The sun was up very early and so were the kids at 7:30 am. We started our day getting everyone ready for breakfast, so that everyone had the energy to start the day with a smile in their face. Languages started at 9:00am and campers were taken to their corresponding classes. Intensive, conversational English and Intensive French were drove to the Verbier Language School, while the other students met their teachers on camp. Languages ran from 9:00 to 11:00, for conversational languages and from 9:00 to 12:00 for intensive languages. Campers with optional sports were taken to their corresponding optional, horse riding and golf; unfortunately, because of the weather tennis had to be cancelled and rescheduled for another day.
At 12:00 campers had a delicious lunch at Les Elfes, followed by a healthy dessert, watermelon.
As soon as lunch was over the kids went to their corresponding meeting points where they were told what they were going to need for their afternoon activities.
With new friendships we started our activities, after lunch the kids were filled with energy and excitement.
The youngest ones, group 1, went on a beautiful hike/walk around Verbier. Singing songs and telling stories as we hiked up and down this wonderful mountain. An hour went by and we decided to make a stop in a small cafe for a well deserved scoop of ice cream. Full of energy we continued to hike by a path with a gorgeous view of the Swiss Alps.
Group 2, the oldest campers, had a great time mountain biking down the mountain all the way to Le Chable. What an amusing view they had cycling down from Verbier. Campers reached Le Chable and took the lift back up to Verbier.
From 5 to 7 some of the kids stayed in camp playing games and having showers, while some of them were in town getting some snacks and checking out the interesting stores.
From 19:00 to 8:00 dinner was served in the dinning room at Les Elfes 1.
After dinner the little ones had a great time playing “boys vs. girls”, a game that consists of many challenges such as pass the orange, mummy, magic carpet and many others. Meanwhile, group two was having fun playing the cube, which is a very similar game, but the challenges are different.
Today we had a big day with loads of activities, fun and laughter.
At 9:00 little ones went up to their rooms, brush their teeth, got into their pyjamas and into bed. The older campers went up to their rooms at 22:00, with the same routine as the youngest ones.
A big day awaits tomorrow so rest is a very important part of this wonderful day.
