Camp Jayalgarh Program Updates

Youreka New Delhi

Dear Parent,

Your Child is Safe with us. No News is good news because we will call you if there is an issue. So plan your own holidays and enjoy your time out from kids while we take care of them. If you must know what's happening at camp, please click on the campus name for your child's camp on the right side and read the update here.

Please note:

  1. Updates are posted once a day around 2:00 pm.
  2. Photos are posted only when the kids return from camp as there is only intermittent internet connectivity at our wilderness sites and we like to keep it that way.
  3. Photos will be posted on our Facebook page once the child returns
  4. We do not allow talking to the child while on camp. You may call our Delhi office at 011-40801100 or 1800-1033301 to inquire. 
  5. In case of Emergency only, please call 8130941100. This number is answered between 8pm and 11pm.

YEW2 Program Update

17 June 2018

YEW2 – Jayalgarh Day 6
Last night’s talent show was a fun affair of magic show, singing & dancing. Kids enjoyed the evening of celebration. This morning, kids woke up to a pleasant romantic morning – a slight drizzle, cool temperatures & the clouds were low. They did their closing ceremonies with sharing & appreciation after breakfast & left the campus at 11.40am 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.

YEW2 – Jayalgarh Day 5
Yesterday afternoon, the group got back to camp for a late lunch, tired but happy. They then got onto a spell of creativity & expression with the campus newspaper where they made anything from a gossip tabloid to wilderness news to current affairs! In the evening, after soup, they created a newsroom scene with journalists, news anchors & the works!

Kids were all ready this morning, raring to go for their final run on the river – a 25km run from campus to Deoprayag with a high cliff jump along the way! They are all dressed as pirates, hoping to loot an unsuspecting raft along the way! In the evening, they will put up their Talent show & enjoy their last night on campus with music & dance. All kids are doing fine.

YEW2 – Jayalgarh Day 4
It started raining yesterday while the kids were just finishing rappelling. They returned safe & sound & spent the evening chilling & playing games. The evening had become a little cold which the kids enjoyed.
Kids started the day with energisers & then made tattoos on each other while having breakfast. After breakfast, they went to Upper Srinagar for rafting. Today’s stretch is more challenging & will test some of the techniques they have learnt over the past 2 days. They will raft down to Bagwan & do bridge slithering before returning to camp. Weather is cloudy, temperatures are lowered & energy is high!

YEW2 – Jayalgarh Day 3
Kids had a lot of fun doing the stream walk yesterday afternoon. In the evening, after snacks & reflection, they played a noisy game of marketplace during camp fun which they all enjoyed.
Kids woke up to cloudy skies today which lowered the heat levels. They dressed up their hairs in funky manners & then went for their fist rafting run on the river, from lower Srinagar to the camp. Along the way, they learnt to flip & reflip their rafts. After lunch, they will go for rappelling. Kids are all doing great and having fun.

YEW2 – Jayalgarh Day 2
Yesterday, the kids arrived late on campus due to delays on the train. We hope you got our sms. They were refreshed by the sight & sounds of the river. After lunch, they did expectations sharing & then got into the river without wasting any time. They started with body surfing, ducky ride & a cliff jump. In the evening, they played team games & had lots of fun with human knots & body parts.

Weather is warm & sunny today. Kids want to be in the waters & that’s what they will get. They learnt paddling, eddying & did kayaking in the morning session & in the afternoon after lunch, they will go for a stream walk. Kids are enjoying the activities and having a gala time in water. Team bonding is really good!
