The following day the students went for a Village Walk and traversed through the minimalistic lifestyle of the village. They explored the various landforms around the village like the swamps and a river. This day was filled with thrilling activities like rock climbing, rappelling and rope walking. The students enjoyed a few hours of leisure time at the pool. Post lunch the cubs were engaged in the Tug of War with their various groups which was then followed by the Prize Distribution Ceremony.
