Indian educational system has over emphasized the school and syllabus to the exclusion of many other important aspects which contribute to the overall development of the youth's potential. To inculcate practical competence and the confidence in handling real life complex situations, the ability to comprehend, to communicate, to-relate, to analyze, and weigh options and learning to accept responsibility for one's decisions are as important, if not more, than only theoretic academic achievements. Another vital ingredients missing from formal education is the awareness of the interaction with nature, and empathy with outdoor life away from the distractions and pollution of the city life. As a result of these deficiencies, the process of learning and growing up has become an unbearably stifling and unpleasant burden, instead of being great fun and exciting adventure. Wanderlust seeks to redress these imbalances, with your co-operation.

Wanderlust has been organizing cultural and adventure tours for school children to many interesting parts of our wonderful country. On the strength of that experience, we are now offering an affordable, enjoyable program of outdoor living for students in our very own camps and resorts in North India.

The activities are aimed at education through adventure and learning by experience, comprising the following:-

  • Morning evening nature trails to familiarize the participants with flora & fauna, and the intricate web ecology, to arouse their curiosity and interest, leading to commitment and concern for conservation as they grow to adulthood. Practical hints on observation, documentation and nature photography are incorporated in the activity.
  • Sailing, kayaking & rowing, rafting on the river, to add fun and zest to life.
  • Obstacle courses consisting of Tarzan swings, suspended rope bridges elevated zigzag walks, rope climbing, tunnel crawling and monkey crawls on ropes.
  • Night adaptation and knowledge of night navigation by knowledge of major planets, stars and constellations.
  • Exciting treasure hunts, emphasizing the ability to search, to observe and to work as a team and lead.
  • Debates, group discussions, lectures, quiz competitions, easy writing and small scientific project, to tone observation, improve communication ability, building systematic approach and to reinforce confidence.
  • Outdoor techniques like bivocing, cooking, first aid, water purification's, rope knots, camouflage and concealment, route selection, silent approach and field signals, trekking, hygiene and sanitation.
  • General lake side relaxation on the 20 ft. Machaans and observation tower or the floating fun rafts with fishing rod or just cup of coffee.
