27th – Hiking, Rock Climbing, Sports Day, Holi Festival and Dine Out!!

We’ve had a brilliant day on camp full of super fun and crazy activities. We kicked off today with our final language classes for most of out students which was followed by different activities for our different age groups.

The Discovery children were off on an exciting sports day, involving biking, swimming and sports and games! The Explorers had a go at rock climbing, making their way to the very top and impressing all their monitors. Finally our oldest group the Pioneers had a fantastic hike in the beautiful Verbier mountains. This afternoon during free time we had a new activity called the Holi Festival of colours. It was amazing to see all our children mixing together, throwing paint in the air turning les elfes into a rainbow of colours! Everyone loved it.

Tonight we had a movie night, casino nights and a dine out. Off to bed now ready for our last day tomorrow for most our campers!

27th February – Skiing, Snowboarding, Cooking Club, Hiking, Music Video, Sledging, and Music Quiz

CRANS MONTANA: Day 2 at Les Elfes Crans Montana with MIC Merbella and they were off to a great start on the slopes starting nice and early. Some of the groups went to a different side of the mountain called Viollete while the beginner group started out at the magic carpet but were able to make it up the button lift later on the day. For lunch 4 out of the 5 groups had lunch on the mountain and were able to enjoy a stunning view with their food. After skiing everyone had some nice hot chocolate to warm them up before heading for sledging. After about 45 minutes of sledging they got tired and we decided to have a snowball fight to end the afternoon. After dinner the campers all got into comfy clothing and even some of them were in pajamas for a music quiz. The campers were able to demonstrate some fantastic dancing, singing, and an excellent knowledge of artists.

 

VERBIER: We have had great reports back from the mountain today with all our campers putting in 100% effort in their skiing and snowboarding. Our beginners are progressing quickly, with natural talent and are hopefully heading up to the mountain tomorrow on day 3. They are all super excited. Our more experienced groups covered a lot of ground today and explored some new areas, keeping them on their toes and really pushing their comfort zones.

Back at camp, as it was such a lovely day, one of our options was a afternoon hike up the mountain to take in the views and get some more fresh air. There are some tired legs tonight! We also had a cooking club at Les Elfes and all our groups made some scrummy cookies which we had tonight for desert. Whilst some others chose to relax at camp a lot also opted for a swim at the local sports centre which went down a treat after a long day skiing and boarding.

Tonight after diner we had two activities under way. All our school groups participated in a very fun energetic music video which we can’t wait to edit and watch at the end of the week. Our Individuals on the other hand headed into town and put their brains to the test in the Escape Rooms. They all did very well and some even managed to escape in 60minutes. Well done to them!!

Tuesday 8th September 2015 – Hike day!

Weather is just perfect for a long day hike today! Sun is shining bright, but you can feel the autumn freshness in the air.

After putting good shoes on and comfortable clothes everyone was ready for a hike. Good breakfast was a great start to prepare ourselves for a good hiking day. All day long beautiful views, physical challenges, fun and smiles on kids faces! Have to admit – everyone came back tired, but kids had free time to rest before dinner and evening activity!
