CAMPING OUT

Outbound organizes and runs multi-day adventure camps during the summer and winter vacations, as well as during other longer holidays such as the Diwali break. These adventure camps are usually around the Sahyadris, not far from Mumbai, and are based at an established campsite or camping location from where we make day trips to lakes, forts, or climbing crags for different activities. These are not boot camps. They are group oriented where you learn to give and take. Many young people become regulars, coming back year after year and making many new friends and acquaintances

IN-CAMP ACTIVITIES

Many other activities are run in campsite itself. Activities range from pitching your own tents, to learning basic knots and rope work, team-building challenges, archery, canoeing and kayaking, fire lighting, basic rock climbing and rappelling. Fun outdoor games like patax, camp baseball and foxtail are an exciting part of the day's routine.
