Background:
Edvard Munch (1863 – 1944) was born in Engelaug in Løten. Although the family moved to Oslo, they had a good relationship with friends here, as Edvard often visited during the summers. As a youngster Edvard drew many sketches from the area and he took inspiration from the beautiful landscape.

Camp Munch 2018 is supported by Sparebankstiftelsen DNB and Hedmark Fylkeskommune.
