Our Chalet - Swiss Alps Trip (DATES NOT CHOSEN YET = SUMMER 2020)
Summer 2020 - exact date will be chosen by group
A group of girls and adults will travel in the summer of 2020 to the Girl Guide and Girl Scout World Center Our Chalet which is located in the Swiss Alps. The group will participate in one of the center’s established programs which include visits to the woodcarver, Interlaken, Adelboden, and other locations. There will be many opportunities to hike, maybe to a glacier-fed lake for a swim or to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise. Some time is also spent in high adventure activities – a ropes course, zip-lining, orienteering and rock climbing. There will be plenty of interaction with Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from other locales and opportunities to learn about Swiss culture. They do eat a lot of cheese, and they love chocolate!
At the conclusion of the world center 8-day program the group will have the option of extending their time abroad with visits to one or more additional countries. The exact details of the trip will be planned and carried out by the group selected for the trip. Groups in the past have visited Italy, Germany, France, Spain and other parts of Switzerland. The trip can last from 10 days to 3 weeks.
