International Scouting and Guiding Centres

In Switzerland you can find two International Scouting and Guiding Centres: Kandersteg International Scout Centre (WOSM) and Our Chalet (WAGGGS)

Kandersteg International Scout Centre

Kandersteg International Scout Centre is the World Centre of WOSM. The KISC is located in the Bernese Alps near the village of Kandersteg, 3'937ft / 1'200m above sea level. The Centre began in 1923 with Lord Baden-Powell, who, after the first World Scout Jamboree, had a dream about a place where all Scouts from all over the world could meet: the Permanent Mini Jamboree. In 1930 Baden-Powell visited the KISC. The Campsite can accommodate up to 1'400 Persons. Next to the Campsite there are the Chalet with room for 180 people, the Kanderlodge with space for 44, the Tower with capacity of 57 and the Sunneblick with 47 beds.
