The Forest School lies in an idyllic spot in the heart of the Julian Alps, only a few meters from Lake Bohinj, next to the Naklova Glava beach. Nearby are the lower station of the popular Vogel ski center cable car, Zlatorog’s Fairy Land, Savica Fall and many other Bohinj landmarks. This prime location has been the main national educational center for Slovenian scouts for over 70 years and has now also become a popular holiday spot for families and groups who want to explore the unspoiled nature.
Forest School is a scout chalet with 38 dormitory-style beds in eight rooms. There are also two bathrooms, a large multipurpose space (dining hall/classroom), an additional smaller classroom, a large club room, and a terrace at your disposal. The chalet is equipped with audio-visual equipment, a large projection screen, and internet access.
The professionally outfitted kitchen in the chalet has everything necessary for quickly preparing healthy meals even for larger groups. We offer breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The surroundings of the Forest School offer a variety of possibilities. In summer, the lake is unique for swimming and other water activities. The camp is an excellent starting point for mountain trips around the Triglav National Park. The Vogel high-altitude ski resort is also in the immediate vicinity, and you can go 1000 meters above the lake by gondola all year round. The area also offers excellent opportunities for bouldering, cycling, rowing, canyoning or rafting.
Nearby are the Savica waterfall, Zlatorog’s fairytale land and many other Bohinj attractions. There is an asphalt volleyball court in the camp area with added basketball hoops. In the middle of the camp is the main fireplace, which provides sparkling camp evenings every night.
The Forest School also offers its guests a range of challenges and guided scout adventures. In the period from mid-May to the end of September, the Gozdna šola house operates as an integral part of the Gozdna šola camp space. In the low season, from October to mid-May, the house is available for organized groups by prior reservation.
