The theme of the camp was 'Swachhat and Toy making in the Northeast' which was conducted by way of presentations, discussions and interactions to showcase the history, geography, tourism, cuisines and cultural heritage of all the various States of the Northeast, West Bengal and Sikkim.
The aim of online Ek Bharat Shresth Bharat Saptah was to foster the spirit of national integration and solidarity by overcoming cultural, religious, geographical, environmental and linguistic barriers which was evident in the enthusiastic participation of the cadets from these States. While the aspects of bonding, peer learning, team building and thrill of physically seeing the natural, cultural and geographical beauty could not be replaced through online camp, the cadets showed keen interest in knowing about the other States during the presentations and screening of videos. The cadets also actively participated in online dance and song competition, group discussion on 'Challenges of Swachhta' and quiz competition held on the final day.
