HISTORY OF ŠSA

The role of the association became important when we acquired a permanent camping space in Ribno near Bled in 1969 as part of the ŠSA. From the very beginning, its task was to promote scouting in the Šalek valley and to provide support and assistance at summer camps to its members. The role of the association became important when we acquired a permanent camping space in Ribno near Bled in 1969 as part of the ŠSA.

In 1977 we started organising camps in Savudrija, Croatia in the Veli Jože camp. ŠSA groups camped there until 1991. We returned again in 2010. The camps in Ribno and Savudrija with their infrastructure are the most important basic elements which enable camping for all members of the Šalek Scout Association and other interested groups from outside of Šalek valley, such as local student organisations and foreign scout groups.

Šalek Scout Association is comprised of next scout groups:
- ROD JEZERSKI ZMAJ VELENJE
- ROD PUSTI GRAD ŠOŠTANJ
- ROD TOPLI VRELEC TOPOLŠICA
- ROD LILIJSKI GRIČ PESJE
- ROD HUDI POTOK ŠMARTNO OB PAKI
- ROD MRZLI STUDENEC MISLINJA

There is a tremendous amount of work, coordination, integration and planning between scout groups. Primarily we are here because of over 1100 children who camp in both of our camp centers every year.
