Languages & a Hike for the Yellows

6th August 2018

Another day dawned bright and sunny at Camp Suisse, and so another day of adventuring and fun began. After a healthy breakfast, the yellow group separated into their languages classes to learn plenty of new and exciting topics in French, German, Spanish or English. After some vocabulary, grammar, speaking and games, they grabbed a sandwich and lathered themselves in sun cream ready for the day ahead. We made our way to Plan de Croix, where we hopped on the chairlift and enjoyed the beautiful views over the Swiss mountains on our way to the Col de Don and the French border. From there, we could see all across the Alps to the Mont Blanc, rising tall in all its snowy glory. We had lunch at the top, then slowly started the descent back to camp, encountering cows, farms and many stunning views along the way. Once back, the yellows jumped onto the climbing wall to perfect their mountaineering skills, with some of them really showing off their monkey skills! Shower hour and hearty dinner revived the campers, who then enjoyed a competitive and exhilarating game of Capture the Flag. Tune in next time for more fun and excitement with Camp Suisse’s Yellow Group!
