For the Olympic Scouting Games there are 6 specialities about scouting activities. It is possible to participate alone or in group, small or large. In this way it will be possible that each boy-scout can choose the speciality he prefers, according to his attitudes. The Olympic disciplines are: Orienteering, Skyrunning (running in mountain), Scoutball, Junglecleaning (cleaning the forest), Pathfinding (restyling of paths), Pioneering (woodcrafts). More info on the website For being able to guarantee an equilibrated competition and a variety of countries represented, the event will be carried out only if we will get the minimal number of inscriptions by the 1st of June (it is necessary the advance payment of the inscription that attests the registration; in case of cancellation, the money you have paid will be taken off the price of your nights). However, in case there won’t be the Olympic Scouting Games, it always be assured the development of the World Cup for the Scout Service.www.genboree.sandesiderio.com (cleaning of paths, cleaning of the rivers, painting railings, etc.), getting correspondents scores that insert their group in an appropriate general ranking. The participation happens subdivided in teams of 4 persons. Every group can play with more teams, but the score is not cumulative. The organization of the job and the employed time is free chosen of the participants. At the end, only the job judged completed gets scores. In September who arrives at the end of the competition in summit to the ranking, is automatically the winner of the Scout World Cup, conquering a wonderful prize for their group! ( Genboree The World Cup for the Scout Service is a competition that takes place during all the summer and that rewards the better group that takes part to a work camp in San Desiderio. The idea is born for allowing to all those who, not being able to take part in the period of the Olympic Scouting Games, wants however to participate to one international competition. Every group that stays to Saint Desiderio in whichever period comprised between June and September can take part and can make particular services EVENTS
Because of our scout camp is very large and it is a lot of years that we host hundreds of scouts and we organize international events, it is very easy to meet, above all in the month of July, Twinnings groups from France, Belgium and Italy. Often these groups ask us in the previous months to have contacts of the other scout groups staying in the Spensley Park in the same period, for being able to EVENTS make a twinning and to share with them the summer activity. Often a lot of them ask us to have contacts of a local, from Genoa or from Liguria scout group. That’s why we propose to all the groups from Liguria to take part to a "welcome camp" in San Desiderio, having the possibility to make a twinning with foreign groups, sharing with them a service experience and guiding them in the free time discovering the beauties historical, artistic, touristic and gastronomic of Genoa and our region.
Who we are F.A.Q. The C.A.S.T. (Culture, Art, hiStory and popular Traditions) of San Desiderio is an association of voluntary service, institutionally outside to the structure of the scout associations, but very tied to the scout movement having between its founder associates scout in activity, ancient scout and parents of young scout. The CAST is born having the aim to rediscover the culture, the art, the history and the popular traditions, and, above all, having the purpose to create a new spirit of aggregation able to facilitate interactions between the people, the generations and the races, in a European and Mediterranean key. In particular the CAST has realized cultural events for the young people, it has regenerated green areas bringing back them to the public utility, it has been engaged in restyling building of social utility. From the great knowledge of the scout world, of its style, its values, its way of life and having a lot of contacts inside the movement, sharing the same ideals, the CAST has chosen to address its activities to the scout groups offering them hospitality and support in the development of their own activities, and engaging the scouts in service’s opportunity to benefit the territory of San Desiderio.
F.A.Q. The Genboree The Genboree is the Genoa’s Jamboree, a scout event that celebrates the Olympic Scouting Games and the Scout World Cup, particular competitions typically scout. Usually the real Jamboree is an event where Scouts and Guides all over the world make contact each other. Scouting experiences or cultures are exchanged and ideas are shared, thus contributing to the world brotherhood of Scouting. The real Jamboree is the meeting of the Scouts from all over the world and take place every four years. Instead, the Genboree is a simple opportunity for living a little experience similar to the real Jamboree. An event that happens every year and stays alive during the year. Infact our hope is to make San Desiderio a place available every days of the year as a point of meeting for all the scouts from all over the world that want to share the scouting spirit with other brothers scout, finding in Genoa a stable meeting’s opportunity.
