Daily News 5th July
The sun rose over the mountain tops and shone gently through the Reds and Yellows windows at the mountain huttes. After an alpine breakfast in their respective locations each group began their descent off the mountain to camp. Plenty of fun and games were had on the way.
Film, German, English and Horse riding camp had a break from lessons today and they all visited Krimml waterfalls, these are Europe’s highest, they drop over 350m through a three tier drop system. A very beautiful place. After a buffet style lunch, the options for afternoon were level 2 bandana swimming, level 2 bandana football, chillin’ by the pool. A mid session Sunday afternoon favourite is the sauna and spa afternoon, this was very popular with both girls and boys, face packs all around!
In the evening, it was time for a relaxing with a movie for the yellows and a campfire sing-a-long for the reds.
The day started very cheerfully with Dave the counsellor doing a harmonic wake with his guitar. The campers enjoyed the singing and even joined in!
It is a big day for the Lake & Mountain Adventure today. They set off to spend the night in a mountain hut ...
The yellows and reds pack their day sack with a pack lunch, toothbrush and spare cloths and head into the mountains. The yellows take the train into Zell am See and cheat a little by getting a gondola half way up Schmittenhohe, they then walk to the Pinzgauer hutte along a fabulous ridgeline. The evening program was the infamous chocolate eating talent show. The reds head off in the opposite direction up onto the Kitzstienhorn galaicer via a big telecabine. They spend the night in the rustic but very homely Salzburgger hutte.
The German, English and Film camps have the choices of swimming, mountain biking and football in the afternoon followed by team building challenges in the evening.
