Kandersteg dates, flights and programme


Hope you had a good Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year.

We have been busy booking flights, working with the staff at Kandersteg and making plans for the build-up to our trip next Summer!

Please read the following carefully and respond where necessary.


Programme Preferences

The summer programme has just been released by Kandersteg. On March 1st we have to put in a bid for the activities that we would like to do. In order to be ready for this, we have begun discussions with the programme team at Kandersteg and prepared a questionnaire for participants to state their activity preferences. Please click the link below to complete the questionnaire. Whilst completing the questionnaire, please cross reference with our attached activity guide for an explanation of each activity.

The form also asks for who young people would like to share a tent with – please refer to the attached “K17 – Flights” document for a list of everyone who is going. If you don’t currently know anyone else who is going, don’t worry, we can look at your tent grouping at the training day on 28th January.

Responses must be received by 28th January. After this we will be creating a programme, in discussion with Kandersteg, based on the responses we have received.



Dates for 2017

Further details will be sent out very early in the New Year – we will be spending the day together getting to know each other and holding a quiz night for friends and families in the evening.

In the morning, we will hold an initial briefing for parents.

An overnight camp (Friday evening – Saturday afternoon) to practice working together.

Final briefing – date TBC

We will hold a final briefing for parents in July, the date for this will be confirmed in the Spring.


Flights to/from Switzerland

We are pleased to say that we have managed to secure flights just within our budget – in order to achieve this, we have had to split between 3 different flights from two different UK airports.

All flights will arrive at and depart from Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg (BSL) in Switzerland.

Please see the sheet attached to see which flight you’re on and which airport you’re flying from.
