Supporters & Ambassadors weekend 2016
We hope that you already had a chance to visit Kandersteg International Scout Centre (Switzerland), the World Scout Centre of WOSM and ‘The Permanent Mini Jamboree’. If not yet, this is your chance to see the Centre and experience its Magic!
WHEN IS IT?
We are organising a ‘Supporters & Ambassadors weekend' from the 15th until 17th of April 2016.
FOR WHO IS IT?
Fo the members of Supporters Networks, International Commissioners and everyone who is involved in Scouting on the national level.
WHY IS IT?
The aim is to bring together our current Supporters and future ones to show them more about the Centre. The objective is also to work together on how to spread the idea of The Permanent Mini Jamboree, Baden Powell’s dream! During this weekend we run many workshops, share ideas, present our work and have lot of fun. At the end of the event, everyone leaves motivated with a better idea on how to help and develop international dimensions of Scouting in your country - this by promotion the possibility of staying at KISC with a Scout group, or as a Staff member.
We expect to have fun and learn from each other. At the same time it is a chance to meet some new people with similar interests. We hope that with this weekend we can further improve our network of Supporters that will help with attending events, raising awareness of KISC, developing the Centre, etc.
