Summer Camps for Kids

Summers are not just reserved for endless playtime with friends, TV marathons and chilling. Summer camp is an opportunity for children to be exposed to the best of human character. The traditional kids' summer camp, memorialised in countless Bollywood movies and childhood memories, is not faring well these days. Or so we think.

In reality, many spaces and people are making sure we never lose the summer camp culture. Here are a few summer camps for kids across India you can have an adventure at!

Munsiyari & Beyond - Shaama & Nachani

A pristine sun-soaked beach along the cool blue Ramganga is the location. Given its modest altitude, enjoying the warm sunny days and cool swims in the river, you can easily forget that the icy Himalayan peaks loom just around the bend from Munsiyari. Stay in neat alpine tents on the beach, ride mountain bikes, learn to guide Kayaks, catch fish in the river, hike along birding trails, explore vast caves, enjoy a delicious Kumaoni meal in the village and sleep every night under a star-cluttered sky.

The Munsiyari camp is for kids between the ages of 13 to 18 years. The stay is in a small stone cottage just above the beautiful Gyandhura village. The site offers a spectacular 270-degree view of the Himalayas up close, as the land drops away on all sides into vast forested valleys of the gleaming Ramganga below.

When: May 9 to May 18

Where: Delhi to Nachni, Shaama, Munsiyari and back
