Set by the Tirthan river in Himachal Pradesh, the program provides a mix of river and land-based outdoor activities. Activities encourage participants to step out of their comfort zone, open up to new experiences making them confident by nature.
Explorers spend three days on each adventure activity conducted in smaller groups of 15-20 participants. Outdoor activities take place in the first half of the day. Evenings are spent on cool time sessions that fuel the creative side or expand the mind by building on ideas of social, community and environmental awareness.

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.
Groups depart from Indira Gandhi International Airport Terminal 2 at 7:00pm by AC buses till Aut. The next leg of the journey takes you to our Tirthan campus in non-AC buses/jeeps. The road can get a bit bumpy over some uneven stretches, so be prepared! On the way back, we reach Indira Gandhi International Airport at 6:00am. Outstation participants fly into Delhi on the departure date. Inme provides airport pick-up-and-drop service and meals at an added cost. Contact us for details.
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.
