‘Adventure sports for students are highly motivational and practical which are unlikely to be seen from the normal classroom environment.’
Adventure aims at increasing productivity, encourages students to work in different working environments, it builds team spirit, friendship and trust amongst each other. In order to inculcate different life skills, Gyan Devi Salwan Public School in collaboration with NIRMIT, organised an adventure Camp at Padampuri in Uttarakhand for the students of classes VI – VIII from 21st May’22 to 24th May’22 and X- XII from 29th May to 1st June’22.
Away from the hustle bustle of city life, the students accompanied by their mentors, reached Padampuri where delicious meals and fun activities awaited them. There were different activities which targeted at improving their balance between physical and mental health. The students were divided into groups and each group was assigned a group leader to perform these activities.
The young Salwanians gained new perspectives as they got to face different obstacles in the form of activities like Burma Bridge, Commando Net, Tyre Maze, Zip lining,Rope climbing,Trekking, River crossing etc. These activities helped them evaluate their strength and also helped them build their personality unique and distinguishable. Students also participated in cultural activities which were held during the evening time.The amount of enthusiasm exhibited by the students were enthralling.
When the students got involved in various activities they learnt to build good relations with their peers, nurtured their problem-solving skills, and learnt to respect the fellow team members . The members of the camp guided the students at each point of time.
It was a complete fun filled getaway with invigorating energy and the students returned with memories to be cherished forever.
Another group of 46 students from Class X and XII were taken for Adventurous trip to Padampuri for 3 days and 3 nights from 29th May to 1st June. It was full of exciting and adventurous activities enjoyed by students in the hills.
