Day Four – Discos and Departures!

18th June 2015

The sun was streaming into the campers rooms this morning to wake them up nice and early!

Ecole International de Geneve
The students of Ecole International de Geneve had a big morning ahead of them as their activity today has been the new Camp Suisse activity, Mountain Day. Their survival skills have been put to the test as they have been taught how to survive in the wilderness. They were introduced to the technique of navigation and are now confident in map reading and using a compass. Whilst walking around the mountains our skilled activity leaders introduced the campers into more ways of survival by demonstrating water filtration and tarp shelter building. All of the campers got involved with this and had a great time! Their confidence and improvement was fantastic to see!After a yummy lunch in the sunshine we sadly had to say goodbye to students and teachers, we’ve had a wonderful time with you all! 

Geneva English School
Today the Geneva English School woke up from a fun filled camping extravanganza in our off site camp location. After a scrummy camp breakfast they enjoyed a long hike back down to the Camp HQ. After lunch they dived straight into a mountain bike session with Brodie and Ed, our skilled activity leaders! After being taught how to check the bike is safe, the students learnt how to safely manoeuvre around level ground! Once everyone had mastered this they got to go off on various courses and finally cycle back down the mountain! The fun doesn’t stop there as everyone shot off to get ready for tonight’s disco before dinner. We’re looking forward to seeing some groovy moves tonight!

Ecole Moser
After a scrumptious buffet breakfast the students of Ecole Moser School headed off on a sporting adventure! First they got a Football masterclass from Emma, our footballing whizz! This included shooting techniques, the correct way to tackle and was finished off by a game! There was no time to rest after as Kirstie lead the students straight into a rounders coaching session. Everyone had definately worked up an appetite in the morning session and enjoyed sitting in the sunshine whilst eating a packed lunch on the terrace! For the afternoon session the group was split into two. The first went off shelter building in the alpine forest, this helped improve teamwork and communication skills whilst being fun. The second team went off to try their hands at archery and enjoyed their time in the sunshine. The teams then swopped so everyone got to try both activites! Next it was back to Camp Suisse HQ to put their dancing shoes on for our disco tonight!
