GIRIVIHAR, has since its conception in 1964, been devoted to outdoor adventure activities like hiking, rock climbing and mountaineering.

Adventure Activities inculcate courage, patience, determination, leadership, confidence, team spirit and cultivate a love for the environment and respect for nature.

For children, the time is ripe to learn these skills because in tomorrow’s competitive environment, these will prove to be skills rudimentary to survival. And slowly, but surely, this idea is gaining acceptance in our country. Many prestigious schools have an ‘Outdoor Education Programme’ as part of their regular curriculum.

With this in mind that GIRIVIHAR conducts the Annual Adventure Camp for children (Age group 9 to 13 yrs ).

The 26th Adventure Camp will be conducted from 24th to 29th December 2016 at a camp site near village Chasole, Tokavade ahead of Murbad off Malshej Ghat road. Camp site is located at about 110 kms from Mumbai;

As a parent who leaves no stone unturned for the child’s development, we are sure you will find this camp an attractive proposition. Of course, a question most likely to occur to you will be, why you must choose GIRIVIHAR’s camp for your kids…… Here’s the answer.
