EIG Day Five

7th June 2016

EIG Coach 1
After a change in the program due to the ever-changing Alpine weather, Friday was 6A & 6C’s turn to hit the glacier and go husky dog sledding. After some quick drying of kit after Thursday’s Shelterbox Day, our campers woke at 5.45am, had breakfast and headed into the misty abyss of Les Diablerets! The fog couldn’t dampen the hounds’ enthusiasm. As ever, they were very excited to see us and couldn’t wait to run us around the glacier. The fog came and went and then came again… However, great fun was had by all. After some sad goodbyes between the CS staff and our campers, it was back to school, ready for the weekend with family!

EIG Coach 2
With sore muscles from cutting shapes at Thursday night’s Camp Suisse disco, our campers boarded the bus and headed to the Maison Cailler to learn about one of the most revered products in Switzerland: the chocolate! After hearing all about the history of the world-famous chocolate dynasty (and tasting our fair share), the sun came out and our campers headed to the old town of Gruyere for a spot of lunch and some free time. Lunch in Gruyere marked the end of a great week at Camp Suisse and we waved a sad goodbye to our legendary students from 6B & 6D.
