P1 - Sitlakhet Day 5
The children came back from a memorable night out, staying in the jungle and cooking was the highlight. Nuts crushed in milkmaid and sandwiched in good day biscuits was the talking point as they walked back to the camp. Extreme Bikers went out for their temple run, a test of their stamina and will power. Out in the Open learnt route marking and signalling and No Idea were busy picking skills of belaying which they will use scaling the friendship ladder. Canvas painting and archery is scheduled for the afternoon. All children are doing well. The weather is warming up but very pleasant.

P1 - Sitlakhet Day 4
Fun games brought an eventful day to an end yesterday. Today started with children tuning into singing as they speak to follow the 'singing day' theme. Extreme bikers learnt the ledge roll and honed their biking skills, doing a short practice ride. Out in the open learnt survival skills such as navigation & tent pitching. No idea also went to learn survival skills this morning. After lunch, all three groups will pack their backpacks and head out for their night in the wilderness where they will apply all the survival skills they have learnt & cook their own dinner. Kids are all super excited for the day. All children are doing fine and the weather is extremely pleasant.

P1 finished an exciting day with minute to win it games for camp fun. The highlight yesterday was No Idea working with the villagers in making manure from cow dung and learning that cow dung is used for keeping the houses cool!

P1 - Sitlakhet Day 2
Kids reached campus yesterday at 4.15pm. A soothing and calm Sitlakhet greeted the children and the exhaustion of travel vanished almost immediately. Pakoras were wiped out in minutes & the hot beverages were much appreciated. After the camp briefing, the children had an orientation walk and later enjoyed the camp fun playing market place.
Out in the Open (bush craft), No Idea (ropes force) and Extreme Bikers (bike force) were up early, fresh and raring to go this morning. All groups will learn the basics of their activity & of trekking today to gear up for challenges in the coming days. Children are very excited. Warm milk with Bournvita, cutlet, toast, cornflakes and poha fuelled them up for high energy. The weather is excellent with turquoise blue sky and 20 deg temperature. Kids are happy to be away from the heat of the plains & in the lap of nature.
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.
