Knutsford Scouts – Kandersteg 4th – 11th August 2018
Knutsford District Scouts are off to the Kandersteg International Scout Centre in beautiful Switzerland. Kandersteg is a year-round home of world scouting. Each year, 12,000 scouts visit from over 40 countries to take part in a huge range of activities and to enjoy the astonishing landscape. This will be the fourth time that we have organised a trip to Kandersteg and this time we are inviting the whole district to come along.
Kandersteg International Scout Centre (KISC) is a very special place. When scouts were started in 1907 by Lord Baden Powell they quickly took the world by storm. In 1920 they held the first ever Jamboree, a gathering of thousands of scouts from around the world. The event was such a success that Baden Powell wanted a place to hold a permanent mini Jamboree. In 1922 he chose Kandersteg in Switzerland and setup this amazing place. Since then scouts from just about every country in the world have visited. On an average summer week there are more than twenty countries represented.
