The heat may be scorch­ing and un­bear­able, but sum­mer va­ca­tions are no fun for any­one if chil­dren are cooped up in­doors all day. This year, give them some­thing apart from the run-of-the-mill ac­tiv­i­ties they do ev­ery year. Ad­ven­ture or learn­ing camps that are held out­side the city not only keep them busy with a host of ac­tiv­i­ties, they are also an im­por­tant ex­er­cise in per­son­al­ity de­vel­op­ment, con­fi­dence build­ing and so­cial de­vel­op­ment. Read on as we bring you groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions which can make this va­ca­tion a sum­mer to re­mem­ber for your child.

Youreka’s out­door camps can be a great op­por­tu­nity for your child to make friends and learn in an ex­cit­ing man­ner at the same time. With its 16 years of ex­pe­ri­ence and an im­pec­ca­ble safety record, Youreka of­fers ac­tiv­i­ties like trekking, rock climb­ing and archery amongst oth­ers. The camps use the out­door ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­i­ties to build lead­er­ship qual­i­ties in chil­dren.

One of the unique things about this camp is the ‘Cool Book’ which each child must have. These are re­flec­tion diaries which kids fill up ev­ery evening and then share their thoughts with their par­tic­u­lar groups. This sum­mer, Youreka is or- gan­is­ing camps at four camp­sites—there are three in the North of the coun­try and one in the South. The ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude out­door sur­vival, ver­ti­cal lim­its, moun­tain bik­ing, mount geo, jun­gle sa­fari, film craft, river­side back­pack­ing and raft­ing. In ad­di­tion, this year, they also have seven day ex­pe­di­tions which in­clude ex­cit­ing trips to Spain with ac­tiv­i­ties like sail­ing and

snorkelling.
