12th August 2011
The end of our brand new Session 3 has finally arrived as we sit here reflecting on the summer of 2011 with very happy memories. Before moving on to the future though, one final ‘activity’ must be explained – the Camp Suisse Disco!
After the individual presentations for awards gained within their various colour groups, all the campers gathered together in the restaurant for the presentation of Session three’s KING OF CAMP! The mood was one of nervous excitement before the announcement that Avery had won the prestigious award, joining John and Sam for this year’s camp royalty. Particular mention must also go to the PRINCESS OF CAMP, Hannah, as she impressed the staff throughout her stay on Camp.
No sooner than the awards were handed out, the disco began with a mixture of classic pop tunes, new dance music and even some inspiring dance moves brought out without the help of music. ‘The worm’ made its way to the fray at least five times, and did not fail to disappoint on every occasion. The staff were certainly shown up by the campers in terms of their dancing ability, which meant that even an off-the-cuff rendition from ‘Just 4 men’ faded into insignificance when compared to the skills on show.
Unfortunately though, as the inspirational Nelly Furtado once said, “All good things must come to an end”, and I believe that she was talking about Camp Suisse when declaring such lyrics. For Thursday night rolled into Friday morning, which meant an early breakfast was in store for our campers along with a coach trip to either Geneva airport, or a surprise venture into Geneva for the campers who were to depart in the late afternoon.
Tears flowed, laughter dried up and the centre here at Torgon soon became eerily quiet after the final campers made their way back home after an unforgettable stay at Camp Suisse. All that’s left to say is a HUGE thank you to all the campers for making the season so enjoyable both for the staff and the other campers. It quite simply couldn’t have ran as smoothly without such wonderful kids and we here at Camp Suisse would love to see you all again next year.
