Wednesday 4th June – Ropes Course, Sports Day, Mountain Biking…..DISCO

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.

Friday 18th of may ski slopes and evening activities

The campers were woken up at 7 am and were given a healthy breakfast . They were ready for their first day at skiing in Zermatt. There were many falls on the slope but our campers were determined to learn how to ski . Everybody had a blast . We finally started our descent by 2 p.m after a tiring day on the slopes .

Everyone hit the showers as soon as they reached back at the hotel and then went into town for ice cream or played football . Some people chose to stay back and relax. Then came their courses (leadership,bushcraft,etc).

Then came our delicious  dinner  of burgers and fries  after which we started with our clubs (apprentice,photography,etc) and the the first day of skiing ended just like it started on a happy note .
