(Recommended Age Group : 14+)
Life Skills Exploration Camp provides children with the opportunity to connect with nature, to participate in human powered activities, and to benefit from personal and primary relationships.
At camp, when children make new friends, explore the world around them, and learn that "I can" is much more powerful than "I can't", magic happens. In an environment created just for them, children learn real life skills, develop self-esteem, and gain a sense of independence and community. Whether children are playing, exploring nature, conquering new heights, or becoming part of a camp family, they are creating memories that will last a lifetime.
The motive of this camp will be a transformation of the children from “I” to “WE”.
Through various individual rope based adventure activities one can overcome factors like fear and through various team-based activities, the participant understands the importance of being a team player and the importance of working in a team.
Activities like Wilderness Survival Tips and demonstrations will give the participants an edge of learning the real-life skills and actual hands-on experience of the same.
Sessions like Disaster Management modules for Fire and water rescue along with Basic First Aid tips like bandaging and splinting will add to the general knowledge and equip the participant with more skills needed in case of any domestic emergency even in the family.
