If your child has never attended this camp, below is some information from 2019 camp:
We have offered this camp for the past 11 years which usually runs during the last 2 weeks of August. We offer full day option- 9am-4pm & 2 half day sessions- AM (9am-noon) & PM (1-4pm). Extended hours are offered for early drop off (starting at 8:00 am) and late pick up (until 5 pm) for an additional $50 per week per child.Activities: Yoga, dance, music, arts/crafts, cooking, chess, desi sports, STEM!!
We start our day with a half hour of yoga exercises which includes 2-3 min of guided meditation. Even though this sounds serious, kids really come to enjoy it by the end of the week.
A Bollywood dance is choreographed by the counselors and performed by the kids each Friday.
In music, the campers learn a fun Hindi song each week which is performed for parents on Friday evening.
In cooking, a vegetarian kid-friendly yet healthy item is cooked by the kids themselves!! They are supervised by a parent volunteer.
During desi sports, kids learn/play Indian games like kabaddi, kho-kho, cricket, badminton, gulli-danda, lagori (pitthu) etc.
Kids are made to think like a scientist during STEM when a fun yet challenging project is completed.
Arts & crafts is a fun hour for all kids with creative hands-on activities.
During each afternoon immediately after lunch, kids choose any one of the fun activities amongst chess, carom & reading for 30 minutes!
Parents showcase: Each Friday at 4pm when kids perform the dance/song they learn during the week.
Teen Volunteers: Rising high school freshman and older teens are invited to sign up to volunteer. The camp director and counselors assign them tasks to complete. They are a big help to us. They have fun being around kids and also make new friends. Volunteer hour certificate is awarded to teens if requested.
