Summer Camp

Payir Team at Thenur decided to conduct a month long free summer camp for the kids studying in 6th, 7th and 8th. There was quite a few takers for the camp and around 40-45 students registered for the camp. The camp would have started on 1st May, but, we had a pre-camp day on 25th and 26th.

Suresh and I did a quick visit last weekend to Thenur and found that the team was busy preparing for the summer camp. Oh! - In case you had forgotten, they had also been working on the certificates and prize distribution for Everest Competitions during the weekend. So, it was a pretty hectic weekend for them. We invited the kids on Saturday (25th April) around 4 pm and we had a great time with introduction and divided the students into 4 teams. Each team would come during a particular time during the day. The kids decided names for their respective teams and came up with interesting names(Lotus, Payum Puli, Seerum Siruthai etc). On 26th, all the four teams came in during their respective time slots and each time slot was devoted for one particular activity. The first time slot was devoted to drama and puppetry. The second slot was devoted to dancing and singing and few other literary activities. The 3rd session was related basic introduction to computers with fun as the main item in the agenda. The last session was devoted to games.

Here are some snaps taken on 25th and 26th April. The summer camp should have started in full earnest from yesterday. Let me find out more from Senthil and team and let you how things are going on out there.
