The first version to try out is here. What can you expect from our alpha version?
Are you looking for a simple and digital way to plan your camp? Then eCamp is just the thing for you! With this practical tool you can plan all the activities for your camp and create a detailed plan that you can print out and take with you wherever you go.
eCamp is a web-based app for camp and course planning. The application is specialised for camps and courses of youth associations and for Y+S offers in the sport of camp sports/trekking. However, it is open to all interested parties, whether youth associations, school camps or other sports.

Now eCamp can also be used on mobile devices. Perfect for during the camp.
Many input fields save automatically. So nice.
PDF / printing process are optimized. No more blank pages and overflowing texts.
The application is initially available in German, French and English. More languages are possible.
Create templates for different types of blocks, with block sequence, red thread, safety concept, etc.
Assign your material to the activity or camp section.
Team management has been improved and simplified.
Developed by a small group of enthusiastic Scouts and supported by the Swiss Guide and Scouts Movement.
You can see the current status on GitHub.
The initial development phase is done. All features for the MVP: Camp are available (feature-complete).
This version serves as a temporary test version, so it still contains some bugs and complicated user interfaces. The data entered on this version will be deleted after this phase.
Isolated bugs. As of this version, however, the database is no longer reset. Can be used for real but not time-critical camp planning. The limited number of beta testers must expect maintenance interruptions.
From this version onwards, eCamp v3 will be free to use for everyone. All essential features of eCamp v2 are available for camp planning. Course planning will not yet be implemented for this version.
After MVP: Camp we will focus on the features of course planning.
Only after the launch of MVP: Course will we devote ourselves to the development of additional features that are not included in eCamp v2. For the time being, we will therefore not accept feature requests.

Questions & Answers
How secure is my data at eCamp?
In addition to the development, the core team also maintains a freely usable instance under this page (login). The server is operated as a best-effort. For the operation of the server we use modern cloud solutions. This includes regular backups and server updates. Nevertheless we cannot guarantee uninterrupted availability.
What will happen to eCamp v2?
The original eCamp version 2 can be used at https://ecamp.pfadiluzern.ch until further notice. However, the code is getting old and difficult to maintain. For a long time there has been no further development for eCamp v2 except for critical bug fixes. No data is migrated from v2 to v3.
