Kandersteg Scout Campsite www.kisc.ch

The Kandersteg Scout Centre has a campsite and several thousand m2 of land. In summer there are many activities that can be done here as well and there will be lots of other Scouts to make friends with. Why not organise or suggest to your den leader that you spend a weekend camping here. (If you do come, bring a hammer and expect to bend some tent pegs as the ground the campsite was built on was created from the rocks extracted from the Lotschberg railway tunnel, and as a result isn’t particularily giving. (also don’t pitch your tent in a depression, if it rains you’ll find yourself sleeping in a pond.
