Jamshedpur: It is the season of summer camps as most schools in the city are about to close for vacation. Schools, independent groups and organisations are holding camps for children under every conceivable category.

Children from five to 18 years can head to J R D Tata Sports Complex to pick up the basics of Archery, Athletic, Badminton, Boxing, Basketball, Chess, Cricket, Football, Golf, Handball, Karate, Kabaddi, Roller Skates / Roll Ball, Swimming, Table Tennis, Tennis and Volleyball.

With an aim to make students best utilise their summer holidays and help them cultivate some skills, a number of city-based educational and cultural bodies are organising summer camps. Summer camps are fast gaining popularity in the urban and semi-urban areas in the district. With the schools closed for vacation the summer camps are attracting children by the dozens.

“Summer is the best 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,” said one of the city-based summer camps organisers.

The summer camps are mostly being conducted by cultural associations, sports associations and dance schools among others in the. Training in sports and games, swimming, painting and other crafts, different forms of classical and modern dances and music are being taught in the summer camps.

From schools, colleges to educational institutes are all engaged hosting number of camps to woo children.“Summer is the best time for children to take time off from the regular chore of going to school and getting down to the curriculum. Summer camps also provide welcome relief to working parents as they keep their child occupied for a part of the day,” said Priyanka Agrawal, one of the city-based summer camps organisers
