C4 - Chakrata Day 7
The day at the river yesterday was a lot of fun for the Red Star kids while the White star kids cenjoyed their Treasure Hunt. The kids put up a good Talent Night in the evening & then enjoyed some music & dance. It had rained just before dawn for a couple of hours. Kids are fine.
This morning, kids woke up to a cloudy morning. Seems like the weather gods are also sad to see the kids leave from camp. They packed their bags, cleaned up their tents & had breakfast. They then played the Youreka Premiere League followed by closing ceremonies where they shared their experiences & appreciated each other. They will leave campus by 2.30pm for their homeward journey. We hope you will listen to their stories & continue their regular exposure to nature & the outdoors. Research shows that nature is essential for the physical, emotional & mental well being of the children; apart from that, research is also showing that free play in the outdoors is very important in building life skills like problem solving, interpersonal relationships & conflict resolution.

C4 - Chakrata Day 2
The group reached the campus at 1:30 in the afternoon. They had their lunch & then had their campus orientation. They were allocated their tents and groups after that where they got to know who their tent mates were going to be. Expectations were shared amongst the groups and they played ice-breakers to get to know each other. The clever Red stars named themselves ‘Oye Idhar Aao’ while the “radiant” white stars call themselves the ‘Shining Whites’. All the kids showed their creativity in ad making during camp fun in the evening.
The morning brought a blanket of clouds that covered the sky. Despite this, the kids were excited for the activities. Post breakfast, team ‘Oye Idhar Aao’ went for a long hike while the ‘Shining Whites’ went for a relatively shorter introductory hike. Both teams have been introduced to mountain manners & ‘Leave No Trace’ principles. Kids are all fine & have had their lunch. They are now relaxing on campus, taking turns to bathe & waiting for their afternoon activities.
