 Want to teach your child about outdoor living and wilderness survival skills?

The much awaited Children’s Adventure Camp,  is back with a fresh exotic location and a bunch of all new adventure activities.

This is a 3-day adventure camp is a – Wilderness Survival Special – filled with activities like zip lining, Kayaking, tent pitching coupled with sessions on rope knots, team building and plenty of adventure games.

Wilderness Survival Skills

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 epicentres – 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.

 

“At LAFL, we believe that grasping important skills through activities, crafts, books, and projects don’t just provide central learning, but offer appreciation and enjoyment for the subjects being explored. 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 objective

The objective of this children’s adventure camp is to connect children with nature in a fun sharing environment. This is a 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.

What we do:

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.

Our caring staff uses ancestral teachings and primitive technologies to build upon children’s reverence and to create lifelong stewards of the natural world

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.

Who can participate?

Participants include ALL children between age group of 7 to 14 yrs

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

LAFL foundation program :

The CHILDRENS ADVENTURE CAMP is our foundation program,designed for both new and returning campers.  Get back to your roots and learn the philosophy of living close to nature, wilderness survival, and nurture your connection to the earth.  We will explore the surrounding forests, swim in mountain streams, as we discover more about the magical world of nature through building natural shelters, making fires, and preparing food.

Campers gain self-esteem, work cooperatively and make new friends, as they gain confidence in both living and feeling at home in the natural world.  This is a camp where campers are truly looked after and cared about.  It is a safe place where kids can try new things and discover more about who they are.  Evenings are spent circled around the campfire telling stories, star gazing, laughing a lot.

A poem dedicated to everyone

We all came as strangers
We all left as friends
In just 3 days
Our sadness did end

We all made friends
Time cannot replace
We all did activities
With absolute grace

So basically this is a thank you
A thank you to u all
For getting us on our feet
For making us stand proud and tall??
