Snow-balls and sledding

18th July 2019

Glacier 3000 was on top form today, and the Reds and Blues took full advantage, embarking on an action packed trip that lasted almost all day! Highlights included husky-dog sledding around the glacier, tobogganing on the fresh snow, and a bridge walk between two peaks. It was a big day for many of the group, like SeAurel from Gabon, who got to experience snow for the very first time! New and old-hands alike all enjoyed the snowball fights and snow-angels though. The campers finished their trip at an amazing height of 2971m, overlooking views of Lake Geneva and Gastaad, before returning to camp for a movie and hot chocolate. Overall, it was a wonderful glacial day at high altitude.
The Greens spent their day at camp, enjoying a morning of languages followed by group photos. In the afternoon, the Greens enjoyed an action-packed climbing session. After familiarizing themselves with the wall and the necessary safety measures, the campers participated in several climbing games. Teams competed against one another in a drawing competition and a relay race. The campers will be putting this learning to practice later in the week when they try outdoor climbing! After a delicious chicken fajita dinner, the Greens got creative and worked in smaller groups to make 3-minute movies. The Greens are excited to go to Lake Geneva for banana boating tomorrow!
