“My daughter was on the Bhillar camp recently. She had an awesome experience and a lovely time. She just couldn’t stop talking about the amazing camp, the fantastic activities and learning skills, the superb meals served throughout the day, all the new friends they made. But most importantly, the most amazing and fun loving volunteers playing games and pranks with them, and taking utmost care of every single child on the camp!!! Many thanks to inme and team for giving children such a lovely experience along with teaching them life skills.”

–Amisha Kocha, Juhi's mother

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

The group departs from Mumbai by AC buses at 6:00am. We stop for breakfast on the way and reach the campus in time for lunch. On the way back home, the bus reaches the assembly point by 9:30pm. Outstation participants need to fly into Pune on the day of the departure. They travel from Pune to campus in an AC bus. It’s important that you only book the flight recommended by Inme.

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.
