Visakhapatnam: Several schools, NGOs and private organisations are arranging summer camps in the city during this vacation period. However, the parents and children are not satisfied with the facilities offered in some of the camps.

As most of the nuclear families do not consider sending their children to their grandparents’ home in holidays, summer camp is the only option left for the new generation. Working parents are ready to spend huge money so that their kids take part in a summer camp.

 

They want the children to excel in various disciplines including yoga, athletics, sports and creative activities such as singing and dancing during the two-month summer break. School-going kids are also willing to attend these summer camps as they get to make and meet new friends.

Apart from the schools, Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd (Vizag Steel Plant) has also organised a summer coaching camp in Vizag from the first week of May. Its sports department has arranged 37 coaches, imparting coaching in 13 disciplines for two sessions daily.

 

Visakhapatnam Metropolitan Region Development Authority started a summer camp for children in the city to offer classes in classical music, Kuchipudi, western and folk dance, personality development, yoga and aerobics, acting, chess, skating and karate.

Classes are being held at VMDRDA’s Children’s Arena in the month of May. This Sunday, children participating in this camp were allowed to visit freely all its projects such as TU-142 Museum, Kursura Museum, Central Park and Kailasagiri Project along with their parents.

VMRDA commissioner P. Basanth Kumar said that they are further arranging personality development classes on Monday and screening a message-oriented film ‘Bache Kache Sache’ free of cost on Tuesday at VMDRDA Children’s Arena.

 

The three-day Azerbaijan Film Festival conducted by Vizag Film Society concluded on Saturday.

Three Azerbaijani feature films – Pomegranate Orchard, Buta and Down The River were screened freely with English sub-titles on the three days respectively.

Bala Vikas Foundation, an NGO working for the welfare of children, will organise a three-day free summer camp in ‘folk songs’ from May 27 at Dr Ambedkar Bhavan under the guidance of eminent folk singer Vangapandu Prasada Rao.
