"Camp discovery gave our mangers a new perspective. We realized it was not only beautiful but also powerful. The camp was located in a remote area near Kotagiri. Jeeps were arranged to reach the camp. It is a 2-day program and right from the moment you land, the activities start. We started with tent pitching which was something new for all us. The team strategized and bonded well during the first activity itself. The rest of the activities are a little bit of a surprise. You have to experience them first hand. The camp made us a discover our own self. The camp discovery team (lead by kannan) with their deep expertise gave us an experience of a lifetime. Kannan’s team dedication, creativity and an uncanny ability to connect with the audience was phenomenal. Each activity was made with great care and fantastic support was provided to finish those activities. They ensured all participants were part of each and every activity. They maintained high standards and brought in a class to the whole event. There were so many surprise elements which were not anticipated by our team. They kept it simple yet significant. Sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary simply by doing them with the right people. Camp discovery (kannan’s team) is one such place. Special mention to sujoy for taking good care of us."

"The group learning and team bonding activities won the hearts and minds of the groups. The ambience and atmosphere was impressive. The stay in tents added to the magnificence and it was a first for many and will remain permanently etched in their memory. The hospitality and amenities left nothing to be desired. The activities test the mental and emotional fibre of the participants and they came away with anew realization of their strengths and weaknesses and it now shows in their approach to work. The safety aspects, environment and the jungle trail were more breathtaking than they expected. I most strongly recommended this camp to all those who wish to bring a positive change in mindset and a sense of bonhomie amongst their teams."

"Our sales & marketing Team had a fun filled out-bound training at your camp discovery kotagiri. We would not have got a better rustic environment then camp discovery, kotagiri for our laid out program. We had experienced greater hospitality from all your staff members' right from the cook, facilities in –charge, transport coordinator and all others in your campus. The best part was everyone in our team enjoyed your food. We never expected the kind of dishes your cook offered in that location and every time on–time.Your support staff made our staff members more comfortable in doing the activities. When there were tougher activities they motivated and induced confidence in our staff members to complete the activities. Actually every one of our staff members completed all the tasks and activities."
