This is a final thesis on the landscape architecture program at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. It is the end of five years of studies and comprises 30 ECTS. This thesis is about the camp area Sjöröd, located by Gyllebosjön (the Gyllebo Lake) on Österlen in Skåne, southern Sweden. The thesis results in plan for how the area could be used in the future. It also raises the questions; what scouting of today is, how it is to be developed for the future, what a camp is and which aims the scout movement has set up for itself and its activities. The thesis also treats what is typical for Skåne, for Österlen and for the area around Sjöröd as a starting point. A historical description is given about Sjöröd's development from the nineteenth century and ahead. Theories about destination development among other things are raised as a support for the development of Sjöröd. In order to know how the youth of today think about scout camps, I have done a survey of how some scouts in different ages and locations in Sweden think about camps. An important aspect which many scouts express in my survey is that the most important thing on a scout camp is the social part to meet known friends and strangers. My proposal includes this and wants Sjöröd to be a meeting point for scouts from far and near. Other important aspects are to be able to gather both in the small group as well as many people together, that the scouts themselves should participate in design and performance, the personal development of the participants, to live everyday life on the camp, knowledge about the environment and nature and to practice outdoor life. To shape a temporary place, which a scout camp could be said to be, demands that you make the best use of the place's specific quality. To shape such a place, with specific qualities that can be used variously by different future camps and other events is what this final thesis is concerned about. The different aspects; scouting, the specific of Skåne, Sjöröd as a place, theories and the scouts own opinion are summarised in two policies; one policy which is common for camp sites in Sweden and one policy which is specific for Sjöröd. Then the thesis results in the plan for the area. The proposal makes Sjöröd the glade in the wood and creates a pattern of different glades where you can meet other people both formal and informal. The thesis also includes a time planning part and a reflective part. The final thesis can be read by scouts who are interested in camp and camp development as well as it can be read and used by other organisation representatives who are interested in the same matter as well as landscape architects who want an understanding of the subject.
