Summer Camps Galore in Bangalore « Mummy Knows Best - The hands-on mum's guide to cool kids' stuff

Its that time of the year when you are torn between screaming “Yay! It’s the holidays” and “Oh no! It’s the holidays”. Let’s go for the former we say, and check out what fun stuff you can get your kids doing so they are not getting YOU climbing up the wall! There seem to be so many summer camps happening in every nook and corner of Bangalore so we did the research and picked a few from every corner that happen to be our favourites and which we wouldn’t mind going to ourselves – if our kids would only let us.

Nisha’s picks from North and South Bangalore, Whitefield and Sarjapur

If there was just one reason for which I would uproot myself from the northern environs and move to South Bangalore, it would be – Rangashankara.

Duniya Sabki: A theatre workshop by Rafiki

Rafiki, a Bangalore based theatre group, has worked with an increasing focus on theatre for children over the last 14 years.

Employing theatre games, exercises and their own experience of working with children – the workshop will aim to share and learn from personal experiences. The eight days will culminate into a short performance by the participants involving personal narratives along with the one written by Hashmi.

Tharangini, one of our favourite spaces in Sadashivnagar, in partnership with Happyness, brings a slew of summer workshops for the 4-7 group and the 8 -12 year olds.

Some of the activities for the younger group are “Dirt Detectives”, “Bones, Bones, Bones”, “Sound Garden”, “Texture Hunt” and more. The older batch will be investigating “Animal Communication”, “Shadow Study”, “Wind Force”, “Green Thumb” and more.

Swathi’s picks from Koramangala, Indiranagar and Richmond town:

Here are a few I picked from my side of town, and I will update this site if I find anymore interesting ones. So, lets start with my favorite – dance and movement!

The Studio for Movement Arts & Therapies (SMArT) has 3 creative dance and movement workshops for children of different age groups.

*Dance Stories is for 3-4 year olds is a workshop, which draws inspiration from “Eurythmy” and focuses on holistic development of the child.

* “Once Upon a Time” for 5 to 7 year olds is a creative movement and craft workshop and ends with a performance based on the origin of dance from the Natyashastra. The children also get an opportunity to contribute to the overall performance not just as dancers but also by creating their own props and parts of costumes.

* “The Prince & His Rose” Based on Antoine Saint Exupury’s ‘The Little Prince” this performance oriented workshop for 8-16 year olds focuses on contemporary dance techniques, martial arts, movement improvisations and text.

  2. Preethi says:

    Hi Nisha,

    Any more summer camps in the North side for a 10 year old boy.

  3. Nisha says:

    Hi Preethi

    North Bangalore doesn’t seem to have too many camps – are you looking for any type specifically?
    I just heard of an interesting sounding summer camp on aeromodelling – if your son is into that. Participants make and take home a different model of wooden planes and gliders, and they have audio-visual and interactive sessions and experiments on flight. Its going to be held at Sobha Suburbia in Jakkur from around April 18 or so for five days, 3 hour sessions in the mornings. Check out http://www.hobbymaster.in/summ.....camps.html for more details on this – you can register online or contact them for more details.
    Are you also particular about day camps? There are some week long nature camps and outdoor camps that we could recommend as well…
