Special Stamp "National Jamboree 2022"

BuLa – all Swiss guides and scouts will be familiar with this expression, and it'll immediately rekindle memories of the smell of a campfire, friendships and guitar songs. "BuLa" is the Swiss Guide and Scout Movement National Jamboree.

Pfadi EXPO / Exhibition

The Pfadi EXPO/exhibition during the 2022 national camp traces the development of the movement. Using treasures from scout archives, pictures, badges, stamps and postcards on the subject of scouting as well as the past nine national camps from 1925 to 2022, it documents over a hundred years of history.

Numbers for the 2022 national camp

Goms will become a tent city from 23 July to 6 August 2022. The 30,000 BuLa participants will experience a varied camp programme and explore the Goms. Over 5,000 volunteers will be on duty. That is almost 10,000 more than at the last edition. 300 young people travel from abroad.

The camp management has a budget of 25 million Swiss francs. Fifty per cent of this comes from camp fees, 25 per cent from on-site sales and merchandising. The remaining 25 per cent is generated through sponsoring and donations. The main partners of the BuLa are Migros Valais, Swiss Post and Mobiliar.

BuLa Story - Prologue

Future needs origins ...

If someone were to set about writing a history of the Swiss Scout Association, he would actually find very few occasions on the basis of which the development of our movement could be shown. This is a consequence of the federalist structure of our Confederation, in which the main focus of activities can be seen above all in the cantonal associations and the affiliated divisions.
