July 31st is Our Chalet Birthday. Along with other festivities, "Happy Birthday" is sung in as many languages as the Our Chalet occupants know.

Swiss National Day is celebrated on August 1st.  A typical celebration is held in Adelboden.  The evening is filled with yodelers, alphorn players, bagpipers, speeches in English, Swiss German and French, and beautiful traditional Swiss dances.  There is also a parade of children, guides, scouts, performers, lanterns and flags!  As it gets dark, the sky is filled with beautiful fireworks, accompanied by cheers from the girls.  Adelboden comes alive with the Guiding and Scouting spirit.  The night comes to an end in Adelboden with an enormous circle of girls singing Taps.
