Experiential outdoor school-trips that share the knowledge young explorers will find useful for living a healthier, fuller and more connected life
Basecamp Mussoorie: Located at an altitude of 7000 ft, we are ideally placed to curate outdoor trips through which students and explorers can learn about the Himalaya and also develop their own skills and knowledge about the great outdoors and environment around the region.
Our objective is to integrate outdoor programmes that provide a meaningful connection with nature and positively impact learning, through life-changing experiences that help in shaping responsible citizens.
Not Just A Summer Camp
With trees and the flowers in full bloom , summer is the month to try out new adventure and experience the thrill of outdoors to the fullest. Our 3-day to 5-day programmes include an introduction to the Queen of Hills -Mussoorie, and is a perfect time to cover all the raj era architecture on foot, wander through the local markets, integrate with community projects and a get hands on lesson on the region’s culture And heritage.
The Fall season opens up the skies to the horizon and surrounds Mussoorie with the splendid Himalayan snowline. The skies turn crisp blue , and it is a wonderful time to trek, camp and stargaze from hill tops. It is perfect weather for long and short treks, village walks, outdoor camps with glimpse of nature at its best.
Student & Faculty Programmes
Our 3-day to 7-day programmes are capacity building programmes where learning talks place in wild outdoors. The programmes are useful for both students and their mentors. A Perfect gateway from the confines of the classroom to make learning an effortless activity. Our programmes develop a respect for nature and eco-enthusiast for life.
We take the guess work out of programming, coordination, safety and fun, and provide full-day/overnight adventures that young explorers won't forget.
