Helping us towards a carbon neutral festival 

2nd-9th August 2025

Welcome to Forest Subcamp!

Forests are the largest terrestrial ecosystem of Earth and are found all around the globe.


Step out from the shade 

Step into the vastness of being in Forest, providing a canopy of culturally diverse experiences. 
May the spirit of adventure, camaraderie, and discovery in Forest Subcamp inspire you, and wherever your Festival path carries you, with the many Scouts and Guides from around the world, it will be an unforgettable experience.



Welcome to Forest Sub Camp

Our team are pleased and thrilled to be part of the Festival of Scouting and Guiding 2025.

This will be our second KIJ as a team looking after all you amazing leaders and participants.

Many of the team have experienced Scouting and Guiding abroad with groups of young people, travelling to countries such as Austria, France & Italy. We will bring those experience to our subcamp to encourage and provide opportunities to share the richness the many different cultures at our festival will offer.


‘Forest’ is the theme for our subcamp and we are working together, planning and organising some fantastic activities and experiences and guarantee you will have the most amazing time, a camp you will never forget and will fill you with memories for years to come!. 


From thrilling challenges to shared meals, storytelling to cultural crafts, there's something for everyone at the Forest Subcamp.


You will explore our exciting line up of awareness projects, focusing on our impact on Forest regions of the world. You will have the opportunity to take part in the KIJ Festival Challenge.

From sunrise fun to evening concerts under the stars, there's never a dull moment at the Forest Subcamp!

The Lemur

Lemurs share resemblance with other primates, but evolved independently from monkeys and apes. They live in Madagascar and due to a highly seasonal climate, lemur evolution has produced a level of species diversity rivalling that of any other primate group. Following the arrival of humans on the island around 2,000 years ago, over a dozen species of lemurs, most larger than living species, have become extinct. Since the 1990s there has been a lot of work to return most of the discovered species back to full status. This is a significant accomplishment.
There are many global regeneration projects Scouts and Guides can get involved with and at our Festival you can find out about projects and how you may like to take action, make a difference to the world around us and protect our planet for future generations.
