Summer Camp Leysin, Switzerland - Wednesday, 2017-07-26

A wild Wednesday in the woods!

Everyone at VC Leysin is getting very excited for tomorrows big event, International Night! Village Camps is proud to have campers from all over the world come and stay with us over the summer, what better way to celebrate that diversity than by hosting a day of celebration where campers can share their culture, traditions and delicious foods!

In the morning our adventurous Greenies returned from their overnight stay at the Mountain Hut and after a little break and a much deserved lunch, they headed off for a fun game of Mini Golf.

The Yellow Adventure and Sport Camp spent the morning testing their bravery and balance by heading out of camp to take on the high ropes course in Aigle, they spent their time zipping through the trees and tackling the challenging obstacle courses.

In the afternoon, all of our campers split off into their Nationality groups to begin preparation for "International Night". Our campers spent their time preparing funny and informative skits based on the country they had chosen to be performed for the whole camp to enjoy tomorrow night. Some campers headed to the kitchen to begin preparing the delicious international cuisine that will be served at the international camp buffet while the rest of the camp headed out to the forest for a friendly game of capture the flag!

In the evening, the Greens and the Yellows headed to the forest for a game of Zing Tong! It was up to the Greenies and Yellows to help their prince defeat the dastardly "King Zing" and his band of "Zingettes" and return the captured Princess and stolen Gold to their rightful place.

Elsewhere in the Forest it was down to the Reds to use their powers of deduction in a fun game of Murder Mytery whilst back at camp the Blues settled down for relaxing movie night in the auditorium.
