All while having fun, making friends, participating in interactive arts and crafts, and getting plenty of outdoor time in the summer sunshine!

How We Do It

Learning in Action

We introduce kids the Tamil culture, arts and history. Your kids will be taught to read/write/speak and understand Tamil letters and some everyday words. We focus on character building based on the Tamil literature book Thirukkural. We hope your kid will learn at least one Thirukkural & Thevaram by the end of the camp. Our Varmakalai/Silambam asaan (master) will be teaching your kids the traditional Tamil martial arts to build a lifestyle of good health. Kids will be taught to focus on every day meditation & yoga to improve their breathing, focus, discipline, appreciation and affirmation. Silambam (long stick/staff) will be taught to focus on hand-eye co-ordination, strength and stamina building. Adi Murai/Kutthu Varisai will be introductory to self defence (blocking & punching with no/minimal physical contact) Character & team building activities will include variety of fun & entertaining games, sports and excercises.
