Welcome to the website for South Kilworth Village


November 2nd, 2017 in Notice Board by admin

Max Taylor is holding a quiz night on 12th November at 5pm White Hart pub in to raise money for himself and his fellow Explorers and Scouts from the South Leicestershire District to go to Kandersteg International Scout Centre.

Please can as many of you as possible join us to ensure this is successful event, hopefully this will be a really
fun evening.

A little bit about the charity – For a week in August 2018 volunteer leaders from across the Scout District of South Leicester are taking nearly 50 11 – 17 year old Scouts and Explorer Scouts to the Kandersteg International Scout Centre in the Swiss Alps to mix with likeminded people from other countries and cultures.

The KISC campsite is regularly used by Scouts and Guides from over 40 nationalities which provides many opportunities to mix with people without a shared language. All the on-site activities the young people are involved in will involve other young people from other groups; they will be given task to complete, which could be a team sport, game or activity and will have to work out how to communicate so they can achieve it. They will share experiences and make new friends. It is likely that several of the South Leicester scout groups will develop links to groups in other countries too which will help the young people who have not been able to attend the camp.

Off-site activities will include a more cultural visit to a nearby town or city, so the Young People can develop their understanding of the Swiss and their culture. There will also be more adventurous activities which are unique to the Alps, encouraging the Young People to achieve more. The whole experience will contribute to many of their challenge and activity awards (badges) too.

The overall intention of the camp is to give each of the Young People (and their leaders) and memorable and unique experience which will remain with them for many years and hopefully make new, international friends.
