Winter Short Term Staff
There is a hidden place in the beautiful Swiss Alps that allows you to live Scouting as you have never done before. It is a hidden place in the beautiful Swiss Alps that allows you to live Scouting as you have never done before. My dream started in December when I began as a Winter Short Term Staff. As soon as I arrived, I was astonished not only because of the wonderful landscape but also by the Scout life that you experience. It is a place where you share breakfast with a Spanish fellow, then work with a Brazilian and end up having dinner with a Scout from the United States. And we all have one thing in common – Scouting. Throughout my time here, I was able to do many activities I never dreamt of. I learnt how to ski, I hiked to the top of a mountain at -10ºC and played curling. I also met people from many countries with traditions and habits so different that would be impossible to describe them all. I left with much more than what I brought. Maybe, my backpack weights the same, but the experiences and friendships don’t. There are things that only a Scout can understand, and this is one of those. I encourage you to be brave, live the dream and to build a Better World together!
