For the estate of the future


Sustainability and Scouting go hand in hand. That is why the Scouting estate is also a sustainable site. You can see that everywhere on the estate. Campers can use free bicycles on the Zeewolde Scouting Estate, the site is designed in such a way as to encourage biodiversity, but the buildings are also built from sustainable materials from Staatsbosbeheer in the area. A greywater circuit is used, waste is separated, green electricity is purchased. All so that nature has plenty of room to flourish.

Scouts learn how important nature is at a young age

Since the summer of 2018, Scouting Estate Zeewolde has officially become a member of the SCENES network. SCENES stands for Scout Center of Excellence for Nature and Environment. There are three global conditions that must be met to be a member of the SCENES network. The Scouting site must be natural, offer nature and environmental education and the environment must be taken into account as much as possible.

Worldwide, 34 Scouting sites are affiliated with this network of sustainable Scouting sites. A SCENES site is committed to protecting the environment and also creating greater understanding of the environment. The aim of this network is to make Scouts (and non-Scouts) aware of the importance of nature and the environment, as a site itself to minimize the impact on the environment and to protect the natural environment. More information about SCENES can be found on the SCENES website.

The Adventure House

The Avonturenhuis will be realized in 2020. The aim is to make this one of the most sustainable Scouting buildings ever. You can read how we are going to do that on the page of the adventure house.

Fauna tower
