Camps@Campus is a program designed as a unique combination of hands-on learning and teaching, along with a first-hand experience of how an NGO works at the grassroots level.
The customizable, residential program is suitable for students of schools and colleges from all over India to become exposed to the Agastya Way!
Agastya’s core focus is to increase a child’s appreciation for community, science and the environment through traditional camp activities. The proceeds from these Camps will support Agastya’s work in the rural sector.
