BANGALORE: Wilderness camps have been on the summer itinerary of urban children for almost a decade now, tailor-made to suit individual inclinations. Despite several players in the field, the littleknown fact is that safety standards are not always up to the mark, right from the equipment provided to children, where activities such as mountain climbing and white water rafting can prove to be dangerous if ill-equipped.
One of the more recent outfits in the field of adventure sports is ‘inme’, whose holistic concept, multi-layered activities, and above all, safety measures are quite impressive, as much as its exotic destinations. One has met with the participants of ‘inme’ in the past two years, noted the overall inputs that go into a trip, and examined their safety standard, only to come out satisfied that children are in particularly safe hands. The adult-child ratio of 1:4-the highest in the country, the maximum camp size of 75 children to help healthy interaction, international instructors from the US, Ireland, and Australia, and tie-ups with wellknown adventure and logistics companies auger well.
The contents of the camp also go beyond standard outdoor activities.
Learning life skills through fun is the matrix of inme, brought about through staying outdoors, facing physical challenges, creative interactions, community work and informal exchanges.
“We offer fantastic learning experiences as we engage children in handson experience”, Gaurav Saklani, COO, inme, told Expresso. The ‘Wonderful Outdoor World’ or WOW opened up by inme includes rock climbing, back packing, white water rafting, outdoor skills, mountain biking and low ropes courses, while the ‘cool’ activities comprise aero modelling, astronomy, magic, theatre, photography, dance and air rifle shooting, with a tie-up with Catalyst Global of UK to weave activities on team work, creativity, adaptability and bonding, says Junaid Hussain, coordinator.
Comprising certified and experienced specialists from across the globe, and backed by state-of-the-art equipment, inme, founded by the alumni of IIM and XLRI among others, brings in their proficiency in behavioural training and organizational learning to offer a meaningful package of fun-filled learning for children.
