Sjöröd is the Southern Scania’s scout district’s camp area, located at beautiful Österlen.
We arrange camps, summer camps, courses and events for all Scouts, but also for other tenants, such as school classes and other groups. Our concept of ”camp weeks” is an attempt to offer scout troops a foundation for a good camp at a reasonable price.
Sjöröd is located just outside Simrishamn at the shore of Lake Gyllebo. The lake are utilized extensively for a relaxing dip now and then. At the lake’s north end is a swimming area with sandy beach and a kiosk.
In and around the camp area, there are a incredibly beautiful and varied landscape. We strongly recommend a trip on our pioneering track to experience what the beautiful Sjöröd has to offer.
The camp area has everything a scout needs to enjoy an incredible camping experience, there are endless things to see and experience. At Sjöröd we constantly strive to renew our programme, and of course you are always welcome with your own suggestions and requests!
The proximity to Lake Gyllebo’s lovely water combined with the beautiful meadows, lush forests and proximity to Simrishamn and other Österlen means that the opportunities never end for what can be done.
