Yellow Group: Glacier Day

20th July 2021

Bright and early this morning, the Yellow Group awoke (a little earlier than usual…) to their second excursion of Session Two – Glacier 3000!

They ambled sleepily to the dining hall, where we had breakfast, grabbed our packed lunches and hopped onto the bus. After a winding bus ride down the mountain, across the Rhone Valley, and up the Diablerets Massif to the glacier, we then boarded the gondola which whisked us up to the top of the glacier.

Our first activity was husky sleigh rides – the Yellows zoomed across the snow, and even got to pet the dogs after! Next, we arrived at the sledding zone- where we all slipped and sledded down the slope until our hearts content! We even had some staff-camper races… in which the campers came out on top!

We then headed up to the Alpine Coaster (Europe’s highest altitude roller-coaster!) – which Lucie and Samantha particularly enjoyed!

It was then time to embark on the exhilarating Peak Walk; a hair-raising walkway that links two mountain peaks, where the views were absolutely stunning. All too soon, it was time to get back on the bus to Camp, where this afternoon we chilled out and played a few games.

Until tomorrow!
