IRW Winter 2016 - Info
If you're coming to International Rover Week this winter 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 Winter 2016 starts on Sunday, 27th of December 2016 until Monday, 2nd of January 2017. During your time at the permanent Mini-Jamboree, you will live together with the other participants in two of the rooms in the Old Chalet at KISC. During the entire week, special Winter 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 in the Chalet, as well as all meals and packed lunch while you’re on activities. 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 Winter 2016 badge and Scarf in there! Included in the price as well, a traditional Swiss dinner during your stay and participation on New Years Evening 2016 including a big buffet and a party. It's 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! A special discount on the week for participants from A, B and C countries according to the WOSM categorisation is possible.
