International Student Camp

To acquaint the foreign friends with our historical, cultural and other places of interest, several camps are organized by the Council. This programme enables them to get a better picture of the country and of our way of life, which play a vital role in displaying India’s rich cultural heritage. Since the inception of the scholarship programmes, ICCR has been making use of the vacation period by arranging regular summer and winter camps for its scholarships holders as well as for scholars who fund their own studies in India. During the summer months, ICCR arranges tours to hill stations such as Kulu Manali, Ooty, Shimla etc. During the winter months sea-side resorts such as Goa and Trivandrum are preferred. ICCR ensures that besides visits to places of historical and tourist interest the scholars are also exposed to some aspects of India’s economy and commerce including visits to the Indian film Industry, visits to Public Sector undertakings such as Indian Oil Ltd, National Institute of Oceanography and visits to private enterprises. The duration of Summer / Winter camps are usually for 10 days and travel is generally by train or by bus. About 800 foreign students are benefited every year from these camps.

Winter Camps organized in December 2012 - January 2013 and Summer Camps in May - June 2013
