NRPF4 - Junga Day 5 06 May 2019
Yesterday's activities were enjoyed by the kids and Treasure hunt was a hit. The excitement continued with the Talent show & musical night in the evening. This morning, kids woke up, packed their bags, cleaned their tents and had breakfast. After which, they played a high energy game of Youreka Premiere League where teams pitted against each other. Kids sat down for the closing ceremonies with sharing and appreciation soon after. They have had lunch & will leave campus for their homeward journey. 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.
