Nature, adventure and outdoors can be very powerful tools to inculcate lifeskills, especially confidence among children. That is why Youreka!, iDiscoveri’s outdoor education division, is conducting a 10-day camp in United Kingdom. The aim is to help children understand the culture and civilisation of a different country.
The program will take children on nature and adventure activities at Royal Oak Adventure camps at Brecon Beacon, Wales, along with a culture tour of UK. The program is open for kids in the age group of 13-17 years.
The culture tour includes visits to St James’s Park, the Science Museum and the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Buckingham palace, Lords and Wimbledon, Oxford University, and a visit to Shakespeare’s birthplace. Later, the kids can also participate in sports. The tour will be lead by senior camp chiefs. The group will have a lady instructor as well.
