GES hike to France

20th June 2017

After splitting the group into two, half enjoyed facing the challenge of scaling our exciting climbing walls. They enjoyed a great mix of interesting games that also helped them improve their climbing technique. Meanwhile, at the archery range, many bulls-eyes were had! The students showed enthusiasm and natural talent; our instructors have some competition!

In the afternoon the groups were reunited and headed up to take their turn at our beautiful Alpine  outpost. The hike, whilst challenging, was enjoyed by all and we were all hunting the local animal: Mouflon! After a rest at the refuge – we hiked to the incredible French border where the some of the campers were excited to see the area in which they have skied during the winter!

Camp fire, sing songs (did somebody say the meatballs song??) and scary stories were swapped by campers. Ooooooo!
