Activities found at Blidingsholm

Fishing

Blidingsholm is known for its clean waters and its large variety of fish. Over 20 different freshwater fish species live in the Mörrum that may be fished naturally. Within the private waters of Blidingsholm all firmly booked camp participants may fish without a fishing license. Free, no booking necessary. Please inquire in the Scout Office about the boundaries of the fishing waters. Please also find more about Swedish fishing traditions at the Salmon Museum in Mörrum and the hunting and fishing museum in Eriksmåla.

Timber and firewood

For your construction activities you can use our large storage timber. There is sufficient construction and firewood available for all groups. Please confirm the needed amounts in the Scout Office, so the wood you need can be assigned. Lumber from the Lumberyard must not be cut up or burned. The borrowed timber must be returned in good condition. There must be no remaining nails. Timber not returned or destroyed must be payed for. It is prohibited to cut down or damage living wood. Dry firewood can be purchased in small or large quantities. Lumber and fire wood can be collected during normal Scout Office hours.

Canoe Hike

The water area of Lake Åsnen is ideal for shorter and longer canoe trips. Both the big Lake Åsnen, with its many thousand of islands, as well as the river Mörrum. You can paddle for days without meeting civilization. On our special canoe map we have drawn out some special routes. Along these routes around the lake there are also prepared lodging places and some supply shopping available. We also offer our scout groups free nights at our farm Fålaboda by the lakeside of Åsnen, a very short trip (by canoe) from Blidingsholm. Here you can either camp, or stay in a rebuilt barn with ready accomodations. For tour consulting, please contact the Scout Office. For prices, please see price list. Please pre book canoes.

Bonfire night

Depending on the interest we invite all groups on every Friday from 21.00 clock to our great bonfire evening – “The Campfire of Blidingsholm”. We would be very happy if some groups would volontairly play something, recite or contribute in any other way to our small program. Please bring musical instruments and song books.

Open-Air Service

The camp led by Blidingsholm is committed to providing a service or mass for all groups and teams in the summer and to provide a priest. We ask you to state if in your camp, a priest, municipal or pastor or curate is present and would agree to hold such a service or to say mass. The denomination should not matter. If we have no priests in the camp, the camp management will try to arrange for a local pastor to come.

Paintball

A game for those who really like a challenge. Two teams try to get the flag of the opposing team in their own castle, competing on three tracks with different terrain textures.
