The CCRT, under this programme also organises ‘Summer Camps’ for children (aged between 10 to 15 years). The activities are carefully chosen to bring heart and heed, hand and mind into unison. Working with experts and artists in a rare and wonderful experience that most children rarely have these days. The youthful hands in its jumpy road to emotional development needs time to contemplate and think, in solitude and in a team, in order to femiliarize itself with the magical working of the mind. It is this creative exploration that is the quality of all the experiences while doing the activities, be it the inward journey or that which is outward and beyond.

The duration of the ‘Summer Camp’ is 10-13 days with the timing from 9.15 am. to 1.00 pm. The announcement is advertised in local newspapers.
