It is time to pack the bags and head to the jungles or a camping site. Pitching a tent under a starry sky can be fun especially when there is a story-telling session, good food and lots of adventure activity. These adventure camp organizers have them all.
For some team building activities combined with adventure based competitions this summer join the programmes designed by Bridgehead
. Options include high rope walk on trees and boulders, raft building, rappelling, GPS based navigation running, rock to rock and peak to peak walk under an expert team of ex-Army officers and thorough professionals in their area and high safety norms. Most of the activities will be conducted in Shamirpet, Vikarabad and other areas around Hyderabad. Bridgehead offers experiential learning, team building, leadership and behavioral skill development and more for groups of 10-200 people.

Interested in rock climbing, scuba diving, sea sailing, trekking, scaling hillocks, camping and anything that spells adventure? Meet the Great Hyderabad Adventure Club
or the GHAC team. They come up with regular meet ups and you will find them climbing Moula Ali Hills or Bhongir Fort on Sunday mornings or doing a trail near Durgam Cheruvu. Most of these are day trips but those like the one to Dandeli for white water rafting also include camping. It is for folks who can forego the comforts of a resort for a blissful evening by the campfire and snoozing under the stars. Most of the batches are restricted to a limited number and you have to book your place beforehand. The pricing is a little steep for their activities but it’s a whole lot of fun with a mix of people across ages and professions coming together for these activities. Each of the adventure activity group has a couple of experts who can guide you and take care of safety. Batches include Adults (18 - 60 years), Junior II (13-17 years) who will need parent or guardian's written consent for participation and Junior I (7-12 years) who can only participate along with a parent or a guardian.
So make the most of this summer!
