31st March – Arrival + Departure Day, mini excursion, skiing
Time flies as we head into April, and what a last day of March it was today, lots of students leaving, but even more arriving as we head into probably one of the most busiest weeks in the season so far!
Our students that are staying for another week had the choice of skiing or venturing out of the Verbier bubble to Martigny to partake in some shopping and a bit of bowling, which they highly enjoyed. Our keen skiers, decided they didn’t want a day off to relax but wanted to hit the slopes to improve their techniques.
Our new arrivals, had lots of fun doing ski fit and clothes fit, to ensure they had the right equipment for their stay, but also loads of fun enjoying the fresh snow. Some of our students, as like most weeks have never seen snow before, so was a delight for them, especially as it was acutally snowing when the arrived!!
The evening was very relaxing and time for all the students to get an early night, as most have travelled far and wide to get to camp. Although very excited about the week ahead, was a quiet camp by the early hours of the evening as most campers crept off to bed ready for the fun packed week ahead on camp.

11th March – Departure Day, Arrival Day, Ski Fit, Verbier Hunt, Movie Night
Today has been a busy day with plenty of departures and arrivals. It was sad to say goodbye to our school from Dubai as we’ve had a great week getting to know them all but we were all excited to welcome our new schools and individuals.
After a quick welcome speech we were straight into action, getting the children ski fitted and ready for their first big day on the mountain. A lot of the children also had the chance to explore Verbier village and enjoy a hot chocolate in the afternoon.
Tonight after a long day, we chilled out watching a movie and had an early night.

21st January – Departure & Arrival Day, Skiing, Bowling & Movie Night
So today has been an emotional day for a lot of us here at camp as we have had many individuals leaving us who had been with us for one or two weeks. There were a lot of tears but it is great to know that so many friendships have been formed and lovely to see that they’re going to keep in touch with each other. However, we did have a lot of new arrivals today and everyone is getting to know each other over games of Uno, Cards and Jungle speed, whilst others are chilling out watching a movie.
During the day, our existing individuals had the option to go bowling and have a break from the mountain. Everyone had great fun and there were a few competitive games. The others chose not to have a break and continued to work on their technique as skiers and snowboarders and it was a lovely day to do so, with the sun shining and not a cloud in sight.
All our new arrivals have been kitted out with all their equipment needed for their first day on the mountain, and for some it is their first time on real snow! With exciting times ahead a lot of campers are having an early night ready to get up and go tomorrow.
Saturday 8th – Skiing, Snowboarding, Arrival Day & Games
Friday 26th – Departure & Arrival Day, Skiing, Movie Night!
Today, it has been very sad to see some of our lovely students leave us. After a great week or two with us, it was time for them to pack their bags and say their goodbyes to some great friends made during their stay as well as their instructors and monitors. We hope you have had great time and hopefully see you back at les elfes soon!
On the other hand though, we have been super busy all day with the arrivals of new schools and individuals which is very exciting and marks a new week. After a speedy ski fit, ensuring they are all ready for their first day on the slopes tomorrow, the students had the chance to chill out and relax at les elfes as well as visiting the local village, to get to know their new surroundings. Outside, we had a good game of volleyball, making the most of the beautiful blue sky and sunshine in Verbier. This evening, they then had the chance to wind down with a movie in our cinema room, or catch an early night after a very long day of travelling.
For one school that had arrived the day before, they had the pleasure of getting out on to the mountain and taking part in their first ski lessons of the week! For those that are new to the sport, headed to les essert, the beginner slope to get to grips with being on skies and learning the basic moves. It has been an extremely hot day here, so jackets came off as the students tried hard to take in all the information from their enthusiastic ski instructors. After a lovely lunch outdoors, some of the groups were already heading up higher, to challenge themselves even further, impressing us all.
Our individual students had a slightly different day today, as they have already been here a week. They made the most of a mini lie in, a well deserved treat for all of them, and after lunch they made their way to Martigny for a competitive game of bowling. All the students had great fun, and enjoyed a break from the slopes, where they could chill out with their friends and have a good laugh. Back at camp they were joined by our new campers and have headed off to their chalets for a good nights sleep before hitting the mountain for a second week!
Thursday 10th September 2015 – ropes course, prize giving!
Another great day with great activities! Kids where excited and sad at the same time- ropes course are one on the activities that kids like the most as it is challenging and fun at the same time. But this is also a departure day for all kids which makes us sad as it was such a nice group to work with!
After having lots of fun up in the trees it was time for prize giving – tidy room competition and challenge winner during their stay in our camp where given Les Elfes souvenirs for nice memories!
We hope you all had a great time because we sure did! See you all next year!
