The early bird catches the worm at Glacier 3000!

14th August 2017

Today we had a camp excursion with all the colour groups, and we departed very early, as the early bird gets the worm! We were on the road before 8 am and headed eastward in to the hinterland of Switzerland to visit the Glacier 3000 high up in the mountains. It was the first time in a cable car for some of our campers and they gazed in wonder at the views below them. For others it was even their first time on snow! Once we were up, we met out tour guide and embarked on an adventure with some beautiful husky dogs to accompany us! We split into small groups and were each given a friendly dog to walk including am 7 month year old little puppy that was an instant hit!

After bidding farewell to our four legged friends, next up for our campers was the crazy Alpine Roller coaster, Europe’s highest. It was such great fun and there were plenty of squeals and shrieks of excitement. We refuelled with a scenic lunch sat on the terrace looking out over the glacier before heading out for a better look at the observation point where we could see for miles around. This was followed by a courageous walk across the stunning Suspension Bridge that hangs 3000 m up! Some were nervous but everyone but their best foot first and enjoyed the beautiful views.

A quick visit to the gift shop and it was time to head back down. Back at camp, it was time for campers to rearrange their hair, smooth their clothes and practise their best smiles, as we took some group photos to keep as souvenirs of their fun here at Camp Suisse. What a lovely day!
