We woke up to a rainy, stormy morning here in Verbier. It was very exciting for all of the existing students that stayed overnight at Cabane Mt. Fort. It was much colder then expected and they even saw snow! They hiked back down to the gondola, wrapped up warmly and had lunch back at camp. After, we organized for the existing campers to go visit the circus based down in le chable. Despite the weather being overcast, they all had a great day, full of energy and stories from what there favourite act was at the circus.
Meanwhile, this morning in camp, all staff were eagerly awaiting the new arrivals for the upcoming session. We had over 80 students arriving throughout the day from Saudi Arabia, France, Brazil, Russia, United Arab Emirates and many many more countries. The campers which arrived this morning, unpacked, had a tour of camp and ate a delicious lunch of lasagne and salad. We also took the new campers for a verbier hunt, showing them the nearest shops, restaurants, bank etc. 4
In the evening, we played lots of team building and ice breaking games to helps students integrate and get to know one another. It was a blast, but the new students were very tired from there long travels, got an early night, excited about the first day of activities!
