Throughout the summer months, Venture Abroad will be helping Scouts and Guides from across the UK to make their international adventures come true, with holidays to Kandersteg International Scout Centre in Switzerland. We hear from Venture Abroad Representative, Kate, about her latest adventures with 2nd Penrith Scouts.


A fantastic week has come to an end with 2nd Penrith Scouts. In their last few days they got a closer look at the mountains with a challenging, yet rewarding hike, followed by a trip to Kandersteg’s famous Oechinensee lake.



Those daring enough even braved paddling in the lake!



And of course, you can’t visit Oechinensee without having a go at some summer sledging down the Oeschinensee toboggan run!



Despite the cows stealing the scouts sunbathing spot…



They still made friends for the walk back down the mountain



What a wonderful end to a wonderful week.


Until next time 2nd Penrith Scouts! The mountains will be waiting for you.
