Strothoff International School – Day Two

11th June 2014

Rise and shine campers!

The day started with an early morning walk before breakfast to take in the fresh alpine air. Then everyone boarded the coach and made their way to Collombey for some outdoor rock climbing – building on the skills practiced yesterday evening on the climbing wall back at Camp Suisse. 

After a great team effort on the rock face it was time for lunch of filling baguettes from the local bakery. 
Then the next activity was ready to start – the bushcraft hike. This was a great opportunity to learn about types of mosses that grow in the area, the ecosystem and life cycle of the forest. The students looked at the topography of the Alps and how they were formed.

Once shower hour was done at Camp Suisse, every one enjoyed homemade lasagne and Waffle Wednesday for dessert – scrummy!

The last activity before lights out was the Torgona Hunt. The students raced around camp following clues to answer questions about the surrounding area

A great day had by all – let us see what tomorrow will bring!
