Nocrich Scout Centre H. C. Habermann is the only scout centre in Romania and it was opened in 2010 in the old parochial house of the Evangelical church, a house built in 1796 which hadn’t been used for 20 years. Getting the centre to where it is now was a long and tedious process that gathered the effort of many scouts who came from Romania and all around the world and volunteered. We are being literal when we say that Nocrich Scout Centre is a place that belongs to everyone. Together they created the Nocrich Family and a place where scouts can develop activities and experience scouting in a unique place, a traditional saxon village full of history.
The scout centre is located in the middle of the village, near the Evangelical Church and it consists of 2 bedrooms (16 beds), one activity room, one dining room with library, kitchen and bathroom. The yard is 10.000 m2 and we have plenty of space for camping and as well a building with toilets and showers, a barn which is used for activities and a pottery workshop. The pottery workshop at Nocrich is the only such workshop in the area, and gives interested people the opportunity to experience an old handicraft of the region and an enjoyable creative workshop. T he centre is a meeting place for Romanian but also foreign scouts and each year we welcome about 600 guests and volunteers from different countries such as Argentina, Austria, Sweden, France, Spain, Germany, Iceland, Macedonia, New Zealand, USA, Denmark and many others.
We provide our guests with a proper place for having scout activities, for enjoying a unique experience in the Transylvanian countryside and for making new, longlasting connections and friends. Moreover, we keep in contact with a number of craftsmen in the area and we can arrange workshops on smithery, working with leather and wicker weaving (braiding twigs into hats, baskets etc.). Trekkings around the villages in Hartibaciu Valley are also an opportunity to get the feel of what the local area has to offer.
