Academia Anjo discover the Roman Ruins

4th July 2013

Roman Tours around Martingy the AA group enjoyed another lovely breakfast with the sun shining at Camp Suisse before heading down the valley to Martingy: a Roman town in the heart of Switzerland.  They visited the markets, where they bought souvenirs and presents for themselves.  Everybody enjoyed a yummy packed lunch in the centre of town next to a giant chess board, before heading off for their Roman tour delivered by Fearghal from the Activities team.  He was fantastic in explaining how the Roman’s lived and worked 2000 years ago and answered any questions they had with his depth of knowledge of this period of history. Returning to Camp Suisse for their language lessons, the group continued to improve their English skills before dinner comprising of breaded mushrooms, Thai green curry and eton mess for dessert.  This evening the group were challenged to find out who killed Murder Mystery victim.

There were twelve suspects, played by a few different members of staff from all the different departments of camp.  It was really exciting going around Camp completing numerous challenges to obtain clues! In the end, we discovered that it was Mr Brumwell, one team made up of blue and red campers were the only team who actually guessed correctly!

Time for bed now, always looking forward to a great day tomorrow!
