New Scout Year 2015-2016 Update

On Monday 7th September 2015 our troop welcomed new Scouts and their parents during the Registration evening for the coming year 2015-2016.

Our first Troop meeting will be held on Monday 14th September at La Chataigneraie International School in Founex. We are expecting all new and existing Scout members to attend and we request parents of ALL our Scouts to also be present that same evening for a parent meeting.

If you missed signing up on the Registration evening, it’s never too late to join. You can come along to a Troop meeting and you can start your registration on the spot!

August 2015 update

We’re pleased to announce that a new scouting year is just around the corner! Have a look at some photos of some of the more recent activities some of our scouts have been involved in, including white-water rafting in the French Alps, summer camp in Kandersteg, Switzerland, and the National Youth Leadership Training camp at Gilwell Park in England.

The Scout year 2015-16 is starting to take shape and our calendar of activities for the year has now been posted. Note that our registration evening takes place on Monday, September 7 at La Chataigneraie International School, Chemin de la Ferme 2, Founex. Are you up to the challenge of being a Boy Scout? New members are always welcome. Come and join the fun!

Snowshoe to Rochefort

This weekend we went snowshoing to the Rochefort cabin near St Cergue.

This year it was very hard because we had to make the trail after a night of strong snow fall. When we got there we had lots of fun with games and stuff.

The next morning we all wanted to stay and play in the snow but we had to leave.

The Klondike Derby

The Klondike Derby in Kanderstag was great! On Friday night when we arrived there was no snow – green grass everywhere, but at 8 pm it started to snow and at 10 pm there was already 10 cm. It kept on snowing all night, by the next morning there was more than 50 cm, and it continued to snow all day. The Derby was great and the activities were very fun although it was really cold. The meals were good and Saturday night the campfire event was a bit boring but there were some good skits. The next morning the young scouts said that the sled run was boring until we got to the steep part. Then everyone found it great fun! Everybody wanted to stay but in the end we had to leave. Can’t wait until next year!
