Red and Blue Group – Up, up and away – it’s Glacier Day!

1st July 2014

It was an early start for the campers in Red and Blue group, everyone had breakfast at 6:15am (there were a lot of sleepy but very excited faces for glacier day!). Everyone wrapped up in warm layers and then headed up towards Glacier 3000! 

The sun was shining and the snow was beautiful and crisp! After taking a quick ride on the ski lift into the glacier we met a group of excitable husky dogs – everyone loved taking a ride on the dog sled. 

Later there was time for some hair raising thrills up on the roller coaster, which was fantastic fun! A quick lunch looking over the glacier went down a treat and then we headed down the mountain.

The campers arrived at Villeneuve on the shore of Lake Geneva where they had a lovely splash about in the pool and the lake! To dry off the campers enjoyed a lively football game in the warm sunshine! Everyone was really well behaved and were interacting fantastically with their new friends and Group Leaders.

Back at Camp Suisse everyone was ready for a quiet night and the evening activity was a hot chocolate whilst watching a film. 

So it had been snow and sunshine in one day – what a great day for the campers in Blue and Red group!
