Wednesday 8th Aug – Mountain Biking, Ropes Course, Rock Climbing and D-I-S-C-O
Nearing the end of the Session 5 here in Verbier, but still lots of activites and fun for all the campers to have. Languages kicked off the day, and you can really see the progression all the campers have made so far in their language lessons.
After lunch, the Discoveries headed for the ropes course in Aigle. A lovely setting for the youngest group to enjoy climbing up ladders, swinging across ropes and zipping across the trees. Although the smallest group, they showed no fear, as all of the Discoveries had lots of fun in the trees.
Some of the Explorers ventured to rock climbing in Sembrancher, a natural rock, which allows the campers to not just climb on man made climbing walls, but get to experience the real thing. With our guides there to also help as well as the monitors, the campers got to learn how to tie a figure of 8 as well as some of the more Advanced climbers to get to learn how to B-lay another camper. The other half of the Explorers also got to rock climbing as well as mini golf. All of the Explorers showed real potential in climbing and were practically scaling the walls quicker than we could take photos.
The Pioneers went on an adventure up the mountain today, not on foot, but by mountain bikes. All of them ventured up on the gondola and then had to make their way down on the mountain road. All of them gave it a go and were exceedingly good!
The evening was one of those nights that all campers look forward to…THE DISCO!! Leaving straight after dinner, all the campers head to the disco for a bit of a dance. It is really nice to see all the campers getting together and having fun. A great night had by all!

Another glorious day on the mountain for the Les Elfes campers. The sun was shining ready for another fun filled day. After the morning session of languages and optional courses, the groups split off to enjoy their various activities.
For the Discoveries, it was time to try a bit of mountain biking. For some of the little campers, it was their first time ever on a bike, so a real achievement when by the end of the session they could ride. For the other Discoveries, it was time for them to test their skills they already had and to learn some new games on their mountain bikes. A fun day had by all
The Explorers headed down to Le Chable to play a variety of different sports on sun soaked courts and pitches. Tennis, Football and a frizbee being hurled about were enjoyed by all.
Individual brilliance on the tennis court, mixed in with great team work on the football pitch was wonderful to witness.
The Pioneer group went up the mountain for a small walk and warm up before heading up the trees to tackle Verbiers new Ropes course. A wide range of obsticals had to be navigated while also, for some, conquering a fear of hights.
The energy at camp was electric as all the groups headed into town for the fabled Les Elfes Disco.
Singing, dancing and Learning new moves the kids had a fantastic evening. No one wanted to leave as chants of “ONE MORE SONG” rang out.

This Thursday kids woke up at 7:30 for a foggy day. Weather was not the best but kids were excited to go to the slopes anyways. After a delicious breakfast they left to go skiing and although the weather was miserable, all campers did their best and made the most out of it. All of the campers were really happy as it was ski race day. Very competitive, but all campers are looking forward to finding out of their results tomorrow at prize giving. Coming back in the afternoon for hot chocolate and bread with Nutella was well deserved by all the campers.
For most of the campers who didn’t have languages, either signed up for shopping in town or a bit of rock climbing. After dinner it was time to head to the Disco, which was enjoyed by all. So many different nationalities from our six schools this week on camp and also all our individuals. Was really nice to see that whatever country you are from, everyone can get along and have fun together.

Today the weather was a bit miserable for the campers as there was a massive snow storm that hit Verbier. This did not discourage the campers, as even though they had to come back to camp a tiny bit early, they were still all smiling and wanted to ski/snowboard more, which is always amazing to see.
When they returned, there were lots of choices of activities, from baking, rock climbing, games or just chilling with friends on camp.
In the evening we went into town for our mid-week DISCO, which was amazing! All the students got involved and showed us their moves on the dance floor…
