Second Week of Starts Off Wet
Unfortunately the second week of Village Camps started off a bit wetter than last week, in fact like all of Geneva it was absolutely soaking for most of the morning, but did clear up in the afternoon.
Thankfully our program wasn’t too disturbed by the rain, most of the groups who were supposed to go swimming were able to go to the indoor pool at Varembet, in Geneva.
SB1 and 2, went instead to the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, which has been one of our rainy-day schedule activities for many years, and like always the campers found it very enjoyable. Unfortunately we had to cancel the trip to Signal de Bougy, so instead the 8 year olds spent the morning on campus and went bowling in the afternoon.
The weather meant that all morning our indoor activities were full of campers, and all the specialists; dance, drama, arts and crafts, music, as well as the two gym specialists, really had their hands full, it was quite the start to the week for them! In arts and crafts preparations for the special day costumes are well under way, the theme this session is The Circus, and groups of all ages are busy preparing their clown feet and animal masks.
In dance and drama they are going over the rehearsals for the performance that the campers do for the parents- judging by what I have seen so far it really is going to be fantastic, and we urge as many parents as possible to come along and spend the afternoon at camp.
The weather for Friday, as well as the rest of the week, is supposed to be fine, so we hope to see you then!
