Camp Cardamom is located in the pristine Marayoor Valley on the eastern slope of the Western Ghats. It is near the Chinnar and Pambar Rivers, two of only four Kerala rivers that flow eastward. Owing to its location in a rain shadow, it receives a modest 200 to 300 mm of precipitation in June and July. Temperatures are mild, with an average low of 17ºC to high of 25º C (63ºF to 77ºF). These are the perfect conditions for outdoor camp activities.
WHY CAMP CARDAMOM?
In our increasingly cosmopolitan, interlinked, and globalized world, we believe that young people need time to reconnect with their roots, both cultural and environmental. This means less watching and more doing. It means getting away from screens and onto the dance floor. It means taking a walk in the woods, eating a guava off the tree, or swimming in a waterfall. It means understanding where you come from by truly experiencing it.
Camp Cardamom resides on a 112-acre organic farm and Ayurvedic center. Our three-floor, 15,000-square-foot wing contains 10 rooms with private bathrooms and three large classrooms—all exclusively used by us. Our dining area overlooks an orchid-filled garden. Outdoor facilities include a stream-fed swimming pond, a football (soccer) field, a treehouse, and a roof terrace with amazing mountain views where yoga and kalari classes take place.
