Very detailed information neha but it would be good if you delete some unnecessary information from the article.Your article starts with camps for 10-12th standards. Also the 'WILDLIFE CAMP' is for 14+ but in the rule it was mentioned that the camp should be only for kids not even teenagers.So, delete the information about camp related to teenagers and adults.
