The 2nd Attenborough’s Scout Troop has enjoyed a surge in membership over the past 15 months, due in no small way to a new enhanced fun-packed programme of activities each week.

Their international camp in the Netherlands in 2018 has been followed up by another international camp this year (2019) at Kandersteg in Switzerland.

Kandersteg International Scout Centre celebrated its centenary in 2013 and continues the tradition of offering a permanent Mini-Jamboree for scouts from all around the word
