Buitenzorg will reopen from July 1st!

Due to the Covid-19 regulations we can accommodate less campers than we normally would.

From July 12th to July 25th we are full.

We do have room during the rest of the summer period.




As part of the measures to limit the spread of the Coronavirus, we have decided to prolong the closure of our Scoutcenter until July 1st. In the coming weeks we hope to give more clarity about how we can re-open our buildings and campsites.


Guests that have made a booking in the summer period will be informed about this decision.


Located deep in the heart of the Vuursche forest, in the centre of the Netherlands, Buitenzorg has been welcoming Scouts & Guides from all over the world since 1949.

With over 12 hectares of grounds and plenty of pioneering poles, team games and challenges can be enjoyed in abundance. Evenings are spent round campfires; with the largest seating up to 1,000 people.

At Buitenzorg you can experience nature in a responsible and sustainable way. The staff of Buitenzorg works according to the international guidelines of Scout Centres of Excellence for Nature and Environment (SCENES).

Buitenzorg site is divided into 18 campsites of varying size and your group will be allocated the one most appropriate to your group. Each campsite has its own campfire area and is marked out by the surrounding trees. Toilets and showers are available on site.
