Activities: yoga, dance, music, arts/crafts, cooking, chess, desi sports, STEM
We start our day with a half hour kids yoga exercises which may include 2-3 min of guided meditation. Even though this sounds serious, kids really come to enjoy it by the end of the week.
In dance, a Bollywood dance is choreographed and is performed by the kids for their parents on Fridays.
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 supervised by a parent volunteer.
During desi sports, kids learn/play Indian games like kabaddi, kho-kho, cricket, badminton, dodge ball etc.
Kids are made to think like a scientist during STEM when a fun yet challenging project is given to the campers. They enjoy this fun activity.
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!
The offering of some of the above activities is contingent upon volunteer availability. Please email email@example.com or indicate during registration if you would like to volunteer for any of the activities listed above. We are specifically looking for instructors for singing (flexible) and desi sports hour (3-4pm).
Parents showcase: Friday each week at 4pm when campers perform the dance/song they learn during the week.
Counselors: We hire 4 counselors per week from our community. To be eligible, the applicant must be a freshman in college or older. Skills such as Bollywood dance, singing, STEM or familiarity with Desi Sports is preferred. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
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 have fun being around kids and are a big help to us. Volunteer hour certificates are awarded to teens. Teens can sign up to volunteer starting May 1st, 2023 by using this form. A separate email will be sent out to the community for teen sign-up.
Allergy Concerns: Sanskriti camp is a nut free camp. If you have specific allergy concern, make sure to state in the medical form. You can also email us.
Lunch/Snacks: Please send one healthy morning snack. The campers help cook their afternoon snack during the cooking session. Lunch is included in the camp fees. A nutritious, freshly prepared vegetarian meal of your choice (from a menu) is delivered each day by Simply Gourmet. Click here for more information. Parents will be notified closer to the camp date to make lunch selection. Every Friday is Pizza day!!! If your child does not eat pizza, please send lunch on Friday.
We want to give individual attention to our campers, therefore we accept limited number of kids each year. Campers are divided into 2 or 3 age appropriate groups for most of the activities. The camp is managed by a professional camp director with several years experience along with three or more camp counselors. A parent &/or a Sanskriti volunteer is also present most of the day.
