We sincerely believe that curiosity is the source to wisdom and creativity, Kids are born curious but our feudal ways of education suppresses the curiosity and leads to “run of the mill” learning from ready made knowledge served to them.
We at the Nemophilist during our “Green Scout” camp focus around triggering the latent curiosity among st kids using Nature as medium of learning. In our Winter camps, Nature acts as the school as well as teacher in process of “Wisdom Creation”.
We believe that knowledge is different from wisdom. Knowledge is accumulation of facts and information, but with wisdom one acquires traits of discerning and judging of knowledge and its applicability for life and its surroundings. Wisdom can only be achieved once you are in action and doing the things. Knowledge is a more passive process.
All the activities in our camps are weaved around nature and its components and are extremely fun filed and joyful for Kids. Most of the tool used in winter camp of kids are made by Kids only during the camp. Right from eating on Leaf plates to making toys out of locally available stuff, kids are the creators and the consumer for those things.
Nature walks and Bird watching forms an integral part of our Winter camps as we believe that nature connects to you in best way, when you reach out to it. Kids are taken to different habitats to realize how the inhabitants of different habitats change as the habitats change.
Story telling and Drama sessions in the night are delightful for the kids and these stories are not premade, they get evolved during the experiences accumulated throughout the day gives Kids a perspective of experiences in entirety.
