Go BackKanderJam: Alpine Link to the World Jamboree
On the 27th of July 2007 12 Fife explorer Scouts set off with their 6 leaders for a two week international Scout Jamboree at Kandersteg International Scout Centre; KISC, in Switzerland, where they were to have many new experiences and adventures.

The 27th was a day made up mainly of travelling; starting at around 3am from Edinburgh airport, the group boarded their first flight to London Gatwick. After a short change over at Gatwick, the group were soon on their way to Geneva, along with other scouts from Cheshire.

The group had an interesting landing at Geneva, having to “go around” just moments before landing due to a problem on the ground. After a few aerial tours of Geneva, the plane was eventually given permission to land; albeit without four of the group’s bags!

Due to the problems in collecting baggage the group missed their train and had to wait a few hours in Geneva before catching the train onwards and upwards to KISC.

The group’s arrival in Kandersteg was a memorable experience; being the first time many of the explorers and leaders had been in the Alps let alone the small Swiss town!

In true explorer Scout style the first activity was to have dinner; after this it was on to checking into the Dutch and Temperance rooms in the centre`s old chalet and having a relaxing evening after a whopping 15hours of travelling!
