ON A NA­TURE TRAIL

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNJABI -

Bring­ing city kids closer to na­ture, Camp Anub­hav pre­sented by Rock­sport Ad­ven­ture helps in­cul­cate life skills, es­pe­cially con­fi­dence among chil­dren. “Par­tic­i­pat­ing in out­door camps builds en­ergy and in­spires the spirit of ex­plor­ing the un­known. The good part is that par­ents are be­com­ing more aware about the pos­i­tive as­pects of ad­ven­ture camp­ing,” says Piyush Khan­del­wal, Founder Di­rec­tor, Rock­sport Ad­ven­ture. This sum­mer, the camps will be or­gan­ised at Naini­tal, Shimla, Jim Corbett and Rani Chauri. These camps are not just about fun and games, but also fo­cus on train­ing tech­niques to sur­vive in the jun­gle. Trained in­struc­tors teach par­tic­i­pants the ba­sics of sur­viv­ing and fac­ing ad­ver­si­ties in the great out­doors. So, one learns how to read maps, rope climb­ing, ri­fle shoot­ing, horse rid­ing, build­ing pa­per shel­ters and light­ing a camp fire. All of the staff mem­bers here are cer­ti­fied in­struc­tors from pres­ti­gious in­sti­tutes such as Nehru In­sti­tute of Moun­taineer­ing (Ut­tarkashi). In­struc­tors also ed­u­cate par­tic­i­pants through games and in­ter­ac­tive ac­tiv­i­ties about en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness.
