Activity overview

Volunteer your skills, talent and energy for one week, to help us keep Baden Powell's dream of a Permanent Mini Jamboree alive

Our international Work Party is an chance to volunteer your skills, talent and energy to the World Scout Centre for one week. You'll be supporting our Grounds and House team as we prepares the centre for the winter; chopping wood, clearing leaves and tidying up the campsite.

In exchange, you will get to meet and hang out with Pinkies from all around the world, experience Swiss culture (and its delicious food), as well as enjoy the beautiful nature and mountains that surrounds the centre.


The Work Party will take place from 24 October - 1 November 2020 and encompass 4-days of work and 4 days where you are able to explore the local area and enjoy your surroundings.


Overnight acommodation for 8-nights is included for free, as well as access to a guest kitchen where you are able to self-cater. Alternatively, we also offer catering at 70CHF per person (including breakfast, lunch and dinner).

  • At least 18 years old on 24 October 2020
