Summer Camp 2022

Summer Camps are a major part of our Scout and Explorer diary, and always consist of an activity based week, full of adventure and fun.

Over the past 10 + years we have had camps all over the UK and Europe, giving members a chance to develop independence, leadership skills and teamwork while having fun and enjoying different cultures and communities.

The 2022 Summer Camp was planned to be a return to Switzerland and the World Scout Center. This is an amazing location the site itself is a bit of a pilgrimage site for world Scouts. With several of our members, who have been through our group, joining us for what will be there final Summer Camp before heading off to University.

The Camp Starts with an early 3:00 am start, to what will be a long day of travel across Europe. Involving minibuses, planes and several trains. Using public transport is a great experience for our members with many have never flown or traveled away from home before.

We arrived at the campsite in late afternoon, with time to pitch tents and relax after the journey. Our first full day (Sunday) would be spent exploring the site and giving members a chance to meet other Scouts from around the world, with the site hosting 1000+ scouts the week we were staying. The week would be full of great adventures and chances to experience Swiss culture.

Our weeks activities:

Monday & Tuesday

Our first activity days would be our rock climbing days, with group travelling up by cable car to a great area for rock climbing and with some impressive views of the local area. Members got the opportunity to climb different faces and challenges, with instruction from the site staff. During these days we also gave members chance to explore the Kandersteg village.


Mid week point we all headed up to the large glacier lake, that made Kandersteg famous. We traveled by cable car again to the lake where they could swim in the refreshing water and relax in the great scenery.

The trip also included the mountain sled run, which is great sled run, with fantastic views or the local scenery. Before a hike down the mountain back to the village.
