  • The first time I came to KISC, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the Swiss Alps. Then, when I reached the Centre, I was fascinated with the friendly atmosphere, the scouty feeling, the energy of the pinkies, the buzz of international friendship and the enthusiasm of so many vibrant scouts.

    Hector Robledo Cervantes
    Chairperson, World Scout Foundation
