Baden Powell’s dream and his leadership legacy come together in Kandersteg… Join us for this special KISC Centenary WoodBadge Training in May 2023.
This year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Kandersteg International Scout Centre –KISC. As part of the celebrations, a special Wood Badge Training (2 Beads) will take place in an international environment in the Swiss Alps. We are delighted to invite Adult Scout Leaders from your NSO/NSA to the Wood Badge Training.
The key purpose of the Wood Badge Training is to provide Adults with the means to make a significant contribution to accomplishing the Mission of Scouting. The Wood Badge is an indicator of high-level training competences, quality training systems, and individual opportunities for development within Scouting. During this training the participants will acquire and/ or further develop competences to better perform in different roles/ positions in Scouting, and in other aspects of their lives.
During this 5-day event, the Wood Badge training will support the development of competencies in the following topics: Scouting (fundamentals) essentials, Leadership and Team Management, Project Management, Communicating meaningfully, and Adult Development. All the content we will provide will be tailored especially for participants, taking into consideration their diverse backgrounds, abilities, relevant experience, skills, knowledge, and educational backgrounds. It will be a challenging, stimulating, and inclusive learning opportunity for our Adult Scout Leaders.
The training will be delivered in English.
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.
