Are you looking to spend a week in the mountains, make some new friends and doing some manual labour. Half working on various projects and the other half relaxing, sightseeing around Switzerland or just having a nice coffee and cake in the village. If the answer is yes then the UKWP UK Work Party might just be the thing for you.
The UKWP this year will be taking place from the 21st April 2018 – 29th April 2018. Please see below what an average day would look like, the ethos that the Pinkies have at KISC is to work hard and play hard. The work hard comes first, to give you an idea what the “WORK HARD” part is then imagine being on IST for a busy long weekend camp and you have some idea at what level of effort is required.

Some of the days you might be inside deep cleaning, some of the rooms, or other areas of the Centre or some of the other buildings. Both tasks you will need to have equal amount of enthusiasm, which is whatever you do “it’s awesome” why, because you’re in an amazing place.
