2nd Adventure camp for Children with Intellectual disabilities and Families

This camp is specially organized for families of children with intellectual disabilities, which includes the special child accompanied with parents, caretakers, siblings, grandparents (!!), or any other adults/children who would like to join in the experience !!

Last year, in April, some families of children with intellectual disabilities spent 1 night at the NALS campus in Colacumby, Nilgiris. It was a wonderful experience and we all resolved to return back again this year, for 2 night stay. To view a detailed review of our experience last year visit

NALS, the organizers, have confirmed the dates for this year too. This year we will be spending 2 nights on the campus which gives us all 24 hours more to bond, and experience a lot more of the outdoors. Furthermore we will all be together as one extended family.
During our stay at the campsite, NALS is committed to give us a good time by exposing us to rope activities, walking alongside a stream, splashing around in a safe water-body and trekking around the campus.
