NSS unit organized a nature camp to chinnar on 23rd and 24th of June in which 32 members participated (21 NSS volunteers and 11program officers). The camp was conducted under the guidance of Dr.S.Franklin John (NSS program coordinator). Our troop reached chinnar at around 9.00 am on 23rd June. And there we had a real trekking experience for two days. We were divided into 2 groups and then were taken for trekking. On the first day of nature camp, the first batch was taken for the risky adventure along the river side, the second batch was taken for trekking in dense mountain range Two of the forest guards accompanied each group, were they explained us the animals residing in that dense forest, and their activity for the day. We had visit to the watch tower, were we could see the entire scenario of the forest. (Attending seminar about ecosystem) Later by evening at around 6.30 pm on 23rd June, we had a good interactive seminar delivered by the forest officer. We were taught of the food chain, and how different species of the forest are linked together.
It was really a new experience as there was no power supply in the place where we stayed. We were given chance to experience a real nature of living. Next day we took bath in a river and started trekking in dense mountain range and risky adventure in batches vice versa. The students were taken trekking for more than 8 kms; there was chance for seeing animals which encouraged the students to take part actively. Then we returned from chinnar at 6.00 Pm in the evening .
