EIG Day Three

2nd June 2016

For Classes 6B & 6D, yesterday was Glacier Day. It was truly beautiful; the glacier was in fine form, and the husky dogs were raring to go. Our campers were taken around the Glacier by sledge and they got to play with the dogs.

6B & 6D then toured the Roman ruins, exploring the Roman culture, architecture and general history. Unlike the top of the glacier, it was quite warm in Martigny and the glorious weather allowed our campers to relax and enjoy a quiz in the amphitheatre, followed by a sword fight between Steve and Rich! Guess who won…

In the morning, 6A headed to the Camp Suisse Mountain Bike Centre for some biking fun. It was great to see the sun and all the groups, from the absolute beginners right through to the very advanced, have a blast with our ever-enthusiastic instructors.

6C kicked off the day with some archery and team building games. The competition at the archery range was hot and the team building games were a nice end to a busy morning.

After lunch, the classes swapped activities and it was 6C’s turn to hit the mountain bikes. Again, a great afternoon thawing out in our first summer-ish sunshine of the week!

Once a tasty meal of burritos was consumed, all classes had the opportunity to choose which activity they wanted to do. The activities on offer were yoga, climbing, five-a-side football, crafts, and for those that had nothing left in the tank… a relaxing DVD.

Wow!!! What an action packed day our campers had yesterday. We are all really looking forward to the Shelter Box Charity Day today… Fingers crossed the lingering clouds clear for some sunshine!
