24th August- Sports day for all campers!!
We kicked off today with languages in the morning, followed by a delicious Thai lunch! After eating, the pioneers split into 3 different groups and rotated between mountain biking, tennis and football. Everyone g ot stuck in and had a go at every sport, encouraging others along that hadn’t tried a particular sport before which was great to see.
Explorers headed to Sembrancher for an afternoon of rock climbing. Despite the sudden spurt of rain, everyone kept high spirits and had a go at climbing. Some have even managed to achieve their Les Elfes level 3 climbing qualification!
Discoveries also had a fun afternoon involving hiking and mountain biking! On the hike, Ruby the team leader set the challenge of who could find a wild blueberry first! One of the Chinese campers Isabella was the winner! We also made bouquets of wild flowers and played ‘spot the bull’ (which no one ever won as weirdly today there was not a single bull in sight in the Verbier hills!)
In the evening, the pioneers enjoyed a meal out at a pizza restaurant in Verbier, explorers played ‘The Apprenctice’ and discoveries did the ‘Bin Bag Fashion Show’!

11th August – Aqua Park, Bridge Swinging, Lazer Tag and Prize Giving
For a lot of our campers it was sadly their last day at les elfes but we’ve definitely ended on a high! For our discovery and explorers they were straight off to the Aqua Park and had an amazing time splashing around, chilling in the lazy river and whizzing down the slides. Our Pioneers pushed themselves out of their comfort zones and loved bridge swinging and a hike to the waterfall! After they got competitive in a game of lazer tag.
This evening after packing we had an emotional goodbye to all our children at our prize giving but did give out a lot of prizes!! We had most improved campers, star campers and winners of all our games. Well done everyone, we hope you’ve all had an amazing time and we hope to see you again soon!

Saturday 5th October – International Day, Boys v Girls, Dine Out
It has been a beautiful sunny day here in Verbier and another exciting day for our campers. We began with languages before having an International feast to celebrate having lots of different nationalities here. Everyone enjoyed lots of food from all over the world! This afternoon in our groups we made presentations about the countries we are from so we could share with others the different cultures, and funny facts! It was really interesting and everyone got involved which was great to see.
This evening our Discovery group had a scavenger hunt around the grounds finding different objects and photos which was amazing and very competitive. The Explorers had a Boys v Girls game show with lots of different challenges and games to complete with both teams performing brilliantly! The Pioneers spent the evening dining out in town at the local Italian restaurant which was nice and chilled with some tasty food. It has been a wonderful day and we are all looking forward to tomorrow.
