    This 8-day kids' camp is an outdoor adventure and challenge-based experience for 11-13 year olds, and is conducted in the wilderness. Children stay in tented accommodation on camp and participate in activities, challenges, learning and informal fun sessions around the campus. The campuses are set in spectacular locations to create an environment that inspires learning. These have been carefully chosen keeping in mind safety, facilitation of adventure activities as well as fun and exploration.

Mornings are spent on a WOW activity - participants can choose from adventure activities like Rock Climbing, Wilderness Craft, the Ropes Course - where they learn relevant skills and help them in building confidence and pushing themselves towards success. Post lunch is spent on COOL time designed to address the participants' attitude and awareness. The evenings are spent relaxing around a campfire.

    Destination

    Situated in the Satara district of Maharashtra, at an elevation of 3500 feet, this campsite is close to Mumbai. The largest town nearby is Panchgani, 12 kms from camp. The campsite is set within an 80 acre estate with fixed toilets and bath blocks with running water. The activity hub is a large flat ground in the middle of the campsite, with a kitchen and dining facility that also serves as multi-purpose hall. The area has great rock climbing opportunities and hiking routes. There is a 40-50 feet natural rock face for rock climbing and rappelling, and giant trees have been used to construct the ropes course with various low and high elements.
