Our chalet Past and present

How we got here

In 1929, the World Committee of WAGGGS decided that a World Centre should be built for all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts of the world to share.
Since the founding of Our Chalet in 1932, the Centre has been an international home in the Swiss Alps. A place where everybody can find challenge, adventure, and ‘peace for the soul’ while developing international friendships.
