Thursday 11th January Ski Race, Skiing and Snowboarding, Ice Skating, Languages, Swiss Fondue & DISCO
This morning was quite nice with patches of sun shining through and casting stunning light over the mountains across from the camp. A beautiful way to start the morning and to enjoy breakfast. Our campers headed out this morning full of energy and ready for the ski race in the groups. Each group had its own ski race on the La Chaux piste so that they could compete against fellow campers of a similar level and see how their skills held up under pressure. Some of the winners of the race were a real surprise and it will make for a fantastic prizegiving tomorrow.
After lunch the campers had a chance to relax and to ski the mountain in their groups and to enjoy their evening and reflect on their performance in the ski race of the morning and, for some, laugh about their entertaining mid-race tumbles.
After skiing the students enjoyed a nice snack together and gleefully retrieved their phones before their language lessons. For those without languages some chose to go ice skating at the new rink in the village while others went for a crêpe or visited the town for some souvenir shopping.
Dinner was a real treat this evening as all our students had an opportunity to try Swiss cheese fondue… some for the first time. Then it was time to PAAAAARTY at the disco. Our lovely team of drivers took us on a short bus ride to our local Disco for a fun-packed evening of dancing. It was a great opportunity for our campers to relax, enjoy their evening together and celebrate the birthday of two of our campers.
