Well my daughter (12) is very involved in the Pfadi, but it is all in Swiss German as far as I know.

I'm not sure about a Bern Pfadi but I assume there is one. I do know however a Pfadi from Burgdorf which isn't so far away.

I guess you are looking for a regular group but you could take a trip out to KISC in Kandersteg (Berner Oberland). It's the international scout centre in Switzerland and the language is English.

Re: Scouting in Bern ???

Here you go.
As an ex-scout (not being at aaredrache though) Im happy to see people who want to join nowadays.
There shouldn't be a problem if you speak English; I'm sure they would be more than happy to welcome a new member.
On your side, it will give you the opportunity to learn German without having to take classes...

Re: Scouting in Bern ???

Hi,

The two main scout groups In Bern are Patria and Schwyzerstärn. I was active in Patria, both groups are dialect speaking but it sounds you are a bit older and English is not an issue with the leaders. Also Patria is fairly big in the Kirchenfeld (diplomatic neighborhood) and as such has had its share of expat children.

Here the respective websites:

http://www.pfadipatria.com
http://www.schwyzerstaern.ch

and the cantonal site:
http://www.pfadibern.ch/kanton/abteilungen/

good luck,
Philly

Re: Scouting in Bern ???

Hello dunjaco!

this year I am in the same situation as you! I've been scout for 11 years of my life and I'd really love to find a scout group in Bern! And I do not speak any German either

Did you find any at last? Do you know how can I contact them?

thanks a Looot!!

Lara
