Scout Camp to Khapoli

The scout boys of Std.8th and 9th went for a scout camp to Khapoli on 17th Feb to 19th Feb. We assembled in the school and left at about 6:30am by bus to reach the Nature Hunt Campsite by 9:00am. We started our camp with flag hoisting followed by a session on hand and whistle signals. In the afternoon, we had another session on First-Aid. Later, in the evening, a campfire was organised in which we performed many amazing activities. The next day started at 6:00am. We had the Scout exercise and then we went for trekking to a battlefield called Umberkhind where Shivaji Maharaj won the battle against the Mughuls. We returned to the campsite and had the flag hoisting event. Then, we were taken for many adventure activities like Commando bridge, Monkey crawl, Archery, Rifle shooting, Zip line, Rope- walk, etc. Then, in the evening, we had jungle cooking followed by the grand campfire in which we sang songs, performed skits that were value-based and learnt many different types of claps. The next day, began with a uniform inspection, patrol corner inspection, knotting session in which we learnt Lashing and Whipping. We also learnt tent pitching. The fun was the rain dance! We left the campsite by 4:00pm and reached school at 7:00pm. We all had a lot of fun and enjoyment at the camp. We thank Tr. Anna, our principal, for giving us this awesome opportunity. We also thank Brother Conrad, Sir Elias, Sir Titus and the two parents who accompanied us.

All is well that ends well!!
