The driving philosophy behind Wildertrails is that the outdoors has a lot of lessons and benefits for us. This translates into three basic principles :
1. Wildertrails believes that facing the challenges of survival in the outdoors fosters self-reliance and bonding within the group. Hence, unlike most camps - which are run primarily for children - Wildertrails strongly advocates participation as family groups.
2. The sheer beauty of camp locations ensures that even though activities are physically tiring, the isolation from civilization brings peace, relaxation and rejuvenation. Thus, benefits are twofold: fitness through exercise and an unwinding from routine tensions.
3. Exposure to the outdoors automatically nurtures a respect - even awe - for nature, and opens up minds to the need for conservation. Constant and repeated exposure brings people face to face with pressing issues of conservation, creating a growing body of aware and conservation minded people.
In the last three years, Wildertrails has conducted a wide variety of camps across India. The hallmark of Wildertrails camps are the quality of locations visited, detailed planning, impeccable safety standards and dependable administrative backing, all of which go towards ensuring an enjoyable and rewarding experience
