What a Wednesday!

30th May 2018

6A and 6D were up with the sun rise for a day filled with adventure at Glacier 3000. A chilly but beautiful gondola up to the glacier where the children were met by 13 excitable dogs. Plenty of snow balls were thrown and snow towers were made while we watched each group fly around the sled course.

We headed back for a well-deserved lunch break and views across the Glacier 3000 viewing bridge – where plenty of fears of heights were conquered!! A truly fantastic morning. We were even lucky enough to share the gondala down with the very cute husky dogs!

The afternoon was split between the roman ruins and the St Bernard museum. More impressive dogs for the kids to say hello to and lots of information around the museum. Rosie gave a fascinating tour of the roman ruins and there was even a real life (brilliantly acted) fight between two Romans in the old ampetheatre.

Heading back to camp for an evening in the forest of BBQ and games, the kids were all super excited from the unforgettable day they had had.

6B and 6C had an equally action-packed day! They learned how to mountain bike with our instructors, tackling the trails and rocky routes that encompass our mountain bike challenge area, and even took on some jumps!

They also took part in an active sports session. We discussed the importance of hand-eye coordination, then put it to the test with some challenging juggling games with rugby balls, and practised switching between running and throwing tennis balls before a mega game of Capture the Flag! Some impressive agility and excellent teamwork was seen all round.

Mountain biking and more…

A fun filled day in camp for classes 6A and 6D. With the weather taking a turn for the cloudy, 6D took to the sports hall for a competitive morning of 1 wicket cricket, cone ball and, the newly named ultraball. Meanwhile 6A conquered their heights in the climbing wall with many of the kids racking up high scores on Emma’s newly installed climbing challenge. In the afternoon the groups swapped and with the sun out 6D headed up the mountain for an afternoon of cycling games and down hill mountain biking. 6A showed their competitive side in camp spending the afternoon learning how to juggle and playing their own ultraball tournament. After a busy day of fun and games 6A and D settled in for some camp fire songs or a film in the sofa room to round off a great day in camp. Bring on tomorrow!
