In 2023, Kandersteg International Scout Centre (KISC) turns 100 and a group of Australian Scouts are heading to Switzerland to celebrate! And you could be one of them.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity (literally!), and applications open 1 November 2021.
Nestled high in the Swiss Alps, KISC is Disneyland for Scouts, a kind of permanent Jamboree. Run for Scouts, by Scouts, it offers breath-taking activities, stunning scenery, and the opportunity to create friendships with other Scouts from all over the world!
We’ll be away from 1-13 July 2023 so there’s heaps of time to get fundraising and get your hike experience and fitness up so you are ready to tackle everything the Swiss Alps can throw at you. KISC sits at the height of 1,200m above sea level so you know the hiking, climbing, rafting and swimming in the crisp mountain air is second to none!
We’re looking for older Scouts, Venturer Scouts, Rover Scouts and adult leaders from all over Australia to join the contingent. You can check if you’re eligible here.
To apply, you’ll need to have an account for the Scouts Australia Online Event Management System (OLEMS) – so check if you have one, or create a new one here. It’s best you do that NOW because if the word around town is true, this trip is going to fill up very quickly.
