We woke up this morning to a cold and dreary day. The rains finally caused a change in the schedule but our counsellors are very flexible and have a number of back up plans for just about anything. The English and French classes, of course, went on as scheduled and the Tennis Camp just moved into the indoor courts at the sports centre and continued on their path to playing on centre court in Wimbledon someday in the future.
We had a fire drill yesterday afternoon. Happily all the campers made it out to their assigned places away from the buildings. Campers were lead out by counsellors and then a count was taken to be sure that everyone was present (or accounted for).
Tonight is Disco Night for Village Camps, Switzerland. All the different groups get to participate in this grand event and we will have some disco pictures for you to view with tomorrow’s post.
The "feature" story below is about yesterday evening's Casino Night. This is one the traditional activities at Village Camps, Switzerland -- and is always a lot of fun.
Below that is another photo gallery with a number of pictures for you to see.
Have a great day -- we will have more pictures and news for you tomorrow.
This evening the dining room was transformed into a casino. This activity is one of the traditions at Village Camps, Switzerland. Lots of games and lots of fun. Campers were given a supply of Village Camps "money" to use in playing the games. The counsellors served as the dealers, croupiers, etc. and had as much fun as the campers.
There was a chance to play roulette, or blackjack, or a number of other "games of chance." The object, of course, was to win as much money as possible but there aren't many places where you can spend your winnings and the exchange rate is something fierce - but no one cares about that, the real goal was to have fun and that goal was met just like a Royal Flush will win at poker.
