HSS-Atlanta to organize Heritage Camps for Schools' Spring Break

Atlanta, GA Wednesday, March 24, 2004 Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh's Atlanta Chapter has organized day-long Hindu Heritage Camps, from April 5th till the 9th in five different locations in Atlanta and the vicinity. The venues for the camps are located in the areas of Marietta, Dunwoody, Duluth, Alpharetta and Norcross covering all the counties that comprise Greater Atlanta.

The days of the camps coincide with those of the School Spring break of the County public schools that most Hindu-American kids attend and thus aiming to enrich their short vacation with some meaningful activity. Says Manika Singh, a volunteer for HSS youth activities in Duluth, "During the Spring Break the school kids are off from School but most parents have to work; therefore they either hire a baby-sitter for the kids or try to engage them in some activity. So we thought we can help enrich this Spring Break experience of kids by imparting them some cultural and traditional values".

The day long activities of the camp integrate both, the physical and intellectual aspects while at the same time doing so with emphasis on the cultural, spiritual growth and personality development based on Hindu Dharma. The activities comprise of Yoga, Suryanamaskar, Cultural games, Stories, Arts & Crafts, Group- discussions, etc among many others. The camps are very nominally charged from $5 to $10 per registrant, depending on the venue and include Lunch, snacks and a free gift. For more details of the camp or registration information contact Dinesh at 404-661-8322
