Thursday 28th March: Racing Day and Prize Giving
Friday 4th January. SKI, FELXI TIME AND PRIZE GIVING!
After a big and energetic breakfast, the kids were ready for an incredible day of skiing, the last one for a lot of them. A great opportunity to enjoy the slopes with new friends and to spend funny time with their instructors. The day was lovely sunny and they ate a yummy picnic on the mountain to continue skiing in the afternoon.
At 4pm all of them came back to the campus to drink hot chocolate and eat snacks, take a shower or relax in the apartments for a bit. Then, some of them had language lessons, other played boardgames and others packed everything to come back home tomorrow.
Between 18 and 19h. in the evening, the dinner was served, before the prize giving started. It’s a beautiful and grateful activity to close an incredible holiday for the kids and gave them some prizes for their good days here. An enjoyable and happy night for everyone at camp!
Friday 15th Last day skiing, prize giving and time to say goodbye!
When the kids woke up this morning, exhausted from the intense weak of skiing and other activities, their spirits were lifted by the beautiful sunny day that awaited them. A quick breakfast, boots and helmets on, and off they went again to battle the mountains one last time!
Alas, this week has come and gone too quickly, and when the kids came back from skiing, it was already time to start packing. Some headed into town for some last minute souvenir shopping and a tasty crepe. Yet, the wisest of them saved their hungry bellies for traditional Swiss raclette, a well-deserved meal for this wonderful group who gave 100% throughout the week!
Finally, it was time to show them the highlights of the week, their entertaining Music Video, Pictures and most importantly our prize giving ceremony, that revealed the winners of the big ski race amongst other prizes.
It has been a great week at Les Elfes, and we will surely miss this group! For now, we bid them farewell and hope to see them again next year!

They also played lots of games and enjoyed eating ice creams in the sun.
The pioneers had a brilliant time bridge swinging flying through the air. It was great to see them all challenge themselves and try something new. After that they all battled each other at laser tag running around trying to shoot the opposite team.

It has been a brilliant Friday here in Verbier with tons and tons of snow! It has literally not stopped for 24 hours giving us so much powder to play and ski with. All our campers have found it amazing building snowmen and having snowball fights. They had their ski race today which went really well, we had some super quick times and some individuals really shone through when it came down to the final race.
Elsewhere we had one group visit Vevey to do some sight-seeing and shopping. They also had a brilliant time at the Charlie Chaplin museum. This afternoon when our campers returned from the mountain we enjoyed some snacks and hot chocolate before taking part in our final core clubs. We had presentations to conclude the sessions and show off what they have all learnt.
Tonight we enjoyed prize giving where our animation staff and instructors got to hand out special prizes and award the medals for the race results. We ended the evening with a slideshow of the weeks highlights. It has been a really fun week and we hope to see these campers again next year.

This afternoon we had a mixture of activities, with a cooking club, a movie and of course, unfortunately packing. We were also back out in the snow sledging and having a crazy time creating new runs to see who could get the fastest tracks.

This morning started off with a bang! Everyone was eager to get downstairs to put their boots on and get out skiing and snowboarding on the fresh snow. We have had heaps of snow during the night which continued into today so a powder day for everyone! All our campers persevered through many snow storms and were determined to stay out even in tough conditions. Some groups enjoyed a quick hot chocolate on mountain before carrying on.
Due to the hard conditions today many campers were extremely tired so opted to stay and relax at camp or headed to the village. We also welcomed a new group from China this evening who had spent their first day visiting Chateau de Chillion. They are all excited to be here and are ready to be ski fitted and get a good nights sleep after a long journey!
