After 10 years of "service" the database of European Scout centres is going through a process of modernisation and updates. This will last until 1 February 2013 and no changes would be possible until that date. Thank you for understanding and we're looking forward to be able to promote more and better Scout Centres across the Region.

International Scout Centre is beautifully situated in the heart of the
Swiss Alps, only 65 km south of Bern, the capital of Switzerland. The
nearest airports are Zürich and Geneva which are about 3 hours
by train, and Belp (Bern) which is only an hour away.
The Centre is easily reached by train, the local station being only 2 km away. In the high seasons a bus runs regularly from the station to the Centre, but we can also arrange to pick you up at the station.
|Being the only World Scout
Centre, the staff at Kandersteg International Scout Centre is truly
international. You will work with Scouts and Guides from many different
countries and continents, and serve guests from all over the world. In
2008, the Centre welcomed 11’000 guests from about 40
different countries and 35 nationalities and 5 continents were
represented on staff. The work you will do depends very much on the
time of the year.
In spring we concentrate on preparing for the summer and maintaining the buildings for 350 people and the campsite for 1400 people. In summer, the work is much more focused on serving the thousands of guests by keeping the campsite toilets clean, running the shop, serving food, providing activities etc.
The Centre programme is based on three main themes: International Friendship, Alpine High Adventure and Environment. All volunteers will run daily activities such as hikes, crafts, nature workshops and climbing workshops as well as the evening programme including campfires and games evenings.
You will share a room with two other people and have all meals served at the Centre. Other benefits include staff shirts, laundry facilities, toiletries, a weekly day off and a Staff Night Out every week. Come and help MAKE the magic that is Kandersteg!
