Gnist 2022

The YWCA-YMCA Guides and Scouts of Norway holds its national jamboree every four years. It is our biggest event where thousands of scouts from all over Norway, as well as international scouts, come together for a week over the summer holidays. We build the campsite together, sleep in tents, take part in activities, have campfires, go hiking, hold Scout's Own and a whole lot more. The jamboree is the perfect place to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.

This year’s jamboree is called Gnist, which means spark. One tiny spark can be the start of something great, and we hope you will bring your spark to Norway this summer!

Gnist will take place July 2 to 9 2022 in Forsand, Sandnes kommune, on the west coast of Norway. The closest airport is Stavanger airport Sola. There are also trains and ferries to Stavanger. From Stavanger city centre and Sola airport there will be transport organised by the jamboree to get to the campsite.

Camp song lyrics

We light a spark

Some days the hills seem heavy
Some days our steps seem small
It is better then if we walk them together
In a companionship where we can give and receive
Some days it is easy to shout aloud
Other days I would rather disappear
Here we are many, there is room for everybody
We come here with everything we have and are
With everything we have and are

Chorus:
We light a spark in ourselves and in each other
We light a spark and believe we can change
There is so much hope in everything if we stand together
You lift me up so I can take part
in keeping the flame alive


Some days it is easy to find your way
Other days the fog lies thick
Difficult to find your way home
We need a light
We need to light up the path for each other

We light a spark in ourselves and in each other
We light a spark and believe we can change
There is so much hope in everything if we stand together
You lift me up so I can take part
in keeping the flame alive

Bridge:
Keep the flame alive
So I can take part
In keeping the flame alive
We light a spark in ourselves and in each other
We light a spark and believe we can change
We light a spark in ourselves and in each other
We light a spark and believe we can change
There is so much hope in everything if we stand together
You lift me up so I can take part
in keeping the flame alive
