Bombay Scottish - Bhillar Day 5
Kids put up a lovely Talent Show with singing, dancing, mimicry, rap last night. The rest were cheering throughout. They loved the dance time after dinner where the teachers joined them. Kids are totally hooked to the energisers and ended the night with a medley!
This morning, the group woke up, packed their bags, cleaned their tents & had their closing ceremonies after breakfast. They started on their homeward journey soon after. We hope you will listen to all their stories and continue their regular exposure to nature and the outdoors. Research shows that regular exposure to nature can reduce stress and anxiety and increase energy and creativity. Nature is essential to the physical, mental & emotional well being of our children.

Bombay Scottish - Bhillar Day 4
The day yesterday was hectic but everyone had a good time. Strawberry plucking was the highlight. Many of them wanted to go back to plucking. The service projects at the village went off really well. The students prepared with skits in Marathi and Hindi. They painted some dustbins and made some charts with messages on them and put them at different areas in the village. They later played Kho Kho, did energisers and sang with the school children. Evening was free and easy.
Today started with a medley of energisers followed by breakfast and then activities where the groups swapped once again to activities they have not done yet. After lunch, the groups pitted against one another in a high energy Helter Skelter round. Weather is pleasant and kids are enjoying.

All the groups have swapped activities from yesterday for both morning & afternoon sessions. The weather is very pleasant and kids are all enjoying very much!

This was her 6th Camp!
I have sent my daughter almost every year to a Youreka camp since she was age 9. So this was her 6th camp. She has gone to different locations and I have always been very happy about the arrangements and activities we chose. In this day and age of gadgets and distractions, Youreka is like a breath of fresh air. So many life skills and survival skills are taught. I personally have Youreka to thank for how she has shaped up as a person. Learnt to be independent and open to adventures. Three cheers!
New Story Everyday!
It is almost 4 months now since my daughter attended the J4 2016 at Youreka as a White Star participant. Till today hardly a day goes by without some new story from camp suddenly remembered, or some moment relived!
Went to a Youreka camp 17yrs ago...
I went to a Youreka camp about 17 yrs ago -- and I still remember it as the most positive and fascinating experience of my life at the time. I have camped in other places and countries since -- but heck, I miss the experience which Youreka provided when I was a kid.
"Absolutely amazing n awesome experience my holiday could not have been better than this " This is what my daughter said as soon as she met me .
New level of enthusiasm and confidence!
It gives me immense pleasure to share that the class 11 camp to Kambre has had a different impact on our students and educators. The students have thoroughly enjoyed all the activities they were exposed too. They also shared the interactive sessions which were handled by your team. The exposure provided to them has lifted them to a whole new level of enthusiasm, energy, confidence and attitude.
Wonderful Experience with Youreka. Everything was properly planned. Nice Hospitality, neat and clean place to stay. Tasty Food and amazing Mentors.. Looking forward for many more experience
I found her different, changed and very confident
When I received Meher at the railway station on the 20th of June, I found a different, changed and very confident Meher. There was something different about the way she was carrying herself. Her body language had changed. This very Meher who was so scared of dogs before she went for this trip, was actually getting a stray dog to smell her hand so as to get friendly with it. it took her 3, 4 days to get over the disappointment of coming back from the camp. She has shared so much with us and wants to go back every year. We as parents are very happy and thrilled and wish to thank everybody in The team Youreka for fantabulous work they do. Thanks once again.
