Camp Informaion for Parents:

Belonging to a 5000year old culture that still makes the world go gaga is not an ordinary accident of life. Our children are born to this tradition called Indianity because of a reason. This country has everything it takes to make an ordinary person a Hero. An ever-growing culture, an extraordinarily rich tradition, a wealth of wisdom, abundance of resources, complete freedom and ample opportunities. Make your budding teens tap the treasure they have within them. Give them a Cause to live for. Pave their path to greatness.


Come on, Play the Game of Life

Come on, play the Game of Life,
Have fun with the joys that come with Life.
Follow the rules and play the Game,

He's sure to give you the strength of a wall!

From Mumbai by Car: Take the Mumbai-Pune Expressway (toll road) and take the exit for Lonavala/Karla, which leads to the old Mumbai-Pune Highway. Go 15 km on the old Mumbai-Pune Highway toward Kamshet.

Follow this road for 15 km. to the village of Kolwan. A short distance after crossing Kolwan, you will see Chinmaya Vibhooti on your left. There are Chinmaya Vibhooti road signs from Kamshet to Kolwan.

From Mumbai by Bus: There is a bus (Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation) that goes daily from Mumbai to Kolwan. This is a public bus, not a private or luxury bus. It starts from Parel and goes to Paud (Kolwan is on the way). The bus leaves Parel at 7:30 a.m. and reaches Kolwan at about 11:30 a.m. Purchase your ticket to 'Sathesai Village,' the stop that comes after Kolwan and you can alight right at Chinmaya Vibhooti's gates.

The bus can also be boarded from these stops:

Dadar (opposite the Asiad Bus Stand) at 7:35 a.m.
