ABOUT THE SCM WEEKEND 2019
The SCM Weekend (“Forbundshelga”) is the social highlight of the year in SCM Norway. This year it is held October 20th-22nd. It takes place at Utøya.

The main topic for this years SCM Weekend is “Stop hate speech, racism and right wing extremism!” This year, we are blessed with the presence of four members from our Palestian sister organization, Palestine Youch Ecumenical Movement. They will witness about life under occupation, and get to know Norwegian SCMers. In addition, there will of course be services, parties, good food, good company, swimming, bonfires, games and everything else that makes for a classic SCM Weekend.
