Van Shivir is a special and distinguished feature of Bal Mandir and Bhuvnesh Bal Vidyalaya. Students from class VI to X participate in the Camp. It is like the adventure Camps.

Both the schools have adopted it as a compulsory and permanent exercise and it is one of its kind. No other school in Rajasthan conducts it on such a large scale. 29 Camps have been successfully conducted till now by God's Grace.

The site of the Camp is selected after much inspection and awareness keeping in view the environment, drinking water facility, light arrangements, hygiene and security.

Temporary light and water arrangements are also made in case of need. Tents are lifted. The teachers, administrative and ministerial staff have to stay for 5 days in the Camp without any exemption. Nearly 1200 students of both the schools participate in groups in the Camp. Each group has to attend the camp for two days and two nights. The students and teachers mostly stay in the tents.

Activities in a Camp :

1) Community Services :

a)   Works related to social and National awareness like vaccinations, literacy programme, Health and Hygiene etc.
b)   Tree plantation in the Camp area and nearby villages.

d)   Flowers decoration, articles made of clay etc.

3) National Integration Programme:

4) Discipline, Entertainment & Cultural Activities :

a)   Day's routine is followed strictly according to the schedule.
b)   In the morning P.T. and exercise and cross country walk are compulsory.

Distinguished personalities of Kota and Rajasthan visit the camp during these five days. In the evening Camp fire is followed by a Prize distribution which is always by a distinguished guest.

Students are segregated into groups of 10 with 2 group leaders and teachers as in charge. A group completes 5 activities from the above. Students live in a totally different environment. A child becomes busy from morning 5.30 AM to 10.30 PM. He/She gets exhausted till the time he/she retires to bed. The students come closer to one another and are knit with dearer ties with the feeling of oneness, helping one another. Sacrifice reigns supreme. Lady teachers act as loving mothers and male teachers as guides.


A special practice adopted by the school as its distinctive feature. The students sit in groups facing the setting Sun. Complete silence for 5 minutes is observed by the students. The students are asked to free themselves mentally of all strains and tensions and then meditate and introspect themselves.

The students love and enjoy this practice, sitting in an open field, viewing the Red ball of fire slowly dwindling down in the horizons. Maun Bela is compulsory everyday for hostellers and day scholars observe it during the Van Shivir.
