It’s aptly said that healthy mind resides in a healthy body.’
‘Adventure sports enables a person to come out of his comfort zone and perform a task beyond one’s limitation. It also increases brain to body coordination and elevates concentration levels and sense of balance in athletes. The adventure sports keeps one fit, builds self confidence, enhance observational and social skills. It also improves team building and bonding thus utilizing one’s inner strength to the fullest.’
Living to the motto of ‘Learning beyond classroom’ and providing holistic development to the future nation builders, Sri Venkateshawar International School, Sector -18 in collaboration with Rocksport, organized an Adventure cum Leadership camp in the school premises. The Adventure Camp was organized for the students of classes I to III and from VI to VIII on 18 March, 2019 to instil different life skills and true essence of living amongst them. The students were categorised into different groups namely Black Panther, Gangster and Rockstar with a group leader assigned to each team. The participants were exposed to diverse adventure activities like Commando Net, Wall Climbing, Commando Crawl, Swinging Bridge, Burma Bridge, Hop Scotch, Zorbing, Tent Pitching, etc.
The young enthusiasts experienced a different perspective towards life by participating in adventure sports which helped them to build self-esteem, management of fear and realisation of their inner strength. It also acted as their stress bursting therapy and relaxation of body, mind and soul as they gained rich experience of facing such obstacles in the form of adventurous activities. These activities also helped the children to become stronger, equipped and unique with better understanding of life skills and how to communicate and work in coordination within a group.
The teachers and members of the Rocksport Camp guided the students throughout the session that helped them to exhibit their talent confidently and with great zest.
The students were highly motivated, enriched and felt energised with the enthralling life experiences that would always enable them to become a confident, well informed and a true leader. The fun filled and exciting day thus concluded with enriching experience that would remain as fond memories to be cherished forever.
