Suisse Adventure 09
  • 1st Bedhampton Scout Group
    OVER TO BE ABLE TO JOIN IN! You will also need to
    have an Explorer Uniform!

Suisse Adventure 09
  • Its from 26th July 2009 08th August 2009, just
    over a year and a half away, this will allow
    anyone who wishes to go plenty of time to
    fundraise the money.

The Important Bit's
  • The cost for the two weeks including all
    transport (a coach for yourselves and a lorry for
    your camping and cooking kit etc) all camping
    fees, and some activities is 435.00 per person.
    (List of activities included will appear later
  • This cost does not include food which will be
    self catering (in your group) which has been
    costed at 65.00 per person for two weeks.
  • This now makes a total of 500.00 (Transport,
    food, fees and some activities).
  • Larger Light Weight tents will also be needed, so
    fundraising for equipment will also have to be
    done by all who are going.

The Fun Bit
Activities included in the
price are
  • Dawn Hike,
  • White Water Rafting
  • 1 Day Hike
  • City Day Trip
  • Open Air Swimming
  • Swiss National Day
  • International BBQ
  • Evening Entertainment.
  • Also included will be a weekend training camp in
    the UK where you will meet the other 249 campers

Activities you can do at an extra charge include
  • Paragliding,
  • Ice Climbing
  • Rock Climbing
  • Overnight expedition including a stay in a
    mountain hut (We would recommend that you have a
    go at this one as you will have a nice bed to
    sleep in for one night in a warm mountain hut
    with catering done for you!)
  • Canyoning/Hydrospeed (water activities at speed
    with little equipment, like white water rafting
    without the boat!)
  • Possible QSA Expedition (not sure what this is)
  • Via Ferrata (Climbing a rock face using ropes,
    ladders etc).

  • Bedhampton Executive has agreed that 50 of the
    money raised at ASDA can go towards your costs
    whilst the other 50 will go towards new tents
    and other equipment needed. You will need to
    show a commitment to fundraising and a record
    will be kept of who has attended bag packs and
    how many hours you have done. The more hours you
    do the quicker you will get the 400.00 needed.
    If you do not attend any of the bag packs or
    arrange any other form of fundraising and you
    still want to go then you will be asked to pay
    the full amount yourself.

The Paperwork bit
  • In January 2008 the booking form will be
    available online to print off and fill out. This
    will be collected in by the Group and a cheque
    written for (everyone who is going) the deposit.
  • The deposit will be 100.00 per person and will
    need to be with the group before we send in the
    forms. The Group is asking you to pay your own
    deposit as this will show a commitment to the
    camp and to fundraising for the other 400.00.
  • When the booking form has been received by The
    Ferny Croft office you will be sent details of
    the Suisse Adventure 09, and in this will be
    details of the extra activities along with how
    much each one will cost. This price will be in
    Swiss Francs so divide the amount by 2.2 and you
    will get the UK pound equivalent.
  • The activities you would like to do along with
    any extra money will need to be paid by December
    08 so you have a year to save or collect to pay
    for these.(These will need to be paid by you and
    not fundraised).
  • Throughout the year will be dates when the next
    instalment will need to be paid and again this
    will need to be with the group before we can pay
    Ferny Croft.
  • If you manage to fundraise all your 400.00 by
    attending the ASDA bagpack from December 20th
    -24th 07, then you will have no worries about
    raising or paying any money as you would have
    achieved your target.

The Health and Safety Bit
  • All the leaders travelling with the scouts are
    first aid trained and all the KISC (Kandersteg
    International Scout Centre) staff are first aid
    trained as well as mountain rescue trained.
  • Petrol for cookers is not permitted to travel
    with the equipment but can be arranged with the
    Suisse adventure staff beforehand and collected
    once on site, if Gas bottles are required then
    this also needs to be pre arranged with the staff
    and again can be available upon arrival.

The Journey bit
  • You will be given pre arranged coach pickup
    points and will travel by Coach to the Swiss
    alps, going by ferry to France and then
    continuing on road by coach. The journey there
    will take up the first day and the return journey
    will take up the last day (about 24 hours
    travelling each way).

The Small Print
  • Closing dates that the group will set will need
    to be adhered to as we will need to make sure
    that all the money is in before we can send any
    cheques. Please make sure that your Payments are
    prompt. Waiting for one person to pay may mean
    losing spaces for everyone.

Spaces Available
  • There are a total of 250 spaces available for the
    whole of Hampshire for Explorers and Network
    including leaders so first come with deposit and
    filled out booking form will be first served.
  • With this in mind the first closing date will be

Pocket money
  • 80.00 for the two weeks is being suggested by
    the Suisse Adventure staff. Pocket money cannot
    be fundraised.
