Programme support provides Scouts and Guides with the opportunity to participate in adventures in the Alps; learn and engage in environmental actions; experience cultural diversity; foster unity and cooperation regardless of ethnic or religious backgrounds. Beyond our programme, the combination of our activities, services and values provides the feeling of the “Permanent Mini Jamboree“, promoting positive change. KISC gives World Scouting a place where Scouts from all over the world can live and experience the mission of Scouting together.
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.
