Our on campus programs are typically 3-5-7 day experiences on one of our 3 campuses across the Uttrakhand. Children stay in tented accommodation on camp and participate in activities, challenges, learning and informal fun sessions around the campus. Our expedition-based programs have a higher challenge level – participants move camp on most days and set up their own campsites and manage group chores.
Our week-long on camp programs for 9-15 year olds use adventure, art and community to create powerful learning experiences. Mornings are spent on a WOW activity - participants choose from adventure activities like Rock Climbing, Wilderness Craft, White Water Rafting, the Ropes Course - where they learn relevant skills for their level. These work towards building confidence, pushing oneself and building on success experiences.
