The Kayak & More program creates an opportunity for children to experience three activities - Flat-water Kayaking (on the lake), Trekking and Rock climbing. While kayaking, participants not only learn the paddling techniques but also important skills like self-rescue and safety management. The program is conducted on our Naukuchiatal campus which is located on the lake. Naukuchiatal or "lake of nine corners" boasts to be the deepest of all the Nainital lakes.
On our summer camps, all participants experience the three activities for 2 days each. The outdoor activities are conducted in the first half of the day. Post lunch, participants engage in activities that include community service, environmental awareness and or village visits. Late evenings are for informal activities, campfire, and group interaction.
Please Note: While fun is an important element in our designs, we do not promise a cushioned, luxury holiday. We take utmost care to ensure that children are well fed, remain hydrated and have a comfortable sleep. But being without phones, sharing living spaces, baths, toilets is as much a part of the unfamiliar environment that aids learning as the great big outdoors.
