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 text 908-447-2454 or email email@example.com to be added to the volunteer list.
Parents showcase: Friday at 4pm where kids perform the dance/song they learn during the week.
