Taking its commitment for children’s quality
education and growth, Smile Foundation is organizing a programme,
named ‘Smile Super Summer Camp’ in Delhi and National
Introducing Summer Camp
Summer is the time for children to take time off
from the regular chore of going to school and getting down to the
curriculum. So, the summer vacation is, in another way, an opportunity
to horn certain life skills while having fun.
What can it Make a Difference
Children in the age group of seven to teen years
are in the moulding stage. Right skills imparted now can help them
shape their life and future. Smile Super Summer Camp has come up
with ingredients to help children gain different life skills which
will not only help themselves but also their surroundings. Saving
water, sensitizing and helping fellow children in the immediate
neighbourhood, maintaining a healthy dietary habit since such an
early age, beginning to set clear goals in life, managing time,
keeping discipline in day-to-day life, even sensitizing elders would
be what the children are supposed to grasp through the innovative
design of the modules.
The Smile Super Summer Camp introduces innovative
ways of learning life skills and management skills among children
in the age group of 7–14 years belonging to various communities
