Rain Does Not Stop Play At Camp Suisse

29th June 2012

We’d love to be able to guarantee perfect weather all summer long at Camp Suisse, but even our outdoor pursuits experts can’t promise sunshine seven days a week.So to make sure that a rainy day doesn’t stop campers enjoying the mountains, we’ve worked hard since last summer to create an Alpine Outpost that will enable us to offer camping and lots of other great Alpine activities, whatever the weather.The Alpine Outpost has been created in response to feedback from visitors that tells us they really enjoy the camping trip. After disappointing weather last summer we decided to ensure that rain will not stop this key activity in future. The new outpost nestles in the mountains a good hike away from Camp HQ. Inspired by the Alpine tradition of ski refuges used by climbers and skiers as a place to sleep in bad weather, or simply as an overnight stop on an expedition away from home, we’ve created a dry, safe environment that offers a great alternative to outdoor camping when the weather is against us.
