Thursday 4th October – Excursion day & Clubs Night

Everyone had a lovely day on excursion today visiting various places around Switzerland. One group had a great opportunity to visit Aosta, Italy tasting some yummy pizza and ice creams! They also enjoyed walking around the historic town and seeing the castle. Another group went to the chocolate and cheese factory to see how it is made and to taste lots of samples. The last group went to Geneva to sight see, visit the UN and do some shopping. It was a great day had by all!

This evening we had clubs night where they had the choice to do football training, ping pong clubs, games night, baking or smoothie making club. It was lots of fun and the kids got very creative.

Excursion Day and Fun on the Mountain!

Today was a very busy but exciting day here at Les Elfes International. This morning the children had the chance to head out of Verbier and explore new places. Some opted for the amazing Natural History Musuem in Geneva, which was loved by them all. They then had the chance to shop till they dropped in Geneva City. Others headed to Chamonix in France, where they took an enjoyable train journey to the Glacier and the Ice Caves. What a great experience! After they also had the chance to do some further sightseeing and shopping.

For those who stayed headed back up the Mountain to improve their skills further, whether they were Skiing or Snowboarding. They had a great day in the sunshine and returned with smiles on thei faces.

Tonight most children took part in our Music challenge which went down a treat. There has been lots of fun and laughter and at times it has got quite competitive. A small group of individuals dined out tonight at a Pizzeria in Verbier town which they loved.

Overall, today has been a great day and we are now all looking forward to celebrating the New Year with the children in our Carnival themed night tomorrow!

Thursday 11th December 2014 New Arrivals, Excursions & Skiing

Today was a very busy day at the Les Elfes Camp in Verbier…

Our existing group of individuals enjoyed another fun-packed day of Languages and Skiing followed by an evening out to a local restaurant to enjoy some Swiss food.

We also had the arrival of our first two schools for this winter season… one of whom went directly to the camp while the other spent the day enjoying a cultural visit in Geneva and a night in a hotel. For the group who went directly to the camp they were greeted with a welcome speech before being fitted with ski/ snowboard equipment and exploring the picturesque town of Verbier. The evening activity on camp tonight was Movie Night.

For the school who were staying in Geneva for the night it was a speedy Check In at the hotel and a Picnic Lunch before heading to the Musée d’art Moderne et Contemporain (MAMCO – Museum for Modern & Contemporary Art). After an exhausting day travelling the group settled into bed early ready for their visit to the United Nations and St Pierre Cathedral tomorrow.
