The 'Scouts International Home' Association was founded with the Centre in 1923 and has since then developed into the 'Kandersteg International Scout Centre' Association. For more than 95 years, hundreds of people have been Members of the Kandersteg Association and helped to support the Centre. Among the first members were Lord Baden-Powell of Gilwell and Walter von Bonstetten, key founders of the Centre, as well as Colonel Kenneth MacIntosh, an American who was very supportive of the Centre, and J.S. Wilson, famous as the warden of Gilwell Park. Today, you have also a chance to join these Members and sign under the further development of the Centre.

Short Term Staff Winter 2019
Sometimes being far from home, from your family and the ones you love might not be easy but at the end of the day here, you find everything that you’ve been looking for: new experiences, adventures, friendship a pinkie family that will be there for you in the moment you need it the most. The past three months in this magical place taught me a lot of things that for sure I will be able to apply in my personal and professional life, as it has also opened my mind to a world full of possibilities and adventures. By coming here I can say that it is really easy to fall in love with the views, the mountains, the people, the village and all the different activities. Since the moment you go through the main door you feel all those vibes that make you feel at home and that’s what KISC has become to me: home. KISC is the place where you love what you do (as Bruce Dickinson said “Life is too short to short to do the things you don’t love doing”), the place that shows you that magic truly exists.
