Jura Kids Camp October

DAY 1

Fantastic start of the camp! The kids built an amazing treehouse, very impressive skills! After our picnic next to the sheeps, we did a very long bike ride on the trails, went back to the sports hall, cleaned our bikes and played the classic Jura Sports water relay.Thanks kids for the energy and great attitude! I think they will sleep well tonight.

DAY 2

We started the day with a little warm up in the sports hall followed by agility and speed exercises using posts, hurdles and cones, wow the kids are fast! We then hopped on our bikes for a little ride to the forest, where we made a fire by a stream, and grilled some (veggie!) sausages, miam! The kids also used the fire to grill their sandwiches, brilliant idea! After the picnic, the kids all drew a little bit and there were some amazing drawings with heartwarming messages for me. We cycled a nice little tour and back to the sports hall where we played lots of different indoor games, like obstacle run relays and basketball. Another really fun day with a great group of kids.

DAY 3

We started the day with lots of different agility games to warm up before the first bike of the day. We cycled to the forest in Bogis-Bossey where we did a treasure hunt. The kids had to find 11 objects and it wasn’t easy! We the cycled to the Chateau de Bossey where we hd our picnic on the lawn. The afternoon’s activity was land art. One team did a house, and the other a giant face ! Lots of imagination with the elements they chose. We then hopped on the bikes for our final ride of the day, returning to the playground for some free time, washed the bikes, and made some drawings with chalk. Another action packed day and lots of good vibes!

DAY 4

Another action packed day with agility and speed obstacle courses for starters, cycling for main and building a bridge for dessert. The kids LOVE obstacle courses, and its not always the tallest and oldest that wins! Today was a big cycling day: 15km through Chavannes-de-Bogis, Bogis-Bossey and Céligny! The kids can ride ! We also built a bridge to cross a stream, was a fantastic team effort, and nobody fell in the water ! Amazing day at the Jura Kids Camp.

DAY 5

A great final day for the Jura kids with a huge obstacle course to start the traditional Juralympics with two teams : the turquoise zebras and the purple lynx !

We hopped on the bikes and rode to the forest where each team had to make their own fire ! They both succeeded. We had lunch by the stream and grilled our sandwiches and even had a little raclette cheese on the fire, the Swiss touch !

We returned to the hall, cleaned our bikes, and started the final events of the Juralympics including obstale water race, long jump, shotput, throwing hoops in posts and many others! In the end it was a narrow victory for the turquoise zebras !

An amazing final day to close the October Jura Kids Camp, filled with so many good memories! Enjoy the rest of the holidays and see you soon! Thank you Jura Kids, parents, Chavannes-de-Bogis commune and the concierge for making this event possible. See you next year for more Jura Kids Camps!
