Set in the heart of the Swiss Alps and offering a vision of what the world could be, Kandersteg International Scout Centre (KISC) is a magical place. It brings together young people from different nationalities and diverse cultures and backgrounds to experience high adventure and international friendship, inspire each other, and create a better world.
Scouts from all around travel to Kandersteg to visit the Permanent Mini Jamboree and the Chalet soon becomes the home of the 1st Rover Moot creating peace and friendships.
I am proud that our Movement has a World Scout Centre permanently delivering Baden-Powell’s dream of a Permanent Mini Jamboree. Year in, year out. I invite you to support this truly unique place to help more scouts to ‘Live the Dream”.
I would like to wholeheartedly encourage you to support this unique place. Your contribution will help provide educational experiences, great adventures and leadership opportunities for thousands of Scouts from around the world every year.
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.
Throughout the year, we will gather in Kandersteg to celebrate 100 years of inspiring young people to create a better world.
Our vision is that the centenary will be the beginning of the next 100 years with Baden-Powell’s dream of a Permanent Mini Jamboree.
Kandersteg International Scout Centre has been run by volunteers since 1923. Join the team that creates lifelong memories.
