On the 22nd August 2009, 6 Scouts from 1st Normandy returned to Guildford along with 200 others from all over Surrey from the first week of the Surrey Scouts K9 Summer Expedition to Kandersteg International Scout Centre, Switzerland.
All six Scouts had a great time taking part in mountain walking, rafting, high ropes challenge and an International Barbecue and camp fire. The weather was excellent and all the Scouts took every opportunity to swim in the mountain lakes and enjoy the fantastic scenery and international friends on the camp site.
On the last day of the camp the Scouts took the 3 hour train ride up the mountains to the observation centre at 3500m just below the summit of the Jungfrau the highest Mountain in the Swiss Alps. The Scouts were able to walk out on the glacier snow field, sledge and visit the ice caves.
A great week was had by all – a camp the Scouts will always remember.
