Red and Blue activities!

5th August 2013

It was another beautiful day in the Swiss Alps and after a busy morning of languages and sports the Reds and Blues headed off to their afternoon activity. The first session of the afternoon was archery on the tennis courts. Both groups showed great skills in this activity, Platon and Viktorija doing particularly well. After a well-earned rest for the afternoon tea we got for our next activity of ghyll scrambling. With the weather being so hot we were all looking forward to cooling down in the river. We headed off to the ghyll and started to ‘scramble’ up it. The water was cold and refreshing and everyone seemed to embrace it! With many obstacles to manoeuvre such as bridges and ropes, this made the ascent even more exciting- with lots of splashing going on too! When we reached the end of our track the Reds and Blues were keen to keep going and scramble back down the river again to our starting point. A fantastic effort from everyone! Platon once again was enthusiastic, along with Anie. Our walk back to camp in the scorching sun soon dried us off and warmed us up for our next adventure tomorrow! Another great day for Reds and Blues!
