Expeditions, Adventure & Service
Campfire Adventures works in partnership with Snow Leopard Adventures in India to professionally support youth groups in their discovery of the Indian Himalayas and in their personal development. Being a part of developing tomorrow's leaders is a privilege and a responsibility that we take very seriously. Our experienced team-leaders are regarded as the most professional in India.
We organise a variety of school trips for student groups. These are tailored to support subjects such as religion, history, geography and international relations. Most trips include elements of trekking, river-rafting, community projects and cultural tours of Delhi and Agra.
We have developed special programmes for the International Baccalaureate Creativity Action Service component.
Adventure and learning
Our trips combine enticing adventure with local insight. Physical activities are balanced with discovering the area's flora and fauna, studying the regional population and the environment, and absorbing local cultures. This offers students a comprehensive outdoor experience.
Safety is given utmost priority on our trips and we are proud of our standards. Our strict code of conduct, the state-of-the-art equipment and our qualified instructors ensure and maintain our safety record.
Our outdoor team is trained and certified in Wilderness First Aid and CPR and we have international instructors from NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School, USA) visiting us every year, giving our team exposure to best practices from the adventure fraternity abroad. We maintain a high outdoor specialist to student ratio.
We have high-quality equipment including imported self-bailing rafts, helmets, wet-suits and life-jackets.
Our commitment to environmental conservation includes the use of solar powered cookers and lanterns, eco-friendly toilets and sensible disposal of camp litter.
Accommodation is in comfortable safari tents. The tents are all equipped with beds, mattresses, quilts and bio-friendly products.
An ex-Taj chef is in charge of our F&B services and we give top priority to hygiene. The menu is a combination of Indian, Continental and Chinese food. Fruit and vegetables are obtained locally and our drinking water is boiled and filtered.
We have been based at Shivpuri, just north of Rishikesh, for 20 years. We are a part of the local community and work closely with the schools and community projects in the area.
