This summer, let your child immerse in the beauty and tranquility of Western Ghats while she/he reconnects with nature and learns to appreciate the beauty around. Let them experience the sight of beautiful sunset, the freshness of pristine mountain water, the sounds of chirping birds as they lay on hammocks, walk around the woods. Let them experience the beauty in nature and within themselves while they work on different outdoor activities with their head, heart and all senses, explore village life, learning to think sustainably and about sustainability as they make new friends and have lots of fun.

About the campsite
The campsite, Malajodi farms located in the foothills of Kudremukh ranges of Western Ghats makes it ideal for nature exploration. The highly skilled and experienced staff do their best to ensure a secure environment for the children at Malajodi farms. We keep two vehicles on standby to handle any emergencies. We are also looking forward to having volunteer parents at the camp who can support us in providing the best experience for all the children at the camp. While it is a learning experience for the parents and an opportunity to immerse in nature, it will be a great support for the field staff.
