Joy of Learning

Joy of learning is an experiential camp organized at the Deer Park Institute, Bir. It is designed for students of age groups ranging from 10 - 18 years. A fun filled and experiential camp, which brings together culture, nature, and the environment, to encourage young minds towards self awareness, creativity, compassion, and kindness.
Joy of Learning aims to sow the seeds of self-discovery in each child that leads to a life filled with joy, gratitude and perseverance. Through direct and intimate interaction with the uniquely inspiring Himalayan environment, it aims to kindle the flame of love, courage and inter-connectedness to the natural world that is innate in every child and inspires them to explore their creativity & compassionate understanding.

Joy of learning is based on the components of secular ethics that aim to inculcate values of patience, tolerance, forgiveness, humility, discernment, self control, a sense of responsibility, and love.
