Trekking in Lush Green Nature
In taking them out of their protective home environment, kids learn to fend for themselves and become responsible and independent.
In experiencing success and enjoying when trying new activities, kids build an openness and willingness to experiment and take risks.
In realising that they can only complete tasks by working together, kids learn empathy and collaboration. In figuring out where the next step should be placed so they don't fall on a trek or while climbing a rock, kids learn judgement and decision making.
In living with basics and scarce resources, kids learn the difference between their needs and their wants.
In living with friends in a social melting pot, kids learn to trust and accept people for who they are.
The need for Nature is in our DNA because we have evolved from the woods. A growing body of scientific studies is linking time spent in Nature to physical, mental and emotional well-being. Vitamin "N" from nature boosts our immunity, attention and creativity while reducing stress and depression!
