School camps

At a Marttinen school camp, the participants’ and group’s aims play an important role. At Marttinen and other youth centres’  school camps, young people learn and develop though practical activities and trying new things. The  school camps support the achievement of the national primary curriculum’s learning goals. The Finnish youth centres are Finland’s largest organiser of school camps, with over 800 school camps organised annually by them.

Marttinen already has 25 years of targeted, quality school camp organisation to its name. Careful planning, professional staff and a safe environment for activities guarantee a successful experience that the whole group can enjoy.

The Education and Culture Ministry supports the social and educational work done by the youth centres, and this is reflected in our pricing. Prices vary by programme and season. On average, a day at school camp with full board costs about 50€/person.


The Marttinen school camp starts at 46,00 € / person.

An aims-focused school camp

At a Marttinen school camp, the participants’ and group’s aims play an important role. It is worth participants’ while to take part in planning the programme and aims from the start. It is possible to include nature in the programme by having adventures in the surrounding area, exercise by finding one’s own limits, handicraft skills by developing creativity, cultural heritage by going on scavenger hunts back in time or group work skills by deciding to contribute to the common good together. Check out the programme service pages to see what aims can be achieved with various programmes and everything you can do at a school camp.
