A Camp was organised for the Camp Craft children to Rivergati Resort, Karjat for two days 17th & 18th of March 2019 by Rayomand & Company.
The children engaged in meaningful and enjoyable activities. It gave them an opportunity to develop various skills like painting, drawing, dancing, observing etc. An even platform was given to all kids to explore and express their creative ability. The children were sensitized towards their environment through nature treks by environment enthusiasts. They were encouraged to observe nature closely – the butterflies, insects and appreciate the bounties of nature. The children were explained the importance of conserving forest and lending a hand in maintaining its beauty and diversity.
The guide teachers Mr. Thomas and Mr. Rayomand encouraged the children to ask questions, to make the session interactive and they dispelled various myths that the children had about how man interacted with nature.
They were an enthralled audience as they took the path to the riverside, identifying different birds, trees and a plethora of other creatures that made nature beautiful.
The campers stayed in well-furnished tent rooms. The wake-up whistle was given at 6:30 am. Students organised themselves into four groups, each headed by a leader. Students learned organization skills, values like leadership, co-operation and team work. Students enjoyed adventure activities like zip rope, river crossing, net crossing, commando walking etc. their activities enhanced their team spirit and challenged their physical parameters.
The children were exposed to a host of activities where they had to organize programmes for the campfire.
Overall the camping experience was very meaningful and enriching.
