Kavalahti scout camp is located within a gently rolling and verdant pine forest. The heart of the camp is the grassy central square, where the mediaval pavillions will be set up. The square is surrounded by the beach and the saunas on one side, and the feast hall on the other side. The main building, which is a tad smaller than the feast hall is located uphill from the central square.
The main building has a dozen beds and a kitchen that everybody can use. The three cabins sleep 6-8 persons and are located c. 100 meters from the central square. There is also a fire pit close to camping area.
Kavalahti has quite a lot of camping space. The square in the middle is reserved for period pavillions and tents, and it will be rather full of tents. So, if you plan on bringing a pavillion, please reserve a space for it in advance. Other areas for mundane tents are located just a bit further away around the period encampment; one by the parking lot and the other is in the woods above the main building and the cabins.
There's an outdoor toilet rather close to each camping area, and there's also a handy outdoor kitchen next to the parking lot.
Next to the lake, we have a large and a small sauna building. The bigger one has two electric saunas, warm showers, two dressing rooms as well as a separate room with a fireplace. The small sauna building right by the beach has a traditional wood-heated stove, which provides the best sauna experience for those energetic enough to heat it.
