Venturing to the Top-of-Europe, taking on the Ultimate-Canyoning in the Alps, White Water Rafting, Swimming in freezing-cold glacial lakes, swinging from tree-to-tree at the High-Ropes Park and taking in the Swiss-Culture in Switzerland’s Capital City, Bern… I don’t know about you but it makes me wish I was back on Scout Camp again!!!
So the week is near an end but what an incredible time all the groups have had here in Switzerland! The whole week has been packed with activities, with all of the scouts and explorers having had new experiences and taken on challenges wildly different to anything they may have encountered before.
The Ultimate Canyoning sounded absolutely amazing as we heard all the stories from the network who had been doing it yesterday, telling stories of huge jumps into pools of water and holding onto rock ledges before dropping into the water metres below. The scouts which went to the High-Ropes park had a great time and really enjoyed challenging themselves on the jumps, zipwires and generally being so high off the ground!
Tonight sees quite possibly one of the biggest campfire’s KISC has ever seen, with around 800 people from all over the world sharing their songs, skits and culture to the vast audience. For any groups staying onsite, it is a spectacle definitely not to be missed!
