We will set up our camp in the heart of Cracow -- in the Bednarski Park and the Korona Stadium, close to the Old Town (a 15-minute walk), the Wolnica Square (where the Youth Festival will take place) and the historical district of Kazimierz.

About the WYD

The World Youth Day is an international event for young people from all over the world inspired by Pope John Paul II. During the next WYD, we’ll meet Pope Francis in Cracow, Poland. We expect about 2 million young people to come and gather with the Pope to pray and live their faith in Jesus Christ. The patron saints of WYD 2016 are Saint Pope John Paul II and Saint Faustina, both connected to this city.

World Youth Day 2016... the adventure with the Scouts of Europe!

Want to spend a week with young Catholics from all over the world? Want to serve? Want to relive your memories from WYD 2011 in Madrid? In a year, we’ll be celebrating another World Youth Day in Cracow, Poland. We don’t want to miss you this time!

Why to go there with the Guides and Scouts of Europe?

The WYD gives you an unmissable possibility to meet the scouts from all over Europe. We'll all be in it together -- we'll pray, serve, and share the joy of our faith in Christ who has risen. We'll also camp together and thanks to it there'll be plenty of time to meet and have fun during the FSE Fest.

If you want to be right in the centre of what's going on, come with us. We'll be on all the major events of the WYD. What is more, we won't neglet our scout style -- we'll camp in tents and we'll be right where we're needed.

How can I serve?

There are four main categories of what we'll do:
- cathecheses - bishops from all over the world will preach in many churches in Cracow. We will need your zeal, ideas and experience to animate some of them.
- a great evangelization show for the pilgrims during the Youth Festival. We will need about 300 actors and a few dozen people for technical backup. You can also help us prepare the decorations.
- service during the WYD events - safety, water and other services appointed by the organizers during the opening ceremony, the Way of the Cross, the vigil and the Mass with Pope Francis.
- the camp - setting it up, distributing food, safety, dismantling and service during the scout ceremonies.

Think now about how you want to serve with your unit. In a few months, we'll ask you to declare your intentions. We rely on you! Stay tuned for more information in the newsletters.

Estote parati!
The WYD FSE team
