The students set off early in the morning, winding their way through the Swiss Alps – Great effort by all but special mention to Dom for his determination!
Lunch was taken at La Bourri with great views, even if it was a little cloudy!
Everyone arrived at the Alpine Outpost and took a break or played ping pong and cards before the students put on their hiking boots again and took a walk up to the border with France – the classic photo of the students with one foot in each country.
As the sun started to set the students collected fire wood – some campers collected trunks bigger than themselves! Soon the Alpine Outpost chef has the BBQ ready and sausage with burgers were on the menu.
Group Leader Mark then hosted a quiz in which three teams tied to win and shared a prize of a yummy chocolate bar!
Next up was bananas stuffed with chocolate and marshmallow and everyone gathered around the camp fire for a singsong and a tale or two from Activity Leader Tom (“What’s in the yellow bag Tom?”).
Everyone turned in for the night before the short walk back down in the morning.
