Some good, some bad, that is the weather we have been dealing with here in Leysin. Today we woke to cool temperatures and drizzle. So, we decided to stay inside and work on quantum reading strategies. Campers were amazed at how they were able to improve the number of words read per minute and at the same time comprehend the content better. It is all about being in the right frame of mind and training our eyes to perform the way we want. Several campers were heard saying, “This is going to really help me in school.”
After lunch, we hopped on the train to Aigle to check out the High Ropes course. This was a hit! Campers were able to explore the tree tops by walking, sliding and jumping from tree to tree. Smiles and laughing were the highlights of the afternoon. Many were also amazed they were able to overcome some of their fears and build self-confidence.
In the evening, we reflected on the day and examined the labels and masks we decide to share to the world. Tomorrow in the morning we discuss integrity then go to Aigle again for time at the pool. What a great day today and we are looking forward to another one tomorrow.
