Uttarakhand (6 days/5 nights)
Camp Terra Firma
Uttarakhand - the land of gods, the home of Himalayas and truly a paradise on earth, allures everyone from everywhere. The fresh air, the pure water, the chilling snow, the adversing mountains, the scenic beauty, the small villages, the simpler people and a tougher lifestyle is what that distinguishes Uttaranchal from rest of the world.
Rishikesh – Tehri
Lying on the southern slopes of outer Himalayas, Tehri Garhwal, is the largest district of the Uttarakhand State. The most important attraction is the Tehri Dam, one of the world’s  largest hydro-electricity projects harnessing the waters of the two rivers of Himalayas Bhagirathi and Bhilangana. In fact, New Tehri is considered to be Asia's most comprehensive and successful rehabilitation programme. The gleaming township has developed into a lovely hill resort.

Mussorie (7 days/6 nights)
Camp Misty Mountains
Perched on a ridge, the ‘Queen of Hill Stations’ spends much of the year swathed in clouds. When the mist clears, views of the green Doon Valley and the distant white-capped Himalayan peaks are superb, and in the summer months the cooler temperatures and fresh mountain air make a welcome break from the plains below. It certainly gets cold up here in winter, with snowfall common in January.
Although Mussourie’s main bazaars can at first seem like a tacky holiday camp for families, there are plenty of walks in the area, interesting Raj-era buildings, and an upbeat atmosphere.

Camping in the Himalayas is perhaps one of the best ways to explore and enjoy the splendor of this amazing geographical wonder. Offering a variety of adventure and cultural activities, the itinerary is planned to give the students an opportunity to truly blend with the mountain lifestyle, be adventurous and glory in nature's majesty.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Adventure activities (white water rafting, rappelling, trekking, and bridge slithering) helping students to break mental barriers, overcome fears and help them emerge from their comfort zones
  • Inculcating a love for the outdoors and learning to adjust in the natural environment with basic necessities in an overnight bivouac in the woods
  • Stargazing and team building games
