IRW Winter 2019

Activity overview

Take a chance to experience the Permanent Mini Jamboree and unforgettable New Years Eve in the breathtaking surroundings of snowy Swiss Alps!

Between the 30.12.2019 and 06.01.2020, Rovers from all around the world will gather at the World Scout Centre for one single reason: to experience the International Friendship that only Scouting can offer. During the event, you will have the chance to experience the Permanent Mini Jamboree, do a wide range of KISC best winter activities and enter the New Year with fellow Rovers.

Who can participate?

All Rovers, Rangers and Leaders, 18 to 26 years old, who are members of a National Scout Organisation recognised by WOSM or WAGGGS. You can participate individually or together with a friend. However, we limit the number of participants per country if too many people from one country apply. We do this is to ensure the cultural diversity of the event.
