A summer camp came to an end at Jusco School, South Park, on Friday. But the children were not sad.
With the summer vacation starting from tomorrow, they are gearing up for more such fun events to be organised by clubs, housing societies and other organisations.
Among the organisations eager to entertain the children are Aamra Shobai Club at Sonari, which will organise an eight-day camp at Sonari Community Development Centre from May 11 to May 18.
The club will train kids on basic magic tricks.
“We have unique activities lined up for the students. Learning magic is something that they are bound to love. Also, we have theatre workshop, pottery, origami and aerobics,” said Ayan Mukherjee of Aamra Shobai Club.
Even ladies of housing societies have started organising summer camps on their own so that their wards don’t go out in the blistering heat.
The women’s club of Ashiana Suncity, Baliguma, is one such group that has lined up a summer camp from May 12 to May 17.
“Apart from painting and music lessons, we will teach them etiquette and manners, yoga and public speaking,” said Rashmi Songh, organiser of the camp.
As for the summer camp organised by Jusco School, South Park, it went on from May 4 to May 9.
The closing ceremony was held on Friday, where Vandana Mathur, core committee member, SAFE, was present as the chief guest.
Not only students, parents also took part in events such as handwriting and computer workshops during the camp.
Altogether 54 students attended the camp, which started with morning yoga. Moral values and emotions were stimulated through drama and theatre workshop, while scientific concepts were made clearer with simple and engaging toy-making sessions.
Children learnt to appreciate beauty and creativity through art, craft and origami.
The other attractions were tattoo-making and webpage designing classes.
