Idea behind the Camp
To Develop Self Reliance, independence, Courage, Spirit of Adventure in kids
Outdoors, Adventure and camping Experiences comprise of challenging experiences, both physical and emotional, which lead to new awareness, sensitivity, and understanding in the students. In an outdoor camp, learners set out to explore the unknown as a team and in the process rediscover and re-connect with self and the world around developing Intrapersonal, interpersonal, ekistic and ecosystemic relationships.
The important aspect of the outdoor camp is the element of curiosity and creative anxiety at every step. Therefore, it helps the learner experience and understands how he/she navigates the unknown challenge and further develops his/her capacity to become self-reliant, independent, confident and caring.
The Outdoor Summer Camp gives children the opportunity to connect with the natural world and learn all the outdoor skills they have been missing all these years.Children who attend summer camps often show an increase in self-confidence and independence. They learn positive values from positive role models and gain leadership and communication skills outside of the school and home setting. Children have a chance to develop as individuals and are given the freedom to be themselves
The Children will learn practical outdoor and life skills turning them into confident, creative and self-reliant individuals.
Special Care is being taken to avoid the heat in the afternoon by keeping the kids in cool place, specially created by aid of desert coolers.We have a male and female on sentry duty throughout the night.
