Kandersteg International Scout Centre (KISC) has a huge range of activities, with loads of options available for everyone. Whether you want to spend your time adventuring through the Swiss alps hiking and rock climbing, exploring beautiful villages and towns (the type you only see on postcards), sampling delicious local cheese and chocolate, or meeting Scouts from all over the world, we will have something for you!

There are three programme areas that KISC offers, and these will shape our time and activities there. These are:

  • High Adventure – Hiking, rock climbing, glacier walks and other adventurous activities all in the stunning Swiss Alps;
  • International Friendship – Meet, camp, eat and explore the village of Kandersteg and the surrounding area with other scouts from all around the world;
  • Eco – Learn about our impact on the globe and in particular, the precious alpine environment and how to help protect it.

There will be plenty of time for socialising in camp, gathering around massive international campfires, and taking part in KISC’s famous in-house activities, night events, competitions and challenges.
