Our curriculum provides hands-on opportunities for campers to learn about India’s rich history & culture through games, projects & activities. Campers choose from enrichment activities like Bollywood dance, Indian games, cooking, debate, archery, drama & art. From learning Carrom to making chai & parathas, campers go home with new knowledge and new talents!
SPORTS & GAMES
Campers get introduced to sports that are both indiginous to India (like kabbadi and kho-kho) or are popular in today’s Indian culture (like hockey & cricket)
Camp includes tournaments where campers get to play against counselors & parent volunteers, and all camp game time where campers compete in mixed groups playing tug-of-war and other fun games
While campers are exposed to traditional Indian sports and games, they also have the opportunity to bond with their new friends playing sports like dodgeball, soccer & basketball.
Cultural activities introduce campers to customs and celebrations native to India. Campers experience special events like Holi, Raas-Garba, Bhangra Party and Bollywood Movie Night in addition to Yoga immersion and Aarti
Hosting camp at Camp Somerset allows us access to lakefront activities from swimming to kayaking, in addition to pool time. And summer camp would not be summer camp without quintessential activities like a bonfire, field day, talent show and carnival… our campers experience it all!
