To ensure that we are running safe activities, our staff must be trained and assessed before guiding activities with guests. Staff receive internal training at KISC, which focuses on group management, leadership skills and ensuring the best scouting experience. Additionally, some of the high adventure activities require external training and assessment. We believe that quality training and our staff’s ongoing development will increase both the staff and guests experience.
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.
