Dhruvatara started as a mission to develop nature consciousness in the youth of today. We believe that an intimate connect of the youth with Nature is a great way to nurture future Leadership. The self-leadership that will emanate from this endeavor possesses the potential to change the face of the planet.
Nature provides a rich platform for self developement in children, where they can inculcate the habit of influencing their thinking, feelings and behavior to achieve their objective. It imbibes within children, the ability to acknowledge, understand and be conscious of one’s own values, strengths, weaknesses and perspective. Young minds - when exposed to nature - become aware of the big picture. They develop more ecological Intelligence in themselves. Nature has a great power to heal both body and Mind. Today's children when healed through nature will develop into Free and Responsible adults.
Dhruvatara is an integrated out of school program conducted during vacation time, to develop a complete - nature mindfulness in youth from 9-18 years of age. Dhruvatara is about connecting Soil, Soul, Self and Society - a mission to enhance intimacy between nature and children.
Dhruvatara is a mission to enhance intimacy between nature and children. We believe children and nature in its unadulterated form need to be together for holistic development of every child. However, Dhruvatara is not a regular nature camp. Dhruvatara is a camp, where children connect with nature with a higher consciousness and create generative bonds that last a lifetime. This bonding will happen away from home, amidst forests, where children will learn the sound of silence, the dance of water and the being of Earth.
Our Vision is to develop our children to be ecologically conscious leaders of tomorrow. Leaders - having a plentiful mindset that comes from deeper connection with Nature; and having a deeper connection with self, leading to courage of self-leadership.
