S5 - Program Updates

S5 - Bairagarh Day 7
Yesterday's waterfall rappelling was the highlight of the trip for the kids. At night, many hidden talents came out of their shells & the kids then enjoyed dance and music after the Talent show. The music had to be stopped at 10.30 finally & the kids then reluctantly retired into their tents. This morning, kid did their closing ceremonies with sharing and appreciation. They had their lunch and then bid goodbye to the camp with mixed feelings. We hope you will listen to all their stories and continue their regular exposure to nature and the wonderful outdoors. Research shows that Nature is essential for the physical, mental and emotional well being of children while free play outdoors helps to build life skills like problem solving, decision making, risk taking and interpersonal relationships.

Kids are all doing fine & will prepare for their Talent Show this evening which they are looking forward to putting up.

S5 - Bairagarh Day 5
The group thoroughly enjoyed the nightout yesterday & were chatting round the bonfire after winding up dinner. They returned early by 5.30am this morning! The group relaxed and played before breakfast and then went for a challenging upstream walk. Kids will spend a relaxed afternoon making tie-&-dye bandanas. They are all doing well. It's a little cloudy on campus.

S5 - Bairagarh Day 4
The group enjoyed cliff jumping a lot yesterday and some did several jumps. After lunch, they set out for a visit to Rishikesh where they interacted with many people around the ghats. They got to experience Ganga Aarti in the evening which was a first for many. Some even sang bhajans there! This morning, the group went to learn survival skills in the morning, including tent pitching and fire making. Soon, they will pack their bags & head out for their night in the wilderness. They will navigate to a camping spot, set up camp & cook their own dinner. The group will return to camp tomorrow morning.

S5 - Bairagarh Day 3
Yesterday's uphill climb proved to be a challenging one as the kids were getting used to the gradients with their city legs :) They enjoyed the stream walk thoroughly. This morning, kids started the day with games at chota hazari and went for a cliff jump which they were totally looking forward to. Kids are doing great. It's hot and they love being in the cold river.

S5 - Bairagarh Day 2
Kids reached the campus at 3pm yesterday afternoon. The hungry kids immediately got to Lunch which was ready for them. Campus orientation and briefing followed and the kids then settled into their tents, getting to know their tent mates with whom they were going to stay for the next week. The bunch were quick to start playing together. They needed no ice breakers. Kho Kho was followed by expectation sharing and then Wag the Tail at camp fun.

This morning, energies were very high and kids were happy to welcome the Jaipur group to camp. Kids kick started the day on a high energy note at chota hazari. After breakfast, they went for an acclimatisation hike where they were (re)-introduced to LNT (Leave No Trace) principles and mountain manners. Kids have had lunch and will soon get into the river for a stream walk where they will learn to walk upstream in the river. They are all doing great.

Warmly,
Team Youreka
