Time to go camping!
It was glorious sunshine for the hike up to the Alpine Outpost, so there was plenty of sun cream and water! The students found the hike a challenge to get to the outpost but once everyone had made it, there was a real sense of accomplishment. The students helped each other with boundless support and enthusiasm right up to France!
The Alpine Outpost was a tremendous sight and once every one had settled down they all had a big appetite – good job there was a delicious BBQ sizzling away! Once the sun had set the camp fire was roaring, lighting up everyone’s happy faces – of course it wouldn’t be a camp without some songs and games!
More adventure awaits…
In the morning the students enjoyed an early morning breakfast in preparation for the hike back down to Camp Suisse (the Activity Leaders took the easy route back because there was more planned for the day).
Back at camp it was all aboard the Camp Suisse coach for an excursion to Aqua Parc! There were plenty of slides to whizz down and pools to splash around in. A great day out having fun and even getting a chance to practice swimming skills.
Soon time came for the students to return to Camp Suisse and have a dinner of scrummy Chicken or Vegetable Pie! The evening activity was Bingo – eyes down! Full House!
After an action packed couple of days, everyone was ready to rest their heads and revitalise for some more adventure!
