Outwell Camping Rally on Sletten in Denmark
It all started in 2012 with a small Facebook-group which had around 700 members that turned into an association in spring, 2014.
We have not a quota, president or a board of directors. We are only an association because it makes it possible for us to rent different natural areas around Denmark...
September the 5th, 6th and 7th 2014, about 100 of us met to have a common tent-weekend.
We had rented the area ”Friluftscenter Sletten” located in Central Jutland. A huge natural area separated in many different smaller areas with huge grass areas, forests, lakes and lots of beautiful Danish nature. It is a fantastic camp site with new and nice bathrooms, running water and the option of electricity.
There was already a cosy sound coming from the camp site when we arrived Friday afternoon. Some of the members had arrived earlier than us and had already pitched their tents. Others were pitching tents and others decorating. More and more families arrived during the afternoon. People greeted, looked at tents and talked everywhere.
The children ran around and had already found new friends before dinner was ready. A big common tent in the middle had almost capacity to everyone – at least we could almost get together. It naturally turned into a gathering spot for the night, and for the rest of the weekend. There was a fireplace next to the big tent. The smell of twist bread spread in the late hours of the evening, as the children went hungry once again.
