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