Looking for some fun and excitement during this summer holidays?? Come join us at Kalypso’s Adventure camp at Munnar. We promise you a fun filled adventure all the way. So, get out of that couch and away from your computers and video games. Rough it up a little as you go on a trek and explore the woods, feel the adrenaline rush as you go zip lining and river crossing. Can we make a raft with bamboos and vehicle tubes and actually cross a lake using the raft? At the Kalypso Adventure camp, you can do all this and much more!
At the Kalypso camp, safety is a guaranteed factor. Through our experience over the last 14 years in leading groups for expeditions and conducting youth camps, Kalypso has the capability to prevent hazards and handle situations. We are recognized internationally for our safety standards.
It is not just a summer camp, it is a quest of discovery and you’re the explorer. Make new friends through our fun and interactive games. Spend the night in a tent at the Munnar Hill Station, sing songs sitting around the campfire and enjoy the scrumptious meals. Bring out the adventurer in you and sign up now for Kalypso’s Adventure Camp.
Kalypso is run by three ex-Naval officers who have diverse qualifications and experience. Commander Samuel, the Managing Director, is a Naval pilot with over 4000 hours of flying experience and a qualified Interviewing Officer of the Defence Services Selection Board. Commander Thomas Zacharias, Executive Director, is an Electrical Engineer, a wild life enthusiast and a nature lover who has enormous experience in the wilderness. Commander Madhusoodanan, Director-Training, is a Deep sea diver (qualified from US Navy) and has undergone a ‘Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation’ training capsule conducted by the American Heart Association and the ‘Master Medicare’ course (essential first aid for ships without doctors) approved by Director General Shipping. The experience and knowledge of all the three officers are leveraged to the maximum in establishing and maintaining safety guidelines and practices.
Our safety procedures are based on three major aspects:
(a) The safety procedures laid down by reputed international organizations
(b) Knowledge and Experience of the ‘Kalypso Team’
(c) Knowledge of local population
Since there is no agency in India who is authorized to certify companies involved in such activities, we follow the internationally laid down procedures modified to local requirements. The risk assessment and various other procedures are carried out in accordance with established international practices such as BS 8848, the British Standard for adventurous activities. We conduct activities for internationally reputed organizations like ‘Raleigh International’ (www.raleighinternational.org) and ‘World Challenge’ (www.world-challenge.co.uk).
All activities undergo thorough risk assessment at the conceptual, planning and implementation stages. Periodic reviews of processes are carried out based on experiences and feedbacks.
Casualty Evacuation is an aspect integrated into every activity we conduct. Suitable vehicles are kept stand by and location of nearest hospitals are identified.
First Aid Bag is a part and parcel of the equipment and is available at the camp as well as at the location of the activity. When the activity necessitates or when the client feels the requirement, we even position a qualified doctor.
For our camp at Suryanelli, the Harrisons Malayalam Hospital is at 15 minutes drive. For other locations, we ascertain the information of nearest hospitals.
Most of the equipment we utilize is from reputed international and Indian suppliers. Our kayaks, cycles and rafts have been procured from international suppliers. Life jackets have been procured from international and Indian firms of repute.
Water activities are conducted under the supervision of qualified personnel with quality safety equipment. Personnel are allowed to participate only with life jackets. Kayak or Boat is kept standby as an additional precaution.
