What is Krinkel?

Every 4 years Chiro Flanders, Belgium’s largest youth movement, organises a big summer camp for its oldest members and leaders: Krinkel! Taking part in Krinkel is an extraordinary experience. More than 4 000 aspiranten (those are our oldest members) and leaders, live and play together for 6 days. We sleep in tents, with the warmth of campfires, play games in small and big groups and join spectacular shows. It’s a perfect opportunity to have great fun with very nice people.

Krinkel is a very active summer camp. Playing games is a central part of Chiro and Krinkel. Therefore active participation is expected from each participant. It is also very likely that you will get dirty during some games, because Belgians like to play it “rough”. We really go out camping, so don’t expect hot showers or spacious toilets.

Every region in Flanders gets its own campground on the Krinkel grounds. All participants eat and sleep together in their own region. All our international guests will be part of the international campground. They will follow the same program, the only differences are the language and an extra day of Krinkel!

The international campground at krinkel

For Krinkel we invite our friends from all over the world to join us. For every international guest we will search a ‘buddy’, a Flemish participant who speaks one of the languages you also speak (English, French or Spanish). These Flemish participants will live alongside you at the international campground. You will be part of a ‘living group’ of about 10 to 12 people and leaders from the international campground.
