  • Wood cutting at the Camp

    Wood cutting at the Camp

    Forest maintenance before the arrival of the high season

    This week, the loggers and the forestry service carried out a major wood cut in the neighbouring forest belonging to the Camp Foundation.

    Some old and damaged trees were in danger of collapsing. It was therefore important, for safety reasons, to carry out this work.

    In addition to removing potentially dangerous trees, it will also allow new growth and plantations to have more space and resources to develop.

    Some of the cut wood will be chipped, and will be used on the floor of some of the play areas on the site. Another part will be used as firewood in our houses, especially in the Zwingli house. We can say that we produce our own resources.

    This work was carried out during the low season, so as not to disturb our guests and to allow everyone to be safe outside the Camp. In particular, pedestrian access to the forest was prohibited.

  • Christmas Market 2021

    Christmas Market 2021

    Our Christmas market was held on 11 and 12 December in our facilities in Vaumarcus.

    During this edition, more than twenty exhibitors presented their work and products to some 300 visitors. The Fondation Le Camp was pleased to welcome these people despite the sanitary conditions.

    Our local artisans presented a variety of handmade products to a warm and local clientele. From chocolates, liqueurs and craft beers, the food section offered a wide choice of quality gifts or treats to take home. The same goes for the wooden products, which ranged from pens and dishes to vases and hand-carved decorations. Other handicrafts such as pottery, jewellery, leather bags or Fimo decorations completed the offer. A wide range of quality products was on offer to customers over the two days.

    As far as the organisation is concerned, the low number of visitors due to the snow and the sanitary restrictions means that we will have to increase our communication for next year, but we are nevertheless delighted with this edition.

    The Christmas atmosphere reigned at the Christmas Market and at La Fondation Le Camp during the whole weekend and we are already looking forward to the next edition!
