Set in the mountains of Adelboden, Our Chalet has been welcoming Guides and Scouts from around the world since 1932. The Centre was the first of the five WAGGGS World Centres. Due to the impact of the COVID pandemic on global travel, Our Chalet will be closed to international Guides/Scouts in 2021, but the doors remain open for Swiss Guides and Scouts.
Whether for skiing, hiking, camping, training courses, or just a weekend away with friends, we hope Swiss Guides and Scouts will enjoy their home in the Swiss Alps.
In 2021 there will be very few staff working at Our Chalet so visiting Guides/Scouts should expect to be self-sufficient during their stay and will need to organise their own meals and activities.
All of our accommodation gives Guides/Scouts access to our outdoor areas including campfire circle, grill, and grass lawn area.
There is also the opportunity to hire additional spaces such as a conference room, small meeting room, additional sleeping spaces in other buildings or additional small kitchen.
