Why Rocksport Residential Programs

A lot more than just sightseeing

While on a normal holiday, students visit places that are already known and commercialised, at Rocksport Residential Campsites, they spend more time exploring one place, learn about flora-fauna, understand the region’s socio-economic conditions and get a flavour of local cultures.

A lot more skills to learn

Our programs are designed to transform students and encourage positive habits like self-discipline, healthy eating and collaborative living. They are offered creative outlets to express themselves by journal writing, face painting and samba. Camp activities build leaders who are independent and accountable for themselves and their peers.

A lot more confidence to gain

During the program, students face various challenges, which they overcome by fighting their fears and taking independent decisions. They experience a sense of achievement as they complete tasks like mountain biking, caving, survival trekking, etc.

A lot more fresh air to breath

Students during the program tune in to the nature’s cycle and enjoy an active lifestyle. They follow a planned schedule through the day, become sensitive towards their surroundings and learn the importance of nature conservation.

A lot more Supervised & Safe

With India’s largest team of certified and first aid trained instructors, an in house nurse and a high ratio of 8 children per instructor, the safety on campus is assured. A back up vehicle is always at camp to handle any medical emergency. The equipment used in camps is best in class and UIAA / CE compliant, ensuring safety and quality. Camps have a healthy mix of male and female instructors and separate accommodation for boys and girls.

A Day at Camp

At Rocksport Residential Programs, experiences are designed in accordance with ayurvedic doshas to enhance self-discipline and promote an active lifestyle. The day is divided into 5 phases that aligns students with their natural body clock and helps them master the art of being their most productive selves.

6:00 – 9:00

Mastering the art of waking up early

This is the time of the day when rigorous exercise, breathing and meditation are most beneficial. Staying active and eating healthy keeps students energised throughout the day

Yoga

A 30 minute yoga session every morning prepares students mentally and physically to overcome challenges through the day.

Morning Exercise

An hour of exercise which includes stretching, jogging, push-ups, sit ups etc. acts as a perfect warm up for the tough physical activities that await.

Woody Buddy

There are interesting things to learn about trees, its leaves, fruits and flowers. At camp, students get to explore the flora-fauna in the jungle and gather collectibles in a nature journal.

Sunrise Trek

Watching the sun rise is an experience in itself. Students trek for a few meters up the hill to witness the first rays of the sun.

Confidence Courses

Students test their own limits by taking on obstacles such as Commando net, Tarzan swing, Balance beam, Mowgli walk and Hop scotch. They compete with their own selves and emerge more confident and focused.

9:00 – 2:00 PM

Mastering the art of hard work

The best time of the day to get things done and complete the most difficult tasks. The hardest challenges and the most important tasks can be easily completed during this phase.

Mountain Biking

Students ride an all-terrain bike (ATB) on off–road conditions. This activity teaches them the skill of endurance, balance and control.

Caving

Students explore natural underground passages and secret chambers formed by dissolved limestone rocks. It’s like seeing their geography textbooks come alive.

Raft Building

Students soak in some high-paced action as they partner up and build a raft. They paddle firmly to row past the finish line and emerge as champions!

Body Surfing

Students surf through gushing water streams and let loose to enjoy the chills as they bounce
their way from one place to another.

2:00 – 5:00 PM

Mastering the art of creative thinking

This time of the day is most suited to do creative thinking, problem solving or other activities that require brain power. Doing mental activities can reap wonderful rewards at these hours.

Face Paint

A clown, a ghost or a fearsome lord of the sea! Students get a chance to paint each other’s face with organic colours and don a new avatar for the day.

Samba

Students are encouraged to create music out of waste. They pick up whatever is lying around them and produce melodies.

Survival Skills
