Bastille Day! Reds and Blues had a shock at breakfast this morning when their group leaders and activity leaders burst into song to celebrate this important day for France. After breakfast we jumped straight on the bus to head off to Gruyères for the day. First stop; chocolate factory! The campers enjoyed an interactive experience, first learning about how chocolate made its journey across the globe, and how it arrived in Switzerland. They got to smelt and learn about all the different ingredients that go into bars of chocolate and then watch the factory process. After a few chocolate tasters, the campers took part in a quiz, testing all the knowledge they’d acquired. After lunch we drove into the picturesque old town. We enjoyed the views and took a walk around the medieval castle. Back at camp Bastille Day continued, with Beef Bourguignon for dinner.
Reds and Blues, enjoyed a game of Bingo before heading to bed, after a jam packed day.
