Friday 28th August 2015 – Lake day, Prize giving

Another sunny day in Verbier! Perfect weather for day near on the lake banana boating and tubing! Kids where full of energy this morning and ready for fun!

One by one kids started to get on banana boat and tubes, some found more interesting to paddle board or water ski. But there was definitely something for everyone.

After returning back to camp kids had to pack as everyone is leaving tomorrow. But fun wasn’t over just yet! After some quick last shopping it was time for dinner and prize giving! All kids gathered in the big Les Elfes chalet and the monitors put on  a show for them. Various awards were given for the competitions and activities that took place during the week, like the tidiest room, the sports tournaments and the clubs competitions. A star camper was awarded the highest prize for best representing the core Les Elfes values.

After the prizes where given out and the monitors made their speeches everybody headed down to the cinema room to get their sports and languages certificates and watch the videos and slideshows the staff had prepared for them.

Now everybody is saying goodbye and getting ready to got bed, not forgetting exchanging contacts and a few tearful goodbyes … or rather – `till next time`!

Rock Climbing, High Ropes Course, Canadian Canoe Expedition cont…

All of our campers had a fantastic night camping under the stars!

When the groups returned some of our campers had their optional activities. Which saw our first horse riders and golf players getting stuck into their coaching. The Tennis coach said he is very pleased with the progress of the students he has seen two days running, Do we have the next Roger Federer on camp??

Discovery – Our young campers packed up the tents this morning after an exciting night under the stars. I think they were thankful it didn’t rain though. Once all the equipment was rounded up they had a treasure hunt on the campus. After lunch they went rock climbing on a local wall. This really did challenge their nerves, but they were all very successful and had a great time. This evening they have all teamed up against one another for a bin bag fashion show.

Explorers – They all had a fun night staying high up in the mountain hut. This morning they had a final explore around the lake and surrounding area before heading down through the beautiful forest to the awaiting vans ready to take them on their next adventure…  A high ropes course. This tested the skills and balance our campers have hopping around in the tree tops. Later we persuaded them to come out of the trees for food and to return to camp.

Pioneers – They continued their expedition along the lake searching for a suitable place for lunch. They soon got back out. Whilst paddling along they learned about lake formation and played games. They had a short transfer from the pick up point to a beech where they went banana boating for the rest of the afternoon.

The Pioneers and Explorers mixed groups for a music game this evening. It was nice seeing them all get along with new people to interact with.

Tomorrow brings our language lessons, a sports day, more high ropes and an afternoon at the lake side….
