From the project manager
As the year changed the first phase of registration ended on the last day of the year. We received almost 2000 registrations from over 200 fire brigades from Finland and abroad. What a great result, thank you all who registered!
At the end of last year the camp daycare, program and course leaders were refining their plans. The management team of the camp also held a meeting before the year changed. After new year the daycare, canteen and first aid have had meetings. Also the camp office gathered in Turku with representatives from all spheres of activities to go through all the participants, who registered before January. Needed information was specified and presentations were clarified. All spheres of activity have been busy, as they should be.
The next important phase is the jamboree seminar in Lohtaja on 23.-25.2. There the spheres of activity will deepen their plans of the use of the area and these plans will be adapted among all spheres in order for the big picture to be under control during the camp. We have already almost 90 registrations for this event, from 44 different fire brigades across Finland. Registration ends on 14.2., so you still have time to registrate in HAKA and meet other camp experts and give your input to the planning process of the camp.
A new issue of Camp News will air in February. It will be focused on training and consist of information about the camp’s central sphere of activity: the courses. In this number you will also find contact informations, map of the camp area and other useful information.
We have made a request to the brigades to receive more detailed information on their tents, vehicles and trailers. Sending this crucial information will not take long, but it makes our planning work a lot easier! More information can be found on our website under “announcements”.
Next week we will open registration for the “setting up the camp” and “taking down the camp” –camps. The camps will be added to HAKA under events and jamboree. And while you add yourself and all volunteers from your brigade to these camps, you can also add information about your brigade to HAKA if needed.
Registration for the camp continues and the next phase will end on 30.4.2018. Soon the cold season will be behind us and springtime will come as the sunlight increases. I wish an active spring for all, please be in contact if you have any questions!
