They started with Zip line activity, where all the cadets enjoyed. Next was High level rope activities followed by sky cycling. All these activities were very adventurous and challenging to the cadets. By the time we finished all the activities it was lunch time, few cadets rested whereas the others enjoyed indoor activities like Table Tennis, Chess, Carom Board, Snooker, Foos Ball. After a while cadets jumped into the swimming pool to cool down and enjoy the rest of the day. They even enjoyed Rain Dancing Activity. During this period, few cadet’s birthday was celebrated by cutting the cake. Then the cadets changed and were provided with tea and snacks. The cadets assembled for a group picture and head count was taken.
