Participation in Adventure Activities
inculcates the spirit of Adventure and helps in building stamina, will power,
confidence, team spirit, comradeship and spirit-de-corps, thus directing energy
in the right and purposeful direction and helps in character building. While
working individually as well as collectively in association with nature and
under adverse conditions, participation in adventure activities offers the
ideal atmosphere for character building & leadership.
During its existence of 40 years, the Department has trained
more than 80,000 people, both male and female, from India and abroad in different
disciplines of adventure activities. The Institute has introduced Requirement
based /Customised Adventure Courses for large Organisations like Kendriya
Vidyalaya Sangathan, Schools, Colleges, Universities, NCC, Scouts etc. During
the year (April to Oct, 2003), the Institute has already trained more than
17,000 students (April to Oct) in different disciplines of Adventure activities.
Majority of the students were sponsored by the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan
(KVS), Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India, New Delhi, and the remaining came
as individual from all over India. Introduction of such Requirement based/Customised
Courses has proved very successful and educative for the students. The KVS
intends to give Adventure Training exposure to same number or more students
is being earmarked for the next year (2004) also.
This Institute is the largest training centre during the
year more than 17,000 schools students from all over India have been trained.
Participation in adventure activities will be very useful for college and
university students to channalise their energy towards right direction, develop
confidence, help in character building, national integration and create awareness
about environment protection. Keeping in view the importance and necessity
of the Adventure in the life of School/ College /University students, it is
proposed to organise the following Adventure Activities during summer 2006
and onwards in the state Of Himachal Pradesh: -
