An experience set in the hills of Coorg provides a mix of adventure, creativity, age appropriate challenges and learning. Activities are designed to encourage participants to step out of their comfort zone, be independent, become confident, stretch themselves physically and mentally; in a safe and nurturing environment.
Explorers spend three days concentrating on each activity in smaller groups of 15–18 under the guidance and supervision of trained instructors. Cool Time sessions fuel the creative side or expand the mind by building on ideas of social, community and environmental awareness. A visit to a neighbouring village is always a grounding experience. Round things off with fun campus games and bonfire sessions.
Thank you inme for giving my daughter, Jarvinya such a wonderful experience! She came back with a big smile, a bundle of experiences, new friends, many skills and a pool of knowledge about the environment and her relationship with it. She was very happy with her instructors and the yummy food. It was very safe and extremely well organised.

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.
The group departs from Bangalore in luxury 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 10:30pm. Outstation participants need to fly into Bangalore a day before the departure date.
This program might be more demanding than the usual physical activities your child may be 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.
