Online service of the week: Archive of past scouting events at

March 13th, 2013 No comments

The Kandersteg International Scout Center in northern Switzerland is based upon Lord Baden Powell’s wish to establish a permanent place where scouts from all over can meet.

The center has had a long history that spans as far back as the 1920s.

The website contains an event archive describing events as early as 2007. This section provides a pretty good idea about recent activities at the Center and what visitors should expect from their visit while in Kandersteg.

Another unique feature of the website is that all of the sections we checked are translated into German, Italian, French and English and this allows for a wider scout audience.

To access the Event Archive, select ‘Events’ from the main website menu and then ‘Event Archive’ from the left side menu.

Donations, Descriptions about Short Term and Long Term staff options, an award section detailing the types of badges that can be earned at the center.
