Alive with Scouting spirit and endless adventure
A sweeping scene of Swiss mountains, glacial waterfalls and never-ending hiking trails, Switzerland is the definition of rural beauty. And where better to experience it all than KISC? As the home of international friendship, this Mini Jamboree is full of Scouting spirit and camp camaraderie. Spend your days hiking, biking and river rafting, then lap up the KISC life at night with Scout groups from around the world at the International Campfire. Ultimately, a Scout trip to Switzerland is as soul-warming as it is adventurous.
