The workshops were conducted by Everesters Tine Mena and Khorsing Terang, conservationist Jibi Pulu, assistant professor Dr Aba Pulu, social worker Ibi Mepo, singer Karnoi Mega, artists Khumba Linggi and Biplop Kachari, photographer Jaju Pulu, the Roing unit of the Brahmakumaris, and Eja Pulu from ‘Team Dibang’.

Bikers from the Running Wolves MC, the Arunachal Bullet Club, The Head Hunters, and the Buffaloes Trail MC also participated in the camp to encourage the young participants and to spread awareness on road safety and drug and alcohol addiction.

The camp also received support from various local businesses.
