Summer Camp
This year the summer camp had an international flavour with the theme ‘We are children of the World’ as we have been involved in a British Council initiative which helps in nurturing global citizenship in young people.. The participants explored stories, songs, activities and menu from different parts of the world. Every day a story from a different country was narrated using a story board. Different internationally famous people like Micheal Jackson and his famous ‘ Moon Walk’,  Mr. David Copperfield and his famous magic were  introduced. An activity ‘Taste on my Plate’ saw the Mongrace Master Chefs making and tasting salads from Italy, Thailand and India. ‘Make and eat Yummy Salads and Stay Healthy’  was the message behind this activity. Yoga, Music and Movement, Games, Art and a variety of interesting Craft activities like pot painting, mask making, wall hanging, canvas painting, puppet making, jute mat printing and making of pencil holder using ice cream sticks kept the children busy.

Along with these fun activities they were also encouraged to share and spread some globally relevant environmental messages like ‘Plant more Trees’ during the germination activity and ‘Save every drop of Water’ during the water fun activity. They learnt a variety of songs like the summer song, yummy watermelon song and the journey of a seed song along with the popular Bengali song ‘Chutti Chutti’. It was a delight to see the excitement on their little faces as every day they got an opportunity to indulge in role play and become magicians, story tellers, puppeteers, performing artists and environmentalists!
