Children engage in hiking, camping, skiing, mountaineering, wildlife trips, rope courses, aqua sports, caving, jungle craft, cycling and Himalayan safaris.
Besides being a holistic approach to education, the Outward Bound programmes make considerable demands upon child’s intellectual, physical and emotional resources and endurance.
