Its nearing the end of Les Elfes spring camp 2019 and its already making us sad. Today was crazy fun and personally one of my favourite days. We went bridge swinging today and it was a lifetime experience. The thought of jumping of a cliff and swinging from a harness attached to the bridge seems daunting at first but actually is a lot fun. It was also very cold today as it had rained the previous day.
we also went to the sports centre and played tennis and badminton. One of the coolest things we did today was the egg drop challenge. We were basically given some materials and had to protect the egg in some way when it was dropped from the second floor. It was a lot of fun to see the cool inventions people came out and 2 teams actually managed to survive.
After dinner today we had games and they were definitely the highlight of the day. The older and younger kids had separate sets of games. They were more music, movie and dance related. We had dance-offs, guess the movie and song too. It was a really awesome day in all…
ROPE COURSE, ROCK CLIMBING, BRIDGE SWINGING, TENNIS AND CLUBS
Today was a fun day. The groups had been separated today and did different activities. The campers below 13 spent the morning playing tennis and then came back and played a few games. After lunch they went for bridge swinging. Bridge swinging is one of the most interesting activities at Les Elfes. We are suspended from a bridge and can swing.
The older campers went for a ropes course situated 2 hours away from Verbier. It was challenging but a lot of fun. We had a picnic lunch and then we did rock climbing .We had a bit of free time so we had a football match. After coming back we had some free time and could go shopping too. After dinner we had our club activities like baking in which we made chocolate cheesecake. We also had magic , bushcraft and the apprentice as club options today.
25th August – Last Day, Lake Day, Bridge Swinging and Prize Giving!!
It was everyone’s last day on camp today and we have gone off with a bang! Everybody has had so much fun and there have been plenty of smiling faces. The discovery and explorer groups were straight off to the lake in the beautiful sunshine. They have had an amazing time playing games on the giant inflatables and having a go at water sports and paddles boarding. On land there were plenty of games to keep them entertained with badminton, football and a classic bit of bat and ball. The Pioneer group had an adrenaline rushed day with a bit of bridge swinging to wake them all up this morning followed by a very competitive, exciting game of lazer tag which they loved!
Back at camp it was sadly time to pack and buy some last minute souvenirs from town. Tonight we finished on a high with prize giving and an emotional slideshow highlighting the amazing memories made at camp. Thank You and See you next year guys!!
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!
