14 July 2008 - Bastille Day
Once again -- Village Camps, Switzerland
is a very, very busy place -- and that's how we like it.
Everything is ready to go for another great session at Village Camps, Switzerland. First full day of camp is always confusing on the first morning -- campers are not sure exactly where to go but by the end of breakfast time most questions have been answered.
Some people have asked about the meals at Village Camps, Switzerland -- starting tomorrow, I'll try to enter the menu for each day.
The post below gives the breakdown of numbers at each of the camps and the age groups (colour groups). After that, there is a posting of a number of pictures from 14 July
Couple of things going on tonight -- one is a "murder mystery." The campers are given a story about some type of mystery and a listing of the suspects (counsellors). They are allowed to question the suspects and see if they can figure out "who-done-it?"
Another fun evening activity is called Blue Meanies. The campers have to find a group of counsellors -- who are dressed in rather outlandish costumes -- and get them to sign their name -- another group of counsellors are dressed in blue (hence the name Blue Meanies) and their job is to stop the campers from collecting the names.
Hope you are having a really great day!
The tennis campers left for the New Sporting Centre to meet with Steve Loft, director of the California Tennis Academy. Maybe a future Wimbledon champion will emerge from this group of tennis hopefuls. As usual, there are two groups of tennis campers – 19 campers are scheduled for a morning lesson and 32 scheduled for the afternoon. The afternoon campers are also enrolled in a language programme in the morning – some in French and some in English.
The multi-activity camp has 63 campers -- enrolled in one of three special programmes – Dance has 14 campers, Outdoor Adventure with 34 campers, and Sports with 15. We will have more about these choices in a later newsletter
Campers are divided into “Colour Groups” by ages – and activities are then scheduled for the individual groups. Here are the numbers for this session – youngest to oldest. The “greens” are all of the campers enrolled in Junior Camp – a very special camp for young campers (ages 7-9)
Greens 19 campers / Yellows 65 campers Reds 68 campers / Blues 36 Campers
