The centre was buzzing this morning, alive with the sounds of children singing, acting and dancing in preparation for the talent show later this week. The Reds and Blues are very excited to be able to perform for the Greens and Yellows, and show off their newly perfected language skills. After this, the campers were given the chance to meet Bear Gryll’s Australian cousin, Kangaroo Toaster, before adventuring into the woods to discover and sample edible plants. Lunch was followed by a chilled Art Jamming session, and a climbing session where all the campers tried hard and most were successful in making it to the top of the climbing wall.
The Greens went on one of the favourite excursions today, to Cailler Chocolate Factory and Gruyere town! The campers really enjoyed the museum, especially the tasting room where they got to try multitudes of different chocolates. Lots of the campers bought even more to take home as ‘presents’. After eating as much chocolate as they could manage, the Greens headed for Gruyeres, the city famous for the cheese of the same name, and where the Meringue were born. There, the campers treated themselves to even more food, relaxed around the beautiful town, before heading back to camp.
The Yellows were whisked away in the early hours of this morning, and gathered weary-eyed at the bottom of Glacier 3000. After two gondolas and countless chairlifts, the Yellows were walking to meet the husky dogs in the fresh snow. Taking it in turns to sled with the huskies, followed by some tobogganing down the powder, was the perfect activity in the cool mountain air. The peak walk finished off a busy day in the mountains, and the campers arrived home tired but happy.
