Kandersteg 2022

 

Explorer Expedition to Kandersteg, Switzerland 2022

Will you be over 14 (and under 18) and an Explorer scout in the summer of 2022 ? If the answer is yes to both then you could be joining us in Kandersteg, in Southern Switzerland for a 10 day adventure of a lifetime. Romford Explorer Scouts will be retuning to the Mountains with our young people once again, having completed two successful expeditions in 2014 and 2018.

We will be based at Kandersteg International Scout camp site, described by Baden Powell as a permanent mini world jamboree. And it certainly is, during the summer, some 2000 Scouts & Guides from around the world converge on the small Swiss village for what can only be described as an adventure of a lifetime.

We will spend 9 nights, 10 days in Kandersteg at the end of July / beginning of August 2022, where you will be able to experience walking and hiking in the Swiss Alps, river rafting, swimming in an alpine lake, canyoning, high ropes and zip wires and meeting 2000 Scouts & Guides from around the world. But don’t just take our word for it. Follow the link below and watch our video of our last trip to Switzerland and get a  feel for what you could be doing next summer.

Once you have watched the video, you will find a sign up Google Form below, please complete that with your details and submit. If you are transferring over from our Croatia trip and have paid money for that, we will arrange for the balance to be moved over and will confirm with you what your payments are. If you are a new sign up, you will need to pay a £100 deposit as soon as you can to secure a place (payment details are on the Google Form).

The total cost of the Expedition is £940, a deposit of £100 is required to secure your space and the balance of £840 should be paid by 15 monthly instalments by standing order of £56 a month. Please don’t let the cost put you off, if you would like your son / daughter to attend and want to discuss aspects of finance, please drop us a line on our dedicated email address: k22@romfordscouts.org.uk
