Children love fun and adventure. However it is for us to provide them opportunities that are not only fun but are life time experiences for a lifetime of learning. Camps for youngsters and adults have been put together to allow for uninhibited exploration of Shoolagiri forests with passionate and talented naturalists. We want to keep alive an appreciation of beauty in the smallest things along with a sense of understanding of our place in the big picture. In these camps, we are essentially rediscovering who we are through hands-on exploration of our surroundings. In addition to being in the outdoors, next to a small lake surrounded by hills, participants will learn to pitch tents and experience being one with nature.
2015 butterfly workshop to be held on the 29th and 30th of August with butterfly expert Ashok Sen Gupta. It is a great opportunity to learn about butterflies through walks and presentations with Ashok Sengupta, in a camp that is surrounded by dry decidious forest hills on three sides. This is also a great opportunity for you to introduce young children to the beautiful world of butterflies. Basic meals will be provided at the camp. In the night, a small campfire would be setup under the beautiful night sky. Accommodation will be on twin sharing basis in camping tents.

Note:
1) Children (6 years to 12 years) - 50%. Children below 6 are welcome at our camp free of charge.
2) Food Includes Tea, Lunch, BBQ, dinner and breakfast. We have local villagers cook up the meals so please enjoy the simplicity of the food.

  • As a guest puts it "It's a place near this small village which makes it very rustic with no worldly amenities - no fast food, no junk food, no TV, no cell phones... A perfect place to just spend time with nature and each other."
  • Most of the team are naturalists or nature enthusiasts and are still under hospitality training. But we care and want to look after you.
  • The food is cooked by local villagers on firewood. Unfortunately, we are often running late serving food. Please feel free to get involved and ask for food to be cooked at the tree house infront of you.
  • We have dome tents that have custom made comfortable cotton futon mattresses. Good for 2 adults and a child.
  • The founders have worked hard to make nice western bathrooms. We count on local help to keep them maintained.
  • We strongly encourage you to bring marinated veggies/chicken to barbeque on the camp fire. We try and provide sweet corn for you to barbeque.
  • We have RO filtered water but don't have any beverages at the camp. We encourage you to get your own beverages, ice and healthy snacks.

Naturalist...Huh?

A naturalist is somebody who goes beyond the simple appreciation of the wonders of nature to actually understanding what makes it tick...digging beyond the basic visual to understanding why a bird might behave in a certain way, why certain species thrive in one place and not another, what does biodiversity mean and how do we conserve it....
