We woke up to a slight rain and cowbells on our final morning of camp. After breakfast everyone walked to the main room to take part in a game called The Maze. It is a team game where all members must navigate through a set path without speaking, touching or any verbal commands. The activity is a lesson on taking risks, communication and dealing with failure. Many campers realized it is alright to not always be right but also the importance of learning from your mistakes. They have really built some wonderful teams! They also tested their strength of mind by breaking boards, which was a crowd favorite!
After our morning activities a hearty lunch was enjoyed, it was time to pack for our departure tomorrow. Once the rooms had been taken care of, it was off to a shopping day in Leysin. The campers all walked to town to pick up some necessary travel items and purchase a souvenir or two for their parents!
Then after dinner the campers graduated from SuperCamp which was marked by power woosh and certificate. The night was capped off with a disco at The Farm Club. It was an entertaining and emotional day for everyone. It has been an amazing time and the staff thanks all the campers for the enthusiasm and effort. We wish you all the very best!

What a fun and memorable night we had at the Mountain Hut last night. The games and stories were great but who could forget all of those noisy cows and their bells. It is incredible to wake up with scenery as beautiful as this.
We grabbed a quick breakfast and headed down the mountain to town to hurry back for our trip to Rougemont for rafting and canyoning. Half of the campers were scheduled to go rafting while the other half went canyoning. However, there will be the opportunity for everyone to do both at a later date. Some of us were nervous about the adventure ahead but we all were excited at the same time.
Once the groups separated, the fun began. The exhilarating cold water woke everyone’s senses as soon as they set foot in the river. Soon laughter from splashing, falling and watching others wild expressions were unforgettable. The trip back was filled with trading stories but soon silence set in as tired campers fell asleep. After dinner, we ended the day with group and individual reflection.
Friendships and memories are being made each day at camp and it is amazing the things we can do. Tomorrow is our last day together and we want to make the most of it. The topics addressed and activities will be failure leads to success, trust games, graduation and a disco.
One final day…”this is it!”
