Our school organized ‘Camp Anubhav’ for students ofclasses V to IX at Tiger Sanctuary, Jim Corbett Park. This trip was an experiential learning for the students. They indulged in various adventure activities, visited nearby places, exchanged notes with the local inhabitants and learnt new skills. At the camp, the days were divided into 5 phases to align the students with their natural body clock. Each phase provided a specific experience in accordance to Ayurvedic ‘Doshas’ to enhance different qualities or ‘gunas’. The Adventure began at the outset of the journey. Students had to undertakea 8 km. jeep ride and cross a dry river bed en-route to reach the camp site. They explored through nature walks and jeep safari. They tracked tigers during the first night out itself, discovered pugmarks and watched elephants, deer, monkeys and exotic birds in their natural habitat. The hammock and the unhindered view of the starry night ‘exported’ them to a different planet altogether. While some Camp activities were meant to teach the students how to be independent and self - reliant, indulging in group activities made them aware of the importance of team work. Thus they acquired new strengths and became responsible individuals by pushing themselves physically and mentally.
