Scouts rune stone on the rock face during the "Ymer 16"

700 Scouts cut a memory of their camp in Överenhörna, South Lake Mälaren, Sweden

Runic inscription:

Scouts carve stone under Ymer 16

Ymer 16 was a Scout camp in late summer 2016. The camp had about 1,500 participants from some 30 scout troops and lasted between 30 July and 6 August 2016.

The theme of the camp was Norse mythology with elements of the Vikings. The camp was in Överenhörna, south Lake Malaren.
As part of the program included the carving a rune stone on a rock face/slab that I had created and painted up centrally in the camp area.

The idea was not new, for just 21 years ago was the same thing on another rock face in Haninge, south of Stockholm during the scout camp "Viking 95".

Some of the scout leaders were ahead take a quick course in carving technique here at Adelsö and afterwards they borrowed a few sets chisels for the success of the mission.
