The Outdoor Kids Summer Camp was held from 17th April 2023 to 11th June 2023. It was aimed to provide children with a unique opportunity to engage in outdoor activities, develop essential running skills, and cultivate a love for an active lifestyle. Under the guidance of experienced runners (volunteers, facilitators) and physical fitness trainers, the camp offered a range of activities that encouraged physical fitness, teamwork, group activities, and personal growth.
The camp was meticulously planned. The kids were immersed in a variety of engaging activities, including outdoor games, sports, nature walks, team challenges, interactive workshops, and awareness campaigns with respect to civic sense toward a better tomorrow.
