Wednesdnay 20th, Excursion day/Skiing day/ Disco

Another great day at Les Elfes ended and all our little campers are about to fall asleep after these tiring but amazing activities and excursions.

Our bunch of kids had three options concerning the activities of the day :

The first option they had was to go in excursion in Evian (France), followed by the visit of the famous Olympic Museum, and finally ending with some shopping in Lausaunne to bring a few typical presents to family and friends.

The second group chose the excursion to the chocolate factory, which was apparently really huge and impresive. Right after that they had the chance to do a bit of shopping in the enormous Chrismas Market of Lausanne.

For the ones who were keen to go skiing the third option was perferct, all day on the slopes riding and having loads of fun with their favourite instructors.

As usual we finished the day with a delicious dinner, followed by one of kids favourite evening activity…THE DISCO!!

Have a good night and don’t let the bugs bite guys.

Another fun filled day had by all the campers. Again we woke up to a beautiful blue skied day. All of the beginner groups started on the mountain where they successfully navigated blue runs and a pommel lift. The more advanced groups tackled the glacier run which all groups enjoyed immensely, especially with the fantastic view.

All the campers came back for hot chocolate and snacks followed by shopping in Crans town. Where all the campers brought souvenirs for their families and amazing cakes from the bakery. This evening we played Crans vs Montana a game where two teams go head to head in games such as orange pass, balloon game and the mummy game.
