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

Continuing our theme on summer camps, our Mumbai mums pick and choose their favourites in various areas. Do write in if you have any specific queries or add your picks to the comments section.

The summer is round the corner and so are children’s vacations. Most of us are busy planning our holidays and looking for exciting things to keep our little ones happily engaged! Here is some useful information about the summer camp activities organised by a couple of children’s clubs in the neighbourhood.

Surbhi’s picks from Matunga, Worli

THE KOALA CLUB( 109 Tej Gaurav building, Telang road, Matunga, Mumbai 400014)

The Koala Club is a cheerful little children’s club and preschool tucked away in one of the quiet lanes of Matunga. It was started by Krupali Mongia and Toral Bhanushali in 2008. They have both completed their Early Child Care course from Sophia College and hold a degree in child psychology. They have been conducting creative workshops and summer camps at various locations across Mumbai.

With a combination of general knowledge, art/craft, music and dance, the Koala Club(Matunga) promises to make this summer fun and educative for your child . They have three week long camps for various age groups, ranging from 2 to 9 year olds called Chirpy Champs and Jolly Juniors.

At Chirpy Champs, babies can have fun with music and dance, puppet shows and freehand wall painting. Jolly Juniors teaches kids simple yoga and breathing techniques as well as pottery, craft and puppet-making.

Each day will begin with 30 minutes of physical exercise in the form of yoga, dance and gymnastics.

This year their theme is ‘The Five Senses’ and their activities will revolve around it. They are also promising some science experiments for the young geniuses!

TODDLER ACTIVITY CENTRE (TAC, Atur House, 3rd Floor, 87 Dr Annie Besant Road, Worli, Mumbai – 400 018)

Toddlers’ Activity Centre is a one-stop activity and learning centre. They provide children the opportunity to grow their senses and skills in a world packed with stimulating sights, sounds and people.

TAC’s motto is “education through play”. Their multi-faceted programs are designed to combine activities, games and experiences to augment a child’s social, cognitive, physical and language development and encourage them to be an initiator, explorer and self-learner.

They have designed a summer camp that gives your child the chance to stay on their developmental toes and stay connected to friends.

Each camp offers interactive activities which will help develop their imagination. The instructors fill each two / three-hour camp day with fitness and fun. Obstacle courses challenge them. Arts and crafts engage them. And group activities, snack time and special events give them time to interact and build their social skills – all in a non-competitive, nurturing environment. They will also provide a blend of their three main activities – Tumble Tots / Little Ustaads / Notes & Keys.

They will be taking a maximum of 15 children per camp.

  1. Madhumita says:

    Also Check out THE POMEGRANATE WORKSHOP

    I recommend them because they have innovative offerings- Children improvise a radio play, make a short film, put up a dramatic performance complete with sets etc . I like the fact that the workshops are designed specifically to work with the child’s imagination. Their emphasis is not the creation of a perfectly made end product and the creative journey to get there. Plus their sessions are lots of fun and the kids always seem to have a blast.
