The Founder of Scouting, Lord Baden-Powell, dreamed of one place, where Scouts can meet, live in peace and learn from each other. Our youth have dreamed of such an opportunity for most of their scouting careers and they decided to plan it before many of their scouting careers come to an end as a youth. Kandersteg is located in Switzerland in the heart of the Alps, a place full of adventure. So they have planned a week-long adventure in KISC going canyoning, river rafting, and lots of hiking. I mean this is the Alps, right? Since this is a trip of a lifetime these high adventure boys decided that since they were going to Europe why not go to London, where Boy Scouts was born and visit Brown Sea Island, stay in Lord Baden-Powell's home which is now a Scout Hostel. These high adventure boys didn't stop there, they also added a trip to Rome in all of this and this is where the Adult Leaders and Parents allowed it to stop. So the full plan of this amazing trip looks like this: Fly into Rome, Italy stay for 3 days, take the train to Switzerland to stay at the KISC for a week, take the train to London, England and check out the sites for 3 days and fly home.
