This year’s summer camp for the SpĂ„nga scouts will be in Tiveden, in what is said to one of Sweden’s most beautiful national parks. I’ve never been there but it sounds incredible. When Ingrid signed up, I wanted to go, too, so I signed up for the kitchen crew. For about four hours of work every day, I get a free trip to Tiveden, and I don’t even have to make any arrangements myself.

The camp won’t be until late July/early August, but the kitchen crew has already made all plans and preparations. Or rather, our experienced leader has made most of the plans, but we did help with the preparations. These are the low-tech but very sturdy crates that all the kitchen equipment will be travelling in. I wonder how many trips they have survived.
