Sunny work day
As it does every autumn, Le Camp was able to count on motivated volunteers for its autumn work day.
The Camp Foundation held its traditional autumn work day on Saturday 30 September.
Some fifteen loyal and motivated volunteers lent a helping hand to our works committee.
Under a radiant sun and in a friendly atmosphere, they worked on various tasks on the Camp grounds!
In particular, all the benches were sanded and repainted, as were the picnic tables and our bike storage area.
Landscaping work has also been carried out, including tree pruning, cleaning fireplaces and grounds, and building a low wall around Maison 5.
In preparation for winter, firewood was stored and put away.
The day was punctuated by moments of sharing between participants, and meals and snacks were even served on the terrace.
A big THANK YOU to all the volunteers for their commitment and their participation in the life of the Camp!

The new "Lovers' Corner"
A new look and a new space
Those who are attached to the Camp know it well: the "Lovers' Corner"! A small secluded area, a table and benches sheltered by a hill, the perfect spot for a picnic.
Unfortunately, this peaceful spot will have to give way to this new building as part of the futur projects.
A little saddened by this future disappearance, we have decided to move this spot. To do this, we worked with our hosts, the apprentice landscape gardeners from the Wetzikon professional school, who were staying with us in June.
The apprentices worked on several practical projects, both at the Camp and outside, during their end-of-year week.
The new Lovers' Corner has been created under the Old Laundries, with a small terrace surrounded by a dry stone wall and forest benches. A pizza oven has also been installed to enhance our offer.
We would like to thank the Wetzikon vocational school once again for this wonderful achievement.
Welcoming and orienting our guests thanks to the installation of totems and a new orientation map
Until this year, the Fondation le Camp did not have any welcome signs or a clear orientation plan for its guests.
A project had been in the pipeline for some time and was finally completed in May.
Three wooden and metal totems have been installed at various strategic points:
- Two of them welcome our guests at the ends of the Camp: the first is on the left of the road coming from Vaumarcus, near the car park, and the second is below La Seyte, welcoming our customers arriving from the post bus stop.
- The third totem pole is located between the main building and the Ancienne Poste. As well as greeting customers arriving from the car park, this totem also directs guests by displaying a map showing their location, the various buildings and the access routes they can take.
These new reception and information points add value to our customer service and should enhance the experience of our guests at the Camp!
