action packed days

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.

Can’t thank you all enough for teaching life lessons apart from other camp activities on skill development. Thanks to Uma sir, she was able to overcome her fears and be comfortable with bugs and beetles—the surprise visitors buzzing on camp. She’s come back with abundance of experience from her Yercaud Program.

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 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.

fitness requirements

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.
