16th July 2011
The campers arrived by car, train and plane,
They came from all over, even from Spain,
Luggage unpacked, it was time for fun,
Maybe some football under the sun.
Red or Yellow, Green, White or Blue,
The moment of truth, which colour are you?
After dinner, we were ready for bed,
But no-one could wait for the adventure ahead.
Tennis, rounder’s and basketball,
Archery, hiking and a climbing wall,
Around the centre, there’s loads to do,
Just look through the window and check out the view!
Hop on the coach for trips far and wide,
A day at the Aqua Parc to try out the slides,
And off to the Glacier, go huskies go,
An Alpine roller coaster, definitely not slow!
Parc Adventure, shoot down a zip wire,
And singing in France around the camp fire,
Back for the Olympics, who’s going to win?
I doubt it’s the staff, their chances look thin!
Thursday morning and mission day was here,
Into our squadrons we had nothing to fear,
Soldiers assemble, war paint on,
Chants at the ready, the challenge has begun!
“Guten tag”, “Bonjour”, “Hola”,
Here at Camp Suisse, the language talent goes far
Now’s where’s the DJ? We hear you shout,
It’s disco time, get those dance moves out!
Before we knew it, it was departure day,
Parents arrived and we’re off and away,
Laughter, hugs and even a tear,
But don’t you worry, we’ll see you next year!!!
