Summer course


Whether you’re an aspiring palace builder or a young outdoor lover, it’s at least safe to say that the summer in Garðabær is one big children’s festival. Vífill scouts are an energetic scouting club that maintains fun activities during the summer and winter. In June, July, and August there will be Construction and Adventure courses.

Construction course (7-12 year olds)

The children get to build a playhouse or a garden hut during the course, which is also broken up with games and other fun activities. At the end of the course, the children can take the buildings home if they wish. The construction sites have been particularly popular in recent years, and attendance has often exceeded the maximum places offered. To guarantee a place in the course it is best to register the prospective builder as soon as possible.

Adventure course (7-12 year olds)

We will go on various trips in the vicinity of the scout home.
Including cave exploration, hiking, fishing, biking, beach trips, and so much more. The children get to know nature and learn to be prepared for the risk factors found in modern society as well as engaging in meaningful and constructive games.
