The Jungwacht Blauring and the boy/girl scouts (Pfadi) are two important youth organizations that are active in the canton Lucerne. Children and young persons of all nationalities and religions can make new friends and enjoy many exciting adventures in the Pfadi and Jungwacht Blauring.
The Jungwacht Blauring is the largest organization for children and young people in the canton Lucerne. Spending time with friends, playing, camping, exploring nature, and making meaningful use of free time are just a few of the advantages of this type of youth organization.
The largest international youth organization is the Pfadi. From theater projects to cave exploration, volleyball tournaments to Christmas parties in the woods, there is hardly anything the scouts haven’t done by now.
The Lucerne city neighborhood organizations (Quartiervereine) support the local residents. They organize parties or events to help the people in the community feel at home and become better acquainted. The neighborhood offices (Quartierbüros) that are located in some areas are an initial place to turn to, especially for families with children.
