St Ivo School – Coach 2 – Day Three and Four

23rd June 2014

To the Alpine Outpost!

Hiking boots? Check. Water bottle? Check. Happy faces? Check!

The hike up to the outpost it a great challenge for the students because it is a long walk and it’s not downhill! There was plenty of backing and praise from everyone and soon enough the destination was reached – a pat on the back everyone!

Some people had more energy to burn and went on a further hike up to the French boarder and others stayed back at the outpost playing some games.

As the sun started to set, the BBQ was lit with the burgers and hot dogs sizzling away upon it! Everyone went out collecting fire wood for the camp fire on which the marshmallows were toasted and songs sang around it later in the evening.


More adventure awaits…

The Alpine Outpost chef made a delicious breakfast of sausage, beans and bread (with some cereals too) and then the students made the hike back down to Camp Suisse.

Once everyone had a chance to freshen up and grab their swimming kits, it was all aboard the Camp Suisse coach for an excursion to the Aqua Parc! There the students had a choice of several pools and slides to whizz down!

For the evening activity there was the chance to win some great prizes during Bingo! Eyes down!

Everyone was feeling rather sleepy after all the activity from the past two days, so bed was a true and trusty friend.
