Summer & Winter Camps

Our focus is on adventure sports, leadership & personality development via experiential learning. We help your child find an extra edge & discover hidden strengths through sports & planned activities and gain self-confidence, social & leadership skills.

Our core thrust Is “Experiential Learning” as it stimulates original thinking and develops a wide range of thinking strategies and perpetual skills which are not called forth by books or lectures

Our endeavour is focused towards the nurturing and challenging of the young mind. To move them out of comfort zones, to help them think for themselves on their feet. To help them gain confidence though a sense of self achievement. To help in becoming resilient and independent young person. Our experienced staff introduce steps to see a progression in all of our campers. Our Campers can overcome emotional & psychological challenges and hurdles as there are no prejudged notions helping them to build up their self esteem and inward strength.

I think this was actually a very difficult trip for me. First time without my kids. But you gave them so much support they got through it &  loved it! I’m so glad we decided to send them &  now open to many more adventures for them. I am seeing a new Aanya. She is supremely confident & folding all her clothes. She made so many new friends & met new people & absolutely loved being independent. I am also very proud of Aadhya for conquering her fears. She never goes to anyone place for sleepovers(including my sisters place), so this was a big deal for her. And the best thing both the girls absolutely loved the trip. They have been talking non-stop about all their adventures. They told me how kind & supportive you were throughout the trip. So thank you from the bottom of my heart!🤗

“I have a conviction that a few weeks spent in a well-organized summer camp may be of more value
educationally than a whole year of formal school work.”

Rania had a superb time in the camp and was most reluctant to come back to us. She made new friends, memories and learnt so many new things. Thank you so much for taking such good care of her and please thank your team also from our side. Lots of love and hugs

Home far away from home was just a common phrase for me but it started having a meaning when i went to LES ELFES for the second time. it’s the place, the people, the campus and specially the staff. As soon as i stepped inside the campus all the previous memories came rushing back to me and gave me nostalgia. Being an intern, this time I learnt even more &  made even more memories for a lifetime. It taught me so many life skills which will help me throughout my life. meeting so many new people from all parts of the world gives you knowledge about other cultures and beliefs. i personally have developed such an amazing relationship with my councillors and other staff members that it actually feels like second home. The place is always full of excitement, love, happiness and positivity and that is why I love it & I want to keep going back there time and again.

I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude for the wonderful summer camp experience you provided to my daughter, Anandini.From the moment Anandini joined your summer camp, it was evident that she was in the care of a truly dedicated and passionate teacher. Your commitment to creating a nurturing and enriching environment for the children was commendable. Anandini couldn’t stop talking about the exciting activities, engaging lessons, and fun-filled moments she had during the Les elves camp. She wanted to extend it but when she learned it is not possible, she said she wants to go back again. Anandini came home brimming with enthusiasm, eager to share everything she had learned and experienced under your guidance.
Moreover, I want to express my gratitude for your patience and understanding. Anandini is a spirited child, and your calm demeanour and gentle approach ensured that she felt comfortable and valued throughout the camp. You fostered a sense of belonging and encouraged her to express herself freely, which has contributed to her personal growth and confidence.I am truly grateful for the care and attention you provided to Anandini.. We are forever grateful for the invaluable experiences Anandini gained under your tutelage. She made some lifetime memories.With deepest appreciation Aarti, Ambrish & Anandini.
