Six Days Summer Camp for young girls and boys
Moreover, the 6-day summer camp seeks to give young boys and girls a well-rounded experience through educational, recreational, and adventure activities.
Furthermore, a total of 50 youngsters from distant villages in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tirap district have volunteered to join the camp, which will include numerous indoor and outdoor activities such as trekking, tent pitching, run for fun, yoga introduction, and various adventure-filled games and competitions.
During the six-day summer program, the students will also be taken on an educational/sightseeing tour to the Digboi Oil Museum, tea gardens, and Pangsau Pass.
The camp aims to offer children an opportunity to explore nature, make new friends, and build lifelong experiences.
Moreover, the program also aims to foster creative thinking, improve natural skills, and foster hobbies.
This is the first time a summer camp has been held in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tirap district, which has been ravaged by insurgency.
This summer program will help shape the children of Arunachal Pradesh’s Tirap district into responsible citizens who will bring peace and prosperity to the region.
