After the heartening success of summer camps in the Himalayas, we are announcing a Winter Camp for children closer home. This will be conducted during the winter holidays at the Indiahikes Southern Campus, close to Bengaluru in Karnataka.

The Indiahikes Winter Camp is a 3-day programme where children go on trekking adventures and camp outdoors. 

During the Winter Camp, children will trek to the ancient Channarayana Durga Fort and camp near its base, at the Indiahikes Southern Campus. They’ll learn crucial camping and trekking skills like, pitching their own tents, navigating their way. They’ll also connect deeply with nature by learning about the biodiversity in the Tumkur and Madhugiri district, by birding and also stargazing on clear December nights.

For over eight years, we have taken thousands of children trekking in and around Bangalore. We notice extraordinary changes in the children within just 4-5 hours of trekking. They discover a new connection to nature, find an unknown confidence in themselves, and unlock a different level of camaraderie with their peers.

So if your child is between the ages of 10 and 16, the Winter Camp is a priceless adventure tailored for the Winter Holidays.
