A new raft in Vaumarcus
Our guests should be happy: a raft is now available to users of the Vaumarcus beach
The request of the children and young inhabitants of Vaumarcus (Les Ecureuils) has been granted: a raft has been installed not far from the shore.
It is now possible to swim the few metres from the beach to the new raft, to sunbathe on it, or to jump and dive from this floating platform.
This equipment completes the existing facilities: on-site toilets and shower, four picnic tables, three grills/fireplaces, a car park... in short, everything you need to spend a beautiful summer season by the lake.
The summer promises to be aquatic and joyful, for our guests as well as for Les Ecureuils, to whom we wish a lot of fun.

Work day to prepare the camp for the summer season
The Work Day is a very important day for the Camp Foundation, as it allows us to keep the facilities in good shape for our guests to enjoy.
Twice a year, many members of the Works Committee and other volunteers come together to give the Camp Foundation a fresh start and look after its buildings and grounds.
This spring, this convivial day, which also aims to bring people together and have a good time, will take place on 24 April 2021.
A lot of maintenance work is planned, which will allow the Camp Foundation to be maintained at low cost but high quality during this rather uncertain period. This will be an opportunity to take care of our forest edge, where a fence needs to be removed, to improve the quality of the fence around the Passerelle building, to adapt the profile of the steps of our main building, or to give the Zwingli room a good lick of paint.
All hands are welcome on this Work Day, and requests for participation can be forwarded to our
