National Youth Camp
New Delhi YMCA Campsite Sattal hosted a National Youth Camp from October 25-30, 2010 under the aegis of National Council of YMCAS. Nearly 200 participants from all over India took part and Ms. Aruna Bharti, PCS, City Circle Officer inaugurated it. Besides adventure activities like Rock Climbing, Rappelling, River Crossing and Kayaking, awareness creating sessions were held on 'First Aid' and 'Environmental Degradation'.

          The Camp endeavors to provide youth an opportunity for friendship (healthy interaction), cultural pursuit (enhancing their capacity for aesthetic appreciation) and social action (channelize their energies and talent in constructive pursuits) to create a more equitable and egalitarian society. As the most colorful, exciting and challenging period in an individual’s life is his or her youth; the Camp will help them to exhibit and express their latent skills and talents, innovativeness, excitement and exuberance for life. Youth is a period where they can perform the best, learn the most, adapt in the easiest way. It is a period of maximum energy and at the same time, it is a period of maximum vulnerability. The program will make an effort to engrain in the youth a feeling of self awareness and respect, which would fill them with a sense of pride and identity besides providing an impetus to the young to pursue and grow in their potentialities and capabilities.
