Greetings from KISC!
Finally it is dry, warm(er), and sunny in Kandersteg. We are nearly at the end of the Spring season and it was everything but the 'traditional' quiet season! As staff we welcomed the World Scout Committee for a 3 day meeting, the global staff meeting of the World Scout Bureau for a week meeting, the Agora meeting (ESR), the 2nd SCENES network meeting with participants from all over the world and the staff of the WSB-European Regional Office for their traditional Staff Management Conference. Just to name a few!
At the same time the Australian Room and the neighbouring 'old' Korean Room were renovated and were possible extended. Lost off done by on the Campsite and in the grounds by staff and the Spanish & Dutch Work Parties with the International Work Party still to come.
In the weeks ahead the Chapel area on the main Campsite will be refreshed by the Verein Katholische Pfadfinder Schweiz (Association of Catholic Scouts in Switzerland) and we will celebrate the opening of the new Korean Room in the Kander-Lodge as well as the new ATAS Room (KL as well) and the Malta Room in the New Chalet. Plans are prepared for the extensive renovation of the Arabian Suite which might take place during the coming autumn.
In this short newsletter I will touch on two other subjects:
I hope you enjoyed reading this short update of what happened at the Centre in the past months and the what is planned in the months ahead.
As always you are most welcome to pay us a visit to discover the changes, the improvements, and to revive your memories. The Centre has special overnight and meal prices for Ex-Staff so why not take this opportunity!
I wish you all the best and hope to welcome many of you here at the Centre in the months ahead!
Mark Knippenberg - Director.
