Do the children have to stay in the ashram?
.......................................................
It is recommended that children stay in the ashram for the entire duration of the camp as it will be a special experience for them.  However, upon special request, children may be allowed to attend the camp without staying over (provided parents can assure they will be brought on time everyday and will attend all the sessions).

What do the children have to bring?
.......................................................

1.  THINGS TO BRING

  • Bedding: bedsheet, small pillow and blanket.
  • Pull-overs and other warm clothing if necessary.
  • Special medication (if any) and/or medicines for common illness.
  • FOUR sets of comfortable and respectable clothes in keeping with the ashram atmosphere (traditional clothing even better).

  • A bag to carry books and other things to class.
  • Water-bottle.
  • Yoga mat if available.

  • Writing and drawing instruments (pencils, pen, eraser, pencil sharpener, compass)
  • CRAFT ACCESSORIES – Scissor, ruler, glue, etc.
  • ART ACCESSORIES – paints, brushes, colour pencils, pens and markers, crayons, etc.

2.  THINGS NOT TO BRING

(a) Since the purpose of the camp is to cut-off from regular activities and explore new things, it is best that mobile phones, MP3 Players, iPADs, iPODs, playing cards and other games/gaming/electronic equipment are avoided.  There will be better things to do.

(b) Children will be in safe environments.  Hence there will be no need for constant communication through mobile phones.  Parents can call the ashram phone if at all necessary.

(c)  Children will be served healthy food, snack and beverages 5 times a day.  Hence, parents are requested not to pack food-items in their bags.

(d)  Food items carried by children causes the dormitories to get very dirty.  In case parents feel the need to pack some snacks, they are requested to hand them over to the ashram so that they can be stored carefully and shared with all.

(e)  Please avoid any valuable items like jewellery, etc.  Children will be responsible for the safety of their belongings.  Please avoid anything that is not absolutely necessary.

What else do I need to know?
