Kandersteg Winter Adventure

Every few years over 100 Scouts and Guides from Birmingham travel to the Alps in Switzerland for a week of winter adventure in Kandersteg at the International Scout Centre. The week is packed with activities including three days skiing, snow shoeing, sledging down the mountain, curling, ice skating and a full evening programme too! We’re delighted that we’ll be returning in February 2017.
