Guest Kitchen renewals
Guest at the Centre can choose to have full catering service provided or to cater on their own. For this, KISC offers five kitchens for guests’ use. This is a very popular offer, and the guest kitchens are therefore heavily used. They consequently need repairs and replacement from time to time. Support the culinary experience of our guests by sponsoring one of the kitchens for CHF 30’000,–.
Guest Kitchen roof
Groups using our guest kitchens have to sit and eat somewhere. Until now the Centre has provided temporary tents in front of the building during Summer to shelter eating guests from bad weather. For a long time, we have wanted to offer a more permanent and more reliable solution.
A permanent roof over the plaza in front of the guest kitchens, integrated with the buildings around which offers additional terrace space and more space overall for guests, is the solution. Support this valuable idea!
Enlarge Guest Kitchens
Space to expand the buildings for more quality and capacity is rare on the Centre’s premises because of building regulations. However, we have the opportunity to expand the guest kitchen building.
We want to provide more capacity to meet the increasing demand by adding a second floor to create more common room for guest groups. Cook on the ground floor and enjoy dinner year-round in the mountains with a view, while also being protected against lousy weather!
What is KISC?
Kandersteg International Scout Centre’s story began at the World Scout Jamboree in London in 1920. Here, Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, spoke of his dream of a place where Scouts from all over the world could meet, learn from each other and live in peace all year round.
Every year, KISC is host to 12’000 guests from all around the globe, totalling to around 70’000 overnights, meaning the Centre is one of the largest tourist facilities in the Bernese Oberland.
