"Nature is a tool to get children to experience not just the wider world,but themselves."- Stephen Moss
Ahlcon Public School organised a Rocksport Residential Program at Chail, around 360 kms from Delhi, in Himachal Pradesh for the students of classes IX and XI during their summer vacations, from 16th May to 20th May,2023. The objective of this program was to give the students a power packed experience which enables them to enhance their confidence , be independent and also acquire new skills.
The students participated in various activities under the able guidance of their Rocksport Instructors and supervision of their teachers for three days. They learnt camping manners , Tent pitching, Scrambling, knot making, Journal writing, Zip line , Guerilla warfare etc. They also went on a Trek into the forest to connect with Nature. Not only this they relaxed in the evenings around the Bonfire with songs, music and dance. They also had star gazing and navigation sessions where they learnt how to find their direction in the forest using a compass in case they lost their way.
Overall the students had a very enriching and unique experience as they learnt about the simplicity of life, disconnecting from technology and immersing themselves in the present moment. They discoveredthe importance of teamwork, as they collaborated to set up their tents, cook meals and navigate through the wilderness. They also developed a deep respect for Nature, understanding the need to preserve and protect the fragile ecosystem that provides all with such incredible beauty and solace.
The breathtaking landscapes, the warmth of the campfire and the camaraderie among friends created memories which will foreverstay etched in their hearts.
