Camp Yercaud Program Updates

Youreka Adventure camps in India Yercaud1

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 scroll down and see the update for your camp code.

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 www.facebook.com/Youreka 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.

J7 - Yercaud Day 7
Last night's talent & DJ night was enjoyed by all the kids and they did not want it to end. Kids woke up this morning, packed their bags, cleaned their tents and had breakfast. After breakfast, they had a high energy round of the Youreka Premiere League where the teams pitted their skills against each other. They then sat down for their closing ceremonies with sharing and appreciation. They bid their goodbyes with mixed feelings after an early lunch, sad to leave but excited to be going home. 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.

J7 - Yercaud Day 6
It's Twins Day on campus and kids have chosen their twin. It's amusing to watch them all twinning! Blabber Mouths & No Idea had a great nightout and returned this morning excited with their experiences too. Unique Yourekas had the campus to themselves yesterday evening. They played Market Place at camp fun & this morning were happy to greet their friends as they all returned from their nightout. After breakfast, Unique Yourekas & Blabber Mouths both went for a refreshing stream walk while No Idea went for a long ride applying all their skills. After lunch, No Idea will be doing their challenge day with an obstacle course while Blabber Mouths will do creative work making Thank you cards and Unique Yourekas will engage in a Treasure hunt. Kids are all looking forward to putting up their Talent Night in the evening. They are doing fine.

J7 - Yercaud Day 2
The group reached campus yesterday in 2 batches with the Bangalore group reaching by 3.30pm. Hope you received our sms. Kids were tired and hungry and immediately got to their lunch. They settled into their tents after a campus orientation, got to know their tent mates and then got into their activity groups and played games. In the evening, they played Wag the Tail which all of them enjoyed. 

This morning, kids woke up fresh. Their energy is super high and they did not really need energising at chota hazari. There are 2 white star groups & 1 red star group. Rock Force has named themselves Blabber Mouths, Bushcraft named themselves Unique Yourekas & Red star Biking is called No Idea. After breakfast, both Blabber mouths and Unique Yourekas went for a hike and learnt Mountain Manners and Leave No Trace principles. No Idea went to learn basics of the bike and biking. all the kids are fine & excited.


Warmly
Team Youreka
