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!
At the beginning of this year La Fondation le Camp took a big step towards its energy transition
With the cost of electricity tripling by 2022, it was important to look at ways to reduce these costs. The option of solar panels was then obvious in order to respond, in addition, to the challenges of the energy transition.
Thus, the main building, Beausite and Les Cerisiers were fitted with solar panels on their roof surfaces at the beginning of 2023. The installation of the panels on the roof of Le Vaudois, which was previously renovated, should be completed in the coming weeks.
Although the investment is substantial, the surface area of the photovoltaic installations on these four buildings should enable us to achieve 35% autonomy, with a total estimated production of 132'00kWha per year.
The installation of these panels also coincides with the values of the Foundation, to remain close to nature and in harmony with the environment.
