Membership and Funding Seminar
Over 40 delegates from 26 different countries
attended Our Caba˝a's recent Membership and
Funding seminar.
The seminar covered topics such as recruiting
and retaining members, promoting the WAGGGS
mission and WAGGGS projects and initiatives. It
helped leaders to develop strategies and
activities to encourage more girls and young
women to join the Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting
movement and to help improve Guiding and
Scouting quality at a local, national and
international level.
Award-winners visit Sangam
Members of the Rani Laxmibi Guide Company of
Pune, who won a WAGGGS FAO Award in
2004, were honoured guests during the recent
Healing Touch event at Sangam.
The Guide Company won the award for a
project they had developed to teach nutrition
and health care to women and young children in
rural regions of the Maharashtra State. They
presented their award-winning project to
Sangam's international guests and staff during
the event that focused on health care in India.
Christmas party for Our Chalet's
One of the many traditions at Our Chalet is the
annual Christmas carol service for neighbouring
families, which has been held every year since
the centre was built in 1932.
The special evening was attended by around 70
people and included offerings from local
musicians, presentations in German from the
Chalet staff and volunteers, and entertainment
from local children.
Pax Lodge visits Pax Hill
Every year Pax Lodge holds a special session for
Trefoil Guild members and last November the
participants went on a mystery tour to the small
village of Bentley. As they approached, some of
the ladies guessed that their visit was to Pax Hill
where Lord and Lady Baden-Powell and their
family lived from 1919 to 1939.
Pax Hill is now a nursing home and the staff
there offered a warm welcome. The ladies
enjoyed tea and biscuits in the music room and
toured the house and grounds.
Will I see an Elephant at Sangam?
You might see an elephant wandering down the
streets of Pune although they are more commonly
seen in India's southern states. Camels, donkeys,
cows, pigs, sheep and goats are all commonly seen
on the busy Pune streets.
What's the food at Sangam like?
Food of almost all types is readily available in India. At Sangam, all of the food is
well cooked and filtered water is used to wash the fruit and vegetables. Breakfast
consists of toast, cereal, eggs and fruit. Lunch is a vegetarian Indian meal with mild
spices. Dinner is western. The food at Sangam is delicious, and the food around
town is wonderful as well.
Do you have to be 18 to stay at Sangam?
Sangam's doors are open to everyone, young and old from around the world. There
is no minimum age to participate in events, however we do ask that an adult
accompanies participants under the age of 18.
Can my husband stay with me at Our Chalet?
Our Chalet welcomes and encourages both male guests and volunteers. Whilst the
summer sessions are primarily booked by Girl Guide groups, we are open to
everyone - husbands, fathers, brothers, sons and Boy Scout groups included.
What can we do at Our Chalet in the summer?
We offer over 20 different guided walks and hikes and as many bus trips, based on
personal choice and interest. An extensive programme of extreme sports, ranging
from paragliding over the Adelboden valley to white water rafting in Interlaken, is
also extremely popular with those in search of the ultimate challenge.
Can my children learn to ski
at Our Chalet?
Adelboden is a popular winter
sports resort and last year won an
award for the best family resort in
the Alps. The Adelboden ski
school has English/French-
speaking instructors and Our
Chalet offers ski guiding to those
who can already ski, as well as a
babysitting service to families
with young children. You can also go ice skating, tobogganing, snow shoeing and
much more.
What type of rooms will we have at Pax Lodge?
Pax Lodge has 22 twin rooms, one triple room and three rooms with four beds. You
will have the option to either share with other members of your group or to share
with other session participants. Single rooms and ensuite rooms (private toilet and
shower) may be available subject to a supplement.
