There was also be a special August 1st programme for celebrating Scouting's Sunrise. On this day, all participants hiked to Oeschinensee, a lake high above Kandersteg village, and renewed their promise together as the sun came over the mountains. On this day KanderJam Staff and participants were joined by an additional 450 Scouts from Switzerland.
We had a the International Disco for all our guests happening in the local village! The night was full of good music and dancing!
Sunday 5th / Monday 6th
Many groups participated in the first KanderJam Campfire. The event was held in our main Campfire Circle, where groups entertained each other with skits, songs and dances.
We also had our International Nights. The International Nights allow groups to bring traditional food and items from their country, and Scouting in their country, to display for and show other groups. It is a big part of our international friendship programme and usually entertaining and insightful!

On Tuesday, August 7th, KanderJam held an open day for all members of the public, whether Scouts, Guides, locals or other, to visit the Campsite and jamboree and get a feel for what is happening and to see the international atmosphere present.
