Chanakya Mandal believes in “learning by doing". We seek to move beyond mere book education. Outdoor Management Program(OMP) is a step in this direction. This a 2 day camp conducted at a campsite outside Pune. Students are taught various management skill, teamwork, communication etc. through 2 days of fun filled games followed by de-briefings(to discuss what we learnt from the games).
This Outdoor Management Program(OMP) is a part of our Foundation and Preparatory Courses. This is one of the high points of our entire year and students leave with found memories and also ample knowledge.
This Outdoor Management Program(OMP) is conducted every year by our very own Sagar Palkar. Sagar himself is an excellent example of how a student of Chanakya became successful in his life without joining the Civil Services. Sagar Palkar is a mountaineering expert. He has successfully lead an expedition to conquer the peak of Mount Everest.
