Expedition & Camps
No child in growing years should be devoid of a sense of excitement and adventure. These opportunities enhance a child's sense of environmental awareness and self-esteem.
Adventure sports form an important part of the School curriculum. The School is able to take advantage of its splendid location in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayas. Adventure activities include white water rafting and para- sailing, which are voluntary, and mid-term treks and expeditions.
A mid-term break, every term, is utilized for compulsory, but age- appropriate expeditions i.e. Mountaineering, trekking, kayaking, white water rafting, campsing etc. The planning and execution is the responsibility of the girls themselves, advised by a Staff co-ordinator
Children are taught survival skills and respect for nature, school expeditions, with specific aims and objectives are mounted, ranging from Relief work to scientific exploration or simply to test endurance and develop the spirit of adventure. In addition to the mid-term breaks adventure activities are provided on certain weekends to break the mundane school routine. Children learn to help each other and build a sense of flexibility, comradeship and perseverance through these treks.
An indemnity bond has to be signed by parents/guardians before a child goes out on such excursions.
