“Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime? 

Join us at WildFlower – a 7-day residential camp designed just for you! 

Through these 7 days explore your interests and passions through live projects like film-making, music, organic farming, cooking, art and crafts, exploring biodiversity, trekking, poetry, journaling, cycling, and much more. You’ll even have the chance to interact with the local community through community service projects. Spend most of your time in the picturesque rural village of Bir, located in the foothills of Dhauladhar Ranges of Himachal Pradesh, with Vimukt Shiksha & Seeds and Deeds’ ecosystem of partners and activities. 

And the best part? No exams, textbooks, competition, or boring classrooms, an opportunity for you to explore un-schoolers’ way of living!

This program is all about co-creation and emergent learning, with experienced mentors and facilitators to guide you on your journey. So pack your bags, grab your friends/cousins, and join us for the most fun and exciting time of your life! 

We begin on Tuesday, June 6th, 2023, 11:00 am and close on Monday, June 12th, 2023, 4:30 pm.
The camp will be mainly facilitated in Hindi/English.

We believe that everyone has something to offer and that we all have the ability to teach and learn from one another. That’s why our camp is organized in the spirit of gift culture! We don’t believe in fixed prices – instead, we invite you to contribute what feels right from your heart. Our suggested contribution is a sliding scale of ₹25,000 – ₹35,000 per person, which includes food, accommodation, and facilitation during the program. And if you’re feeling generous, we’d be so grateful if you could donate more to help sponsor others’ participation. We want to make sure that lack of money doesn’t stop anyone from attending or participating fully in our program. So please don’t hesitate to contact us if finances are a concern – we’re here to help! 

Let’s come together to create something truly special and unforgettable.
