The Adventure course basically deals with school students, teachers and adults who are exposed to various outward-bound activities like Trekking, Rock Climbing, Bush Craft, River Crossing, Lectures, Camping, Cooking, Navigation, study of flora and fauna, their conservation and many other activities. Through these activities, trainees realize the potential of their characters, strength and weaknesses, both physical and mental, and ability to lead an active life under any natural condition.
It teaches what no class room can teach, the course which inculcates in young minds and bodies the very essence of individual skills and team work. This course is very popular, heavily booked and invariably over subscribed by the leading schools of India.
