Ready Steady Go

Join the Our Chalet team to help prepare Our Chalet for the next busy season!

Ready Steady Go is the event for groups and individuals who:

  • Want to experience the Swiss Alps;
  • Are looking for a way to give back to Guiding and Scouting;
  • Want a short time commitment;
  • And are looking for a challenge!

Everyone is welcome to apply - previous guests and staff, and those who haven't visited us yet - you just need to be keen to lend a hand! Volunteers come from all over the world, making your experience a truly international one.
