Current Fundraising Projects
Here you can find some of the exciting fundraising projects currently taking place to help keep the Permanent Mini Jamboree alive!
New Staff Accommodation
Your support for financing the building of additional permanent staff quarters, will help KISC sustainably, because using operational funds each year to rent accommodation on the outside market, would no longer be required. This saving can then be used to support funding of the programme offered to the visiting scout guests on an annual basis
Donations and long-term interest-free loans
To ensure financial stability for the Centre, we are looking to secure sufficient financial support to make the Centre debt-free.
KISC Staff Training
To ensure that we are running safe activities, our staff must be trained and assessed before guiding activities with guests.
Having a climbing/activity tower on the campsite will enable us to provide exciting high adventure activities year-round.
Development of new programme related to the Sustainable Development Goals
While KISC has been very active in meeting the SDGs, new and innovative programme supporting the realisation of the goals, still needs to be developed.
Programme materials and equipment
To put any idea into action, the programme needs tools and materials such as ropes, climbing gear, GPS, construction wood, games equipment, etc.
Programme support provides Scouts and Guides with the opportunity to participate in adventures in the Alps.
Old and New Chalet refurbishing and renovations
Dating back to the construction of the first Lötschberg Tunnel, the Old Chalet is the Centre’s historic centre point. The New Chalet was built by volunteers in the 90's. They both need some love.
The essential element of the Centre is our campsite. For what is KISC without good camping? The 55 individual campsites can host a total of approx. 1500 guests at any one time.
Chalet Kreuz renovation
With the purchase of Chalet Kreuz in 2019 we could expand and save on staff accommodation.
Sunneblick building renovation and improvement
The Sunneblick is a traditional Swiss chalet that completes the ensemble of the Centre’s main buildings on the banks of the Kander river.
Refurbishing and renovation of the Kanderlodge
Kanderlodge is the newest addition to the Centre. However, it is almost 15 years since it was built, and it needs refurbishing.
Guest Kitchen renewals and extensions
Guest at the Centre can choose to cater on their own, using one of our five guest kitchens for guests.
