If you're coming to International Rover Week this Summer from any of the Swiss airports, you can book a "Scout Transfer Ticket", a return train / bus ticket from any Swiss Airport or Border Crossing to Kandersteg. These tickets cost CHF 82 return, saving you 40% compared to regular Swiss train prices. For further information, please visit our Travelling by Train webpage, but note these tickets need to be ordered in advance.
International Rover Week 2015 starts on Tuesday, 28th of July until Saturday, 8th of August 2015. The dates fall on the same dates as the World Scout Jamboree in Japan this year, and we want to be your Alpine link to the World Scout Jamboree! During your time at the permanent Mini-Jamboree, you will live together with the other participants in tents on the KISC Campsite. Tents as well as basic campsite equipment will be provided for you! During the 12-day event, you will spend one night away from the Campsite, in a mountain hut high in the Swiss alps. During the entire week, special Rover Week Helpers will take care of you, ready to answer any questions, help out with the programme and support you in planning activities on your free day. They'll also take part in all of the programme activities offered by the Centre and make sure you'll have the best possible experience in Kandersteg!
The cost for the entire week is set at the special price of only CHF 400 Swiss Francs. Included in this price is your accommodation on the Campsite, tents and basic Campsite equipment, as well as packed lunch while you’re on activities and ingredients to cook your own meals. The activities offered during the week by the Centre in the International Rover Week's programme are included in the price as well, except for any additional activities you choose to organise for yourself on free days. To round the package off, we've also put an International Rover Week badge and Scarf in there! Included in the price as well, is the BBQ, a traditional Swiss dinner during your stay and participation in August 1st, Swiss National Day and Scouting Founders Day: always a big favourite amongst KISC guests!
We want as many Scouts from far-away countries and other continents as possible to join in the Rover Week and discover the magic of Kandersteg! Special discounts have been created to support them! A special discount on the week for participants from A, B and C countries according to the WOSM categorisation is possible.
