Welcome to the Centenary

28 December 2022 - 2 January 2023

A 100 years ago Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, started his search for a place where young people from all over the world could unite in peace. Now, in 2023, Kandersteg International Scout Centre will celebrate its 100th anniversary. The kick-off of this fantastic and once-in-a-lifetime year started during the ‘Welcome to the Centenary’ event.
