Red & Blue Groups: Glacier Day!

21st July 2021

Today the Reds and Blues managed to make it up to Glacier 3000. This exhilarating excursion brought us up to an altitude if 3000m (hence the name)! Campers had an early start this morning to make use of this jam-packed day.

Once we arrived up onto the glacier, we began with husky-sledding. Campers zipped around on a sledge entirely powered by huskies! After this, they got to meet the friendly dogs 1-on-1 and Kate particularly enjoyed the snuggles. We then went sledding ourselves down hills on the snow. After a few crash landings from Bertran and Flavia, and some impressive dexterity from Spencer, we settled down and had a well-deserved lunch. Next on the agenda was the world’s highest alpine coaster! An amazing ride that sent campers thundering down the mountain and having a fun and wild ride! And now, this evening is the famous Camp Suisse barbecue, sure to fill hungry bellies from today’s excitement.
