Dear Ex-Pinkies,

The beginning of March in Kandersteg means the days are getting longer and the weather much warmer. Outside the avalanches are coming down from all the snow this winter and slowly some signs appear that Spring is on its way. After a great and busy Winter we will end the season with Staff Day Out and welcome 8 new STS to KISC in the coming weeks. In this Ex-Staff newsletter we will first look back to 2011 and forward to Summer at KISC!

Time Out 2011

It has taken some time, but with a little delay Time Out 2011 is out and ready for you to download! If you have been Staff in 2011 take a stroll back memory lane and rewitness some of the key moments of your time here. If you haven't, then this is your chance to catch up with the madness that has been going on at KISC during your absence! And who knows, maybe reading about what others have been up to will make you want to come back here.

You can download Time Out 2011 in both a normal and a High Quality here in the Ex-Staff section of the website. Have fun reading!

Summer at KISC!

This Summer we will be looking for extra Staff to help run the Centre for the busiest part of the year (July and August) to make sure the thousands of Scouts and Guides that will be visiting us have a summer camp of a lifetime. Isn't it time you had a look at coming back in pink or green to KISC and living the dream once again? We are looking for High Season Staff in the following areas:

  • 2-4 HSS will work in Programme (all aspects), 
  • 3 HSS will work in Guest Services (Shop, Catering, House)
  • 2 HSS in Campsite and
  • 1 in Grounds/Maintenance

If you want to be HSS you should be available between mid July until mid August. If you are interested please complete the application form and return it to Jonathan (UK) by 31st March 2012. In your application please state what dates you are available. We will be looking for some people for shorter and longer periods.


Snow and Ice Helpers

We're starting to plan our Snow & Ice Programme and require some enthusiastic Ex-Staff to be Snow & Ice Helpers. We are looking for people who have some experience with snow, ice or travelling on glaciers or think they will be able to pick up these skills fast. If you also think that you'd be able to teach these skills to Scouts then this is your chance. The dates are from the 2nd July until the 26th August. If the dates are not suitable then please apply stating availability.

If you are interested please send an email to Melanie (UK) by the 31st March stating:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Season Worked
  • Postal Address
  • Qualities which make you suitable for the position (including any relevant experience)
  • Why you would like to be a Snow and Ice Helper

House Assistant and Administration Assistant Positions

We are looking for applicants for the roles of House Assistant and Administration Assistant. If you are looking for a longer term commitment in Kandersteg then we would like to hear from you! All the details are here.

If you would like to apply or have questions please contact me!

Catering Helpers for May and September

Due to some of our LTS starting slightly later than planned we are looking for some help in Catering in the months of May and September. If you know your way around the kitchen, are enthusiastic about serving good food and are available in either of these months please let Jonathan (UK) know by email.

Don't forget to check out the Ex-Staff section of the website for details of all the opportunities available to ex-pinkies and use the search function to get back in contact with the pinkies from your season. If you have forgotten your login details please send me an email.

Yours in Scouting,
