The Environmental Scout Centre Kočevski Rog (SOC) is located at the edge of the virgin forest Rajhenavski Rog in the southern part of Slovenia. The main mission of the centre is the development and passing on of an environmental awareness consciousness through the implementation of the scout method. Check on the map.
From Podturn pri Dolenjskih Toplicah:At the beginning of the village Podturn turn right and follow the signs Rog, which brings us to the Scout Environmental Centre (13.5 km).
The Kočevski Rog is a karstified plateau in the Kočevje Highlands. The plateau is part of the traditional Lower Carniola region of Slovenia and of the Dinaric Alps. The highest area is the central part, with the 1099 meter high peak Veliki Rog. The plateau is densely forested.
Environmental Scout Center is located in the heart of forests of Kocevje, on karst area, which has been secluded for centuries as a mighty and inaccessible virgin forest, because of its remoteness, vast forests, sharp climate, lack of water and poor fertility. Its characteristics are karst abysses, caverns and sinkholes. Vegetation is diverse and there are big local climatic diferrences because of variety of relief. Merged forest areas are a habitat for large carnivores such as brown bear (Ursus arctos), wolf (Canis Lupus) and lynx (Lynx lynx). Residents have preserved their customs and dialect from generation to generation because of geographic isolation. Slovenian biggest sawmill was active on this area in the end of 19th and the beginning of 20th century. During World War II many of Kocevars have emigrated, others either ran away or were banished after the war.

It is divided in two parts: one for a camp up to 50 and the second for up to 90 participants. There are often several small scout groups camping there at the same time. Groups of at least 90 participants, can book the whole campsite for themselves.Each half of the camp site is provided with potable water source for cooking, drinking and washing, one cold-water shower and chemical toilets. Carting of the waist is taken care of.Groups have to have their own tents, kitchen and other equipment. The wood material for pioneering and making a small camp fire can be provided.To provisionally book the group it is necessary to send a confirmation of group’s interest and give planned dates of arrival and departure.
