With the current space race and pace with which space travel and technology is advancing, we intend to provide a platform for dreams and support young minds that believe they can make an impact in their modern and demanding industry.

We have observed that, irrespective of the language or social background, when you make  own rocket and launch it, everyone reacts in the exact same excitement.

Children's Adventure Camp- Space ProgramThrough an immersive experience of astronomy and space science workshops, students are introduced to creative thinking, innovation and exploration. This module helps them to apply their knowledge. The challenges are strategically placed so that it provokes critical thinking by combining inquiry and creativity led interactions.

Children's Adventure Camp- Space ProgramWe strongly believe that hands-on learning teaches us more than any classroom education. All activities in this program are designed with this in mind and we focus on letting the child experience the activities, reflect on them, form their own concepts and experimenting with the application of those concepts.

 

Children's Adventure Camp- Space ProgramAll the activities are based on the concept of Experiential Learning Technology, which means, all the activities are hands-on and learning based. Children get to explore possibilities on their own with expert guidance from our team.

LAFL encourages children of all ages to get in touch with their natural surroundings! With activities that foster a love of the outdoors and environmental sciences that can be initiated indoors and out. Society often overlooks the value of wilderness training and survival skills. We live among urban sprawls and in suburban epicenters – but there is still plenty of raw, untamed natural world left to explore.

Knowing a few basics of wilderness prep and survival is a good idea no matter where you live or what activities you participate in. And there’s no better time to acquire these skills than when you are young. By teaching children the basics, we are instilling life-long knowledge that could one day save their lives or the lives of others. Some of the most important “survival” techniques would be introduced to kids and presented in such a way that it’s not intimidating, but rather engaging and fun.

 

“Getting children interested in the outdoors and survival skills has been one of the major goals of my career and there is a lot of evidence that outdoor activities are enormously beneficial to the young.” – Prateek Deo , CEO LAFL

 

WILDERNESS SURVIVAL SKILLS OBJECTIVE

The objective of this children’s adventure camp is to connect children with nature in a fun-sharing environment. This is nature awareness adventure camp for kids that will cover the basic Wilderness survival skills. It will be structured for fun learning, with plenty of games, and creativity.

Our brief list of some of the activities your child will engage in:
 Ancestral Technologies such as:
 Learn Wilderness safety and knowledge of hazards
 Learn how to make a fire from sticks and friction and 1 match
fires
 Create your own survival camp fire making kit
 Wild craft a bag for your wilderness kit
 Wild crafting with medicinal plants and trees for healing salves,
tinctures, sprays, ointments and pastes
 Learn how to cook over the survival style cooking fire
 Experiential wilderness awareness games
 Hill exploration and discovery​
 Experience unique nature immersion and survival skills
through play, discovery, investigation and exploration.

 

SURVIVAL SKILLS OUTLINE

There are 5 basic survival skills that your child would learn …
1) Mindset
If you are caught in a situation where you actually need your survival
skills, the most important of all will be your attitude.

2) Water gathering
Focus on water. Find it, purify it, drink it, and store it for later.

3) Shelter creating
If you believe that you will have to overnight before being rescued the
next order of business is to get a shelter built.

4) Fire making
Fire is an important skill because losing body heat can kill you just as
quickly as lack of water.

5) Food
Keeping your energy up is important, you will be burning a lot more
calories than you are used to burning.

WHAT WE DO- WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT ?

In a time of earth’s fragile ecology, LAFL, help children connect with wonder and amazement to the natural world, growing their innate curiosity and passion for the earth and its flora and fauna. We do this through mentoring, guided creative exploration and hands-on discovery.

Why is this important?
We believe it is through having magical experiential nature mentors that students will be inspired to have both hope and solutions in an era of climate change and global environmental uncertainty.
We believe students, who are taught to fall in love with science through child-led nature mentoring, will be the ones who will be the pioneers of zero-impact, cradle to cradle manufacturing, and create bio mimicry designs to complex human challenges for a healthy planet. They will be the ones who inspire their own families and people in their communities, for seven generations and beyond.

HOW WE TEACH ?

We focus on child-directed experiential learning, acute observation
and inquiry, whereby students are “learning by doing”.
 Small groups
 Hands-on projects
 Guided exploration and Inquiry based learning
 Experienced educators & naturalists & artists
 Stories and games
 Student centered activities
 Acute observation and inquiry skills

What an awesome experience to ride from Guwahati to Arunachal Pradesh and back ( 1000 kms approx.) on a 350cc engine motorcycle, during the Ziro Music festival motorcycle trip 2019.

 

Wonderful co-riders made the journey more enjoyable – Shilpa Nalavade Kulkarni a professional Kathak dancer, Priti Jantre a film actress, Rajagopal – a geologist.

 

 

Attending the #ZiroFestivalofMusic was the icing on the cake of this trip.ziro motorcycle trip

ziro motorcycle trip Riding thru small villages in Ziro was a lifetime experience for me. The “Lal Chai” ( red tea) fuelled me quite often during the journey. The people there were laid back, content and mostly smiling.

Ziro motorcycle trip

It was tough and painful coming back from Ziro, I missed Ziro.
Memories of the wonderful place still lingers in my mind…

if u ever happen to visit Ziro…
hear the melancholy bird,
meet the paddy field workers,
visit the small hamlets,
climb the small hillocks,
drink the Lal Chai

don’t forget, to just stand still and soak the sunshine ,
don’t forget, to say hi to the ever smiling Apatani people,
don’t forget, to hear the winds sing…

and when u turn back to your city,
and then if u don’t miss Ziro,
it means u haven’t seen enough of Ziro.

go back again.
