Yellow Group: Rock Climbing & Montreux Jazz

6th July 2021

What an amazing day that the Yellow Group had today! The day started off with a 2-hour climbing session in Villeneuve, where many campers overcame their fear of climbing and scaled the 15-meter wall.

Some of them were at first reluctant to participate, however after light encouragement from the Group Leaders, they went on to scale the wall! Climbing is such an inclusive sport that everyone can participate in, so it was amazing to see every single child getting harnessed up today.

Next, the campers hopped on the coach to Montreux, where they enjoyed the world-renowned Montreux Jazz Festival. The atmosphere there was electric and they had plenty of free time to explore the lakeside town, with supervision from our experienced group leaders of course! They ventured into the shops, stalls, the local shopping centre and took in the scenic views of the gorgeous Lake Geneva. Many campers bought food, crepes and souvenirs at the festival and an amazing day was had by all!
