Monday 29th – BBQ, Aqua park, prize giving and disco

It has been an amazing day here in Verbier with loads of fun activities! This morning we began the day with our etiquette and web identity classes before a lovely BBQ out in the sunshine. Our group then went to the Aqua park and had a brilliant time running around and whizzing down the slides!

This evening we had a prize giving to award all our special campers for their hard work and enthusiasm throughout the week. Afterwards we watched the slideshow and had a disco to end such a fantastic week.

Friday 28th April – Ski race, excursion, core clubs & prize giving

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.

Thursday 27th April – Skiing, mountain biking, problem solving, journalism, etiquette & Web identity

Another snowy day here in Verbier and it looks like it will continue through the night which is great! Our skiers had another superb day out on the mountain and are now up and about the slopes starting to get some good turns in. Again it was quite difficult conditions with bad visibility so our groups did fantastic.

Another group were on excursion today visiting the United Nations which they found extremely interesting. They then had the opportunity to explore Geneva and do some shopping.

This afternoon our journalism class continued with their interviews and articles which are really starting to come together. Our mountain bikers braved the weather and headed out to improve their riding. Back at camp our leadership group took part in various problem solving activities which went down really well.

Tonight was the last evening of etiquette class and web identity. Both have been a huge success and everyone has shown real enthusiasm and interest throughout.

We are all looking forward to another day in the snow tomorrow!

Tuesday 25th April journalism, etiqutte classes

Today has been a really busy day here in Verbier, our campers this week are making leaps and bounds on the mountain their instructors and are really enjoying the new experience. It was snowing at times during the day making conditions a bit trickier but everyone did really well.

This afternoon was the start of our core lessons. Our students chose between mountain biking where today they learnt the basics of the bike itself and how to do repairs on tyres and chains. They managed to get up the hill and have a practice on the off-road conditions which went really well. Elsewhere some opted for leadership skills where they had some ice-breaker games as well as an overview of what makes a good leader. Lastly we had a journalism class where the group had an introduction to the world of Journalism and looked at topics and ideas of magazines and newspapers.

This evening our classes changed and everyone now either took part in etiquette classes or web identity. During etiquette classes they learnt how to act in public, how to greet people formally and informally as well as role play and scenarios of good and bad examples attitude and behaviour. In web identity the main focus today was how we present ourselves online and awareness on social media.

Tomorrow it is forecast to snow which everyone is super excited about!!
