Daily News 11th July
Half way through Session 1
Well it is Friday and the end of the first week here at Village Camps, it is hard to believe that the first session is half over...
but I suppose that is what happens when you are enjoying yourself as much as all our counselors and campers are.
The forecast this morning was for showers in the afternoon, which had us slightly worried, but thankfully the rain stayed away and it was another day full of excursions as well as activities here on campus. A few groups were able to do the pottery activity today- they design, decorate and paint their own plates, which then get fired at the pottery kiln in Versoix, and the children are able to bring them home at the end of the session.
The Seven year olds had a great day- they spent the morning at the pool in Nyon and the afternoon bowling in Gland. What a tough life! The nine year olds and SA1 spent the day up in Signal de bougy, the seniors were able to try the Rope Obstacle course, it is a new activity that we have this year and judging from the pictures, it was a huge success.
The mini campers were also busy today- the sound of them practicing their elephant and lion impressions in the drama room was floating through the office all day, and we were actually quite worried at first!
In short, it was a great day and great end to our first week, hopefully next week will be just as fun!
