Join Derbyshire Scout Network on an international adventure to the Kandersteg International Scout Centre in the heart of the Swiss Alps.
In August 2011, we'll be taking a coach load of Network members camping for a week, fully catered, in our first ever large scale county-organised trip abroad. You could be a part of it, with the opportunity to take part in a wide range of adventurous activities in beautiful surrounds and alongside other Scouts from around the world. You could experience everything from glacier walking, to fishing in a mountain lake, or even paragliding over the peaks. Sample some genuine Swiss culture - and their chocolates and cheese too, of course!

Just a little update on Kanderstag 2011. We have decided to go using the train. This will save us a little on transport, and will cut the overall journey time many hours. Who would rather spend 24 hours on a sweaty coach, rather than 19 hours on 6 different trains, cutting through the brilliant scenery on the way to Switzerland??!! The train changes will also break up the travel for us, and give us many opportunities to buy food and drink, and have decent toilets.
With regards to payments, we understand that people have had a lack of information since originally hearing of this.
- By now all of you should have paid your £100 deposit.
- By the beginning of August, please can you have paid your second deposit of £150.
- By the beginning of October, the third £150 will be due.
- By the beginning of February 2011 another £150 will be due.
- At the beginning of June 2011 you will have to pay the final balance. This could be up to £150, depending on how much fundraising you have taken part in.
