COULD LEARNING BE ANYMORE FUN THAN AT A SUMMER CAMP
Summer camp is important because it offers a structured opportunity for children to grow. Kids come from home to school for extra curriculars, with each activity contributing to their development. It is another unique venue for growth, allowing kids to become independent and self-confident, while socializing and making friends, and even learning new skills. Presidians are having a wonderful time in the Summer Camp. They are enjoying fun filled activities and most importantly, they are learning things which are useful in everyday life. A host of activities have been planned like Personality development classes, Spoken English classes, Theatre, Music, Dance and Games like Swimming, Skating, Taekwondo, Cricket, Badminton, Basketball, Football etc. to keep children engaged during the summer vacations and to hone their skills.
