During the May 2008 summer vacation, over 22,000 balaks and balikas aged under 13, from throughout Gujarat and Mumbai, benefitted from special summer training camps. The camps, each lasting between 5 and 7 days, were held at 75 locations for balaks and 70 for balikas in which children from 4,920 Bal and Balika Mandals participated. Organized by the Children’s Activities Central Office, the camps focused on the all-round development of children, giving training and guidance on satsang, education and personality development. The children learned general knowledge, study techniques, yoga-pranayam, English, public speaking, monoacting, dance, music and computing. A variety of presentation techniques were used to teach the children in an entertaining, interesting and informative way.
