Bananarama !

11th June 2017


The Culford Prep summer trip kicked off with a cracking day down on the shores of Lake Geneva for some crazy Banana boating. As the summer sunshine beat down, temperatures soared into the mid 30’s and we felt more like we were on the Caribbean coast than the famous Swiss lake!

In between sliding down the giant slide, kicking the rugby ball on the grass and swimming in the lake, we all had a chance to get dragged around the lake on the inflatable banana. As the boat sped round, some found it harder to stay on the banana than others and some found it even harder to get back on than others…..

With a good dosage of vitamin D we headed back to Camp Suisse for shower hour and dinner and then, without a moment to wait, it was off to toast marshmallows on the camp fire. It will be a busy week ahead if today is anything to go by and the 6.15 am breakfast for tomorrow’s glacier trip should test even the loudest of alarms!
