Welcome to the site of the jamboree for the Youth Fire Brigades!

Lapland’s Rescue Union in partnership with The Finnish National Rescue Association organise an international jamboree for youth fire brigades in Lohtaja 1.-7.7.2018. The camp is situated 30 km north of the city of Kokkola in a shooting and training area of the Finnish Defense Forces. The area is the most important protected area for the dune nature type. The land area is 1400 hectares, 1200 hectares of which belong to the Natura 2000 -network of the European Union.

Registration for the camp will be opened 1.6.2017. Registration instructions will be published on this site in May 2017. For international guests the camp fee will be charged in two installments, which are due the last day of July and the last day of December. The camp fee is 170,00€ / person (adult or youth). The fee includes four meals per day, a camp shirt, training and the camp program. For international groups there will be accommodation in tents on behalf of the organiser.

At the moment we have interested participants from Germany, Austria and Russia. We are expecting around 3500 participants to the camp. Additional information on the training is available from Florian Kruger and on other matters from the project manager Pertti Heikkilä

SAND 2017 camp

In July we organise a pre-camp for about 400 junior firefighters in the same area and we will utilise its experiences in the 2018 jamboree. You can follow the activities of the SAND camp on these www-pages and on Facebook.


Protector of the camp Pekka Hyysalo

Freeski rider Pekka Hyysalo (born 1990) was in the beginning of his professional career, when one second changed everything. In April 2010 he got into a severe jumping accident in Ylläs, received a life threatening brain injury and was in a coma for three weeks. Contrary to bleak prognosis, he recovered into an independent life with the power of persistence and not giving up.

With help from his austrian friend, Hyysalo created a brand FightBack to support his rehabilitation. When a fight for rankings turned into a fight for his life, his values were renewed and now he is making his dream come true by helping others who have received a head injury.

Pekka Hyysalo is also known for Team FightBack, which he has founded. He was chosen the person of the year in the city of Turku and the most positive person of Finland 2014.

You can get to know the FightBack -products through this link and be part of supporting an important cause.
