Outdoor education introduced in schools

Lo and behold adventure lovers bitten by the travel bug.

Many of us dream of making a living by travelling to the hills. We wish that we could just trek in the mountains without having to worry about the materialistic world. But travelling was never seen as something that could be pursued as a career. And so, nothing about it was taught to us in schools. Our academic courses never included learning about trekking, recognizing trees and their products or lessons on how to spend a night in the outdoors.

Outdoor education, a relatively new to schools in India, is slowly gaining acceptance with a few schools advocating outbound adventure based programs among students, to enhance personal growth through experiential learning and increase awareness about various subjects like the environment, ecology, wildlife, history, archaeology, geography and adventure sports. Some organizations that currently offer such programs for schools are OETS and Wide Aware in Mumbai, and Youreka and Ozone who offer open summer programs based out of Delhi in the north and Bangalore in the south.
