Nordic Patrol 5-kamp (NP5K) is usually held in may each year, if there is a Nordtreff camp, the NPK5 will be held there.
Two patrols from each country can compete, unless the NP5K is at a Nordtreff camp – then there are no real limit in patrols that can compete, but only two patroles from each country can compete and win the backpack.
There are 5 disciplines at the 5-kamp
