ACJ6 - Yercaud Day 4
Yesterday's Talent night went very well & kids enjoyed. It is a sunny day today and after breakfast, there was an energetic game of Youreka Premiere League where the teams pitted against one an another! Kids then did their closing ceremonies with sharing and appreciation. They have had lunch and are ready to bid goodbye to the campus & staff that have cared for them over the past few days. We hope you will listen to all their stories and continue their regular exposure to nature and the outdoors. Research shows that Nature is essential for our physical, emotional & mental well being. It reduces incidences of stress and depression and boosts energy and creativity. Outdoor play with peer group is the best thing to build life skills and needs to be built into our children's routine.

Both the groups went out for activity after unpacking and breakfast. One group went for rock climbing and the other went for rappelling. They will swap the activity in teh afternoon session. Kids are looking forward to the talent and DJ night that will happen after reflection & soup. Weather is bright & sunny.

ACJ6 - Yercaud Day 2
Kids had fun yesterday evening playing ping pong. This morning, they woke up fresh, ready for their activities. They started the day with exercises at chota hazari. After breakfast, kids went to learn survival skills. They navigated themselves to a spot after learning how to use the compass and map. They also learnt fire making and tent pitching. These skills are now ready to be applied this evening during the night out. Kids will trek to a camping spot, pitch their tents, set up a fire & cook their own dinner. They will sleep in the wilderness tonight & return to camp tomorrow morning. All are doing fine!

ACJ6 - Yercaud Day 1
ACJ6 group reached camp safe and sound at 1.30pm. We hope you got our sms. They were welcomed by a hot lunch and cool climate. They are now having their campus briefing and orientation and will settle into their tents. The plan is to get them into the activity groups and do expectation sharing along with a short trek. After snacks, they will spend some time getting acquainted with their cool books and the idea of reflection. This will be followed by hot soup and camp fun time! Lights out will be early after dinner so that they can rest and recover for the exciting activities ahead! Kids are doing fine.
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.
