope that many scouts will join the trip and spend some amazing time in Slovakia!

Wupper cleaning 

On Saturday, March 29, we will help to protect the environment. As every year, there is an activity in Wuppertal where everyone is invited to clean the city. Our scout group will participate and clean the banks of the river Wupper near our scout hut in Pauluskirchstraße. This will be a lot of work, because there was no wupper cleaning activity in 2013 due to bad weather conditions, so we expect a lot of rubbish there.
11.03.2014

Book market 

On March 7 and 8 there will be the traditional market for used books in the Pauluskirche, the church next to our scout rooms in Unterbarmen. As every year, we will make cakes and sell them to collect money for our scout group. On friday, the market is opened from 14:00 to 18:00 and on saturday from 11:00 to 16:00.
