Thursday 24th September 2015 – Labyrinth, Salt Mines

Beautiful sunny day here in Verbier! It has been snowing higher up so we can feel the chilly breeze down here as well, but that wont stop us! Once warmer clothes were put on kids where ready to go!

Labyrinth – adventure park, was their first stop. What a fun time in there – bouncing castles, maze, slides and so much more to do. Kids definitely enjoyed their time participating in every single game and challenge and on the way to Salt mines couldn’t stop talking about their experience and compare it to others.

In the afternoon a little train took kids inside salt mines where they could try out mining, found out so much new about salt, taste it straight from the mountain and learned history of how it was discovered.

During free time everyone had to pack their bags as tomorrow is departure day! But it was done it was time for Prize giving and Slide show where ids could see all the photos taken during their stay here 🙂

Another beautiful and sunny day up here in the Swiss Alps!

All campers started their day with various language courses in the morning. After their morning of learning they split into their groups for more fun activities.

 

Discovery –  After lunch they got into the vans and headed off to the Labyrinth Adventure Park for a few hours. If that was not enough activity, some of them were able to fit in some golf, tennis, and or horse riding to complete the day.

 

Explorers – This group spent the afternoon testing their climbing skills on the climbing wall. After a few hours on the wall, some of the campers were also able to fit in their other activities to round out their day.

 

Pioneers – After a fun day on the ropes course (see photos below) yesterday, they spent the day in Verbier doing various activities of tennis, golf, and mountain biking.

 

All 3 groups were together for their evening activities and dinner. The group hiked for an hour up the mountain for a festive BBQ checking out the mountain views along the way. A few games were played around the dinner area before hiking down right before sunset.

Tomorrow is full of cultural visits across 3 cities – Geneva, Vevey, and Lausanne. We are looking forward to seeing what they discover!
