Brief itinerary flow: Participants arrive at the campsite for breakfast. After checking into the beautiful campsite, their activities begin. Throughout the day, they are busy – getting little time to miss their homes!!! The typical day begins at daybreak – after freshening up, the group has milk and biscuits. They start their day with exercises and a few running games. This warms them up for the day long activities. They return for a hearty breakfast. The food is simple, wholesome and tasty – to the liking of that age group. We also ensure that it is not oily or spicy. The water at the campsite is filtered and safe. Breakfast is followed by a whole lot of games and activities. These games are played outdoors. They are played in a way to make the kids make new friends and learn caring and sharing with each other. They then have a short walk to the neighbouring meadow or ride to the Emu farm. End of the activity time leads to bathing and freshening up. After a sumptuous lunch, the group stays indoors. It is here that they learn different art forms like paper craft, clay modeling etc. They also get time to prepare their skits and dances. Some kids may use this time to catch up on a little sleep. The evening session begins with snacks and milk or juice. Kids are then introduced to new field games or enjoy a game of football. They also get time to visit the animal farm – to meet ponies, goats and cows. A walk into the vegetable growing area is helpful to understand the language that Mom uses – ripe, unripe, seeds, pods and fresh vegetables. Kids also pick vegetables for their meals. After enjoying their dinner, the little campers are tired yet wanting to do something productive… they end up preparing for the campfire songs or dance performance. Lights out is by 9.30 – giving them sufficient time to sleep peacefully – considering that another day of activities awaits them.
