Catering & Programme
Once you have planned your activities it is your responsibility to make sure the meals you book with us fit in with these activities. Here at KISC, our meals are planned with activity times in mind and so it should be easy for you to plan your meals and activities together. You can book your meals with KISC as soon as you have a confirmed booking by emailing reception.
Below you will find information on what food you will need with you for the various times of activites. This helps make sure you're never on an activity with a hungry scout!
What food will you need on your activities?
HALF DAY ACTIVITIES (Challenge activities, Eco & International Friendship Workshops etc): You do not need a meal with you, as these activities will either finish at 12.00 in time for lunch, or in time for dinner at 18.00. We suggest you bring a snack, as some activities can be quite strenuous!
1 DAY ACTIVITIES (Most hikes, Winteregg climbing course, Day Trips etc): You will need a packed lunch, but you will be back in time for dinner at 18.00. If you have ordered a packed lunch from KISC, this is made during breakfast time, from 07.30 to 09.00.
OVERNIGHT ACTIVITIES (2 day hikes, hike 'n' climbs etc): You will need a packed lunch for both days. For activities staying in KISC's mountain huts, you will need to either bring your own dinner and breakfast or to book a food package. See below for details of food packages. Activites staying at the Fründenhütte or Lötschenpasshütte include a cooked dinner and breakfast.

Do you want to order food items from Catering other than spaghetti bolognaise? You can construct your own menu using the daily and weekly food order sheets. The huts are a magical place to barbeque and cook over an open fire!
Other Mountain Huts
The overnight cost for the other mountain huts you can book with us is higher because this price usually includes half board meals (dinner and breakfast). This food is cooked and served for you. All the huts have set meal times which you need to arrive by to get your meal. We will let you know these when you book the huts.
