The Kali offers varied stretches of slow waters to currents perfect for a graded learning experience. Learn paddling techniques, safety, balance the kayak with your partner and even learn how to deal with the infamous kayak-flip. For a unique climax, navigate mangrove canopies. Rock climbing is an individual activity, done on natural rock faces around the campus. The backpack trek starts with walking through the fascinating mangroves and ends with setting up camp. At night, camp out in the wilderness and watch the Ursa Minor and Draco constellations.

care and safety

Being well fed and hydrated is crucial to staying energised for the action-packed days. A fully functional kitchen on campus dishes up fresh, wholesome and nutritious food for every meal. Water, soup or juice provided during hydration breaks through the day. Our instructors take care of the rest. They’re all certified outdoor experts who go through extensive training and assessment before working with us. For the comfort and special needs of girls, there is a female instructor assigned to each activity group. A doctor is also present on campus at all times to attend to medical needs.

travel details

Participants fly to Goa from their respective cities. It’s important that you only book the flight recommended by Inme. The flight expenses are not included in the program cost. We do not accompany the children on the flight but our team receives them at the airport. The group then continues their journey in AC buses to our campus, just four hours away.

fitness requirements

This program might be more demanding than the usual physical activities you’re used to. We recommend a little jogging, stretching and exercise a few weeks before the departure to gain the flexibility and agility needed to truly enjoy the experience. Do this wearing the shoes you want to carry for the program—it’ll help break into them.
