Have you ever wondered what happened after the historic moment at the Crystal Palace when a group of girls demanded from Lord Baden Powel to have a movement established for them, just like the boy Scouts?
Since then many historical things happened which shaped the movement.
And numerous of those events happened right here, at Our Chalet in Switzerland.
- the first international Girl Guide trip
- the first international training and leadership course, Juliette Low Session
- the first WAGGGS round table conference
|Open in 1932 with a purpose of being an international gathering and training place for all Girl Guides and Girls Scouts from around the world,
Our Chalet is still a first choice of thousandsof visitors each year who are seeking genuine Guiding and Scouting spirit, international friendship and outdoor challenge & adventure just like the first vitors over 80 years ago!
