Beginning from July 17, the 10-session learning programme over 5 weekends spanning till mid-August will encourage participating children to take part in every learning and fun activities.

The course has been curated by TSAF mountaineering experts with over 20 years of experience. This fun and learning journey will help participants to expand their exposure to the world beyond the confined walls of their respective homes with the correct guidance and motivation.

The elite Jamshedpur-based adventure outfit defines a healthy and happy kid, who not only has knowledge about the world and capacity to face real life problems and work out solutions besides being physically fit and good in academics. "The programme also includes some outdoor activity along with physical workouts like kids’ yoga, meditation, fun workouts in virtual mode," a TSAF official said.

Notably, the first season was a great success with participation of 150 kids from different parts of the country. The guardians of the kids who participated in the first season were of the view that the course design was completely unique and noble while the sessions on mountaineering, first aid and environment were very enriching for kids.

TSAF has been conducting virtual programmes to keep kids busy in Covid times. It had conducted virtual lessons to help children between the ages of 5-9 remain tuned to sport climbing while at home last year. Wooden boards called ‘monkey boards’ measuring 2x2 ft were handed over to the children and fixed at their respective homes. The activity was aimed at strengthening the hands and core muscles of the kids.

The adventure outfit also conducted a virtual programme for school students last month with the aim to motivate and keep them engaged in the comfort of their homes.
