A misty morning welcomed the campers of Les Elfes to their final day of the session. Of course excitement was in the air, as final day is often reported as the best day. After a wonderful breakfast spirits were lifted even more as the cloud and fog lifted and Verbier was greeted with sun. With the temperatures up and energy high the 3 groups of Les Elfes parted ways to participate in their final day activities.
Our youngest and middle ages groups, Discoveries and Explorers hopped on to buses to drive to Lake Geneva to enjoy a full day at the lake. There they were able to do about every water sport under the sun, each having a chance to go tubing, banana boating, playing on the inflatables, water slides, or even just simple swimming and sunbathing. This fun packed day not only allowed the kids to enjoy one last day in the sun but allowed them time to relax and say goodbye to friends.Tired, wet but happy the campers returned back to camp at 6 to pack and get ready for prize giving.
Our oldest campers, the pioneers were able to something a little different and special. They participated in the gravity defying bridge swinging, which tested most of the kids bravery. Happily we can report the pioneers conquered those fears and all took the leap.With their adrenaline racing they then went to compete against each other in lazer tag where furious battles broke out.
After the days activities all the campers returned to camp to pack and get ready for camping. At 7 the campers met again for their last super.
After dinner, prize giving was kicked off in full swing.The night was filled with a lot of chocolate, cheering, a few words from the monitors, music video and slideshows. The kids then seperated back out into their three groups, giving everyone the chance to say goodbye to their friends and monitors and recieved their certificates.
Finally the kids are in their rooms trying to get to sleep and do some last minute packing, ready but sad for their departures tomorrow.
