Book Reading Session by Aswathy Karnaver at Castalia Summer Camp

Which child does not love listening to stories? Reading aloud or narrating stories to children is not just enjoyable and rewarding, it also stimulates their interest, imagination and language. It can also have a powerful and very positive influence on the lives of kids. Such events also open up the delightful world of books to non-readers and those who are struggling to read.

Recently Children’s conducted a story telling and reading workshop at the Castalia Summer Camp in Trivandrum. Aswathy Karnaver of Blue Sky Children’s Club shared the joy of books and reading with kids of ages 5 to 14 attending the summer camp on the 15th of April. She narrated a story about Vishu for the younger ones and read out an excerpt from the all-time-favorite ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl. Aswathy concluded by explaining how reading every day helps and why they should make regular visits to the library. The children enjoyed the wonderful interactive session that lasted for two hours.

My Summer World 2014 – Summer Camp@Goethe Zentrum

This is what Goethe Zentrum has to say about their summer camp to be held in Trivandrum in April, 2014

Each child carries around with her/him a whole world of creative ideas. Full of busy ideas, each of these worlds creates a uniqueness that is often astonishing.
Come Summer time, the Goethe-Zentrum, Trivandrum will offer avenues for your child to let these ideas bloom – with four weeks of workshops on various activities that highlight the child’s creativity and offer a vacation time of fun.
Working in two age groups of 5 to 9 years and 10 to 14 years, the children will discover various aspects of Germany and learn German while exploring their talents for puppet theatre, cartooning, creative writing, painting, making hand shadows, and a lot more…

Apart from all this activity, they can also enjoy children’s films in German.

These workshops will be conducted by Indian and German experts.

This is the sixth year that the Goethe-Zentrum, the German Language and Culture Centre situated at Palayam is conducting these workshops. Going by the enthusiastic response and the delighted feedback that we got in the past five years, the children of Trivandrum can look forward to a unique experience this year too.
We invite your child to come and discover together with us how creative her/his world can be!

Summer Camp@ Bodhi School

This is what Bodhi School has to say about their summer camp to be held in Trivandrum in April, 2014

As exams are coming to an end and the temperatures soaring high already, parents must be thinking about ways to engage their child for vacation. Make this summer productive, educative and fun filled for your child by introducing them to Bodhi summer camp. In its third consecutive year of summer camp, Bodhi has been exuberating with energy and life skill developmental activities for children of all ages. We have separate activities for various age groups. This will help us organise activities that are interesting and fun for them which also help in their overall development. As always spoken English and public speaking is a part of Bodhi way. They will be introduced to our good old traditional games like ‘eerkili kali’ etc. Dancing and learning magic will add more vigour and energy too! We give them an opportunity to learn from the best child friendly trainers in Trivandrum! We add variety and interesting techniques for older kids in their pre-teens that help coach them in various life skills like self-defence in Kung Fu, cooking skills, planting vegetables and flower beds etc. As we introduced them to jewellery making like simple studs and anklets and bracelets last year, this year it will be the trendy terracotta and quil art jewellery. We also plan to help them use these life skills to market their crafts and cooking skills during the Parents meet at the end of summer camp. The proceeds will go to the needy. So make the right decision by giving your child the right avenue to enjoy and do some cool activities this summer. Sit back and relax to watch them bloom this summer!
