IAYP Expedition from Silver aspirants of Coorg Public School, Mysore - A report by Teena Machaiah (Award Leader) 

"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open." - Jawaharlal Nehru.
The silver aspirants of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme experienced the joys of community living in the camp at Bittangala on 15th and 16th September, 2012. A group of 40 members accompanied by 5 teachers - Mr. Satish, Mr. Vijay, Mrs. Teena Machaiah, Mrs. Vinutha Bopanna and Mrs. Krithika Devata enthusiastically participated in the camp activities organised in the pristine lap of nature.
The expedition included trekking in the forest confines, where the group spent two nights. Besides cooking their own food, there were exciting adventures activities such as Rock Rappeling, Zip Line Crossing, Jumer Hang, Monkey Crawling, X Target Reach, Rope Walk and team building activities.
This camp played a vital role in unearthing the skills of students and taught them valuable lessons about teamwork, self reliance, perseverance, sharing and the joys of simple living. We owe our debt of gratitude to Mr. Chengappa, Honorary Secretary and Col. Bharath, Vice President (Administration) of Coorg Institute of Adventure Sports for all their help and support for the success of this camp.
