You must be over 18 on the 17 October and a current member of The Scout Association and, if you are under 25, then participants might be able to count the week towards their QSA or DofE Gold Award. Please complete the attached application form and return it no later 20 July 2015.

The general plan is that those selected would arrive at KISC on Saturday with Sunday free to do what you want enjoying the facilities of KISC and the surrounding area, but with a “Meet the Pinkies !” session in the evening.

Work starts, promptly at 08:00 – 17:00 on Monday to Wednesday and to 12:00 on Thursday. You do get a 2-hour lunch break and two 15 minute breaks mid-morning and mid-afternoon!

Work will be carried out in the Grounds, Maintenance and House areas of the Centre, so could take place indoors or outdoors, as allocated by the KISC Grounds Manager (more specific details to follow)

The rest of the time is free, although there is expected to be a party on the second Saturday evening, with departure the next day – after an extra hour in bed, as that’s the night the clocks go back throughout Europe.

All accommodation and food is free from arrival on Saturday and departure the following Sunday, although extra overnights are possible before or after the week, but will need to be booked in advance with KISC and paid for.

You will need to arrange for your own travel to and from KISC and travel insurance. Advice will be given to those chosen on travel alternatives; the discounted rail tickets available from the airports to and from Kandersteg and insurance covering your trip.

Please contact Keyur Patel with any questions.

To apply use the UK Work Party Application Form

Closing date for applications Monday 20th July.
