About Kate Knutton

Kate Knutton

“Bubbly, friendly and blonde is how I like to think my friends would describe me! I have always been involved in Scouting and Guiding, in my adult years as a Guide leader, Brown Owl, Scout Leader, and helping out with Beavers and Explorers. I took 20 of my Scouts and explorers to Belgium in summer 2012 and look forward to getting back out there and helping other groups have an amazing time.

An interesting fact about me: I love Disney a little bit too much and when I took my Scouts to Disneyland Paris I got engaged to Woody from Toy Story.”

Until next time ……

Well my time in beautiful Switzerland has come to an end. Every single group that visited was different and no program was the same which is one of the reasons I love Kandersteg; every day is a new experience and adventure.

And the adventure begins…

Yesterday, I waved good bye to North Leeds Scouts after a fantastic week exploring the stunning Kandersteg.

Until next time!



However, it’s not over yet as I welcomed Aquila explorers and Leyland scouts; both groups started their adventure with a Sunday flag break and morning meet up games.

Keeping it local North Leeds Scouts

17 Aug 17

Yesterday, North Leeds Scouts kept it local by staying in Kandersteg and taking advantage of the stunning Lake Oechinensee.


Their first stop was a cable car where even Justin Beaver (the camp mascot) enjoyed the views!



Next was the unmissable summer sledding, even the leaders couldn’t resist!














Finally, the stunning views of Lake Oeschinensee where quite a few paddled in the stunning cool waters.
























All topped off with a BBQ at camp…perfect
