Visakhapatnam: As summer vacation begins, educational institutions are charting out camps to suit children of all age groups. From sports to indoor entertainment and adventurous activities, institutions are engaging children in a host of events centred on their interest.

Helping children to make the most of holiday time, some of the schools commenced summer camps, while others organised short term camps.

In government schools, yoga summer camps have commenced. As a part of it, 107 schools across the state are facilitating free training to students in a variety of yoga asanas and encouraging them to follow a healthy lifestyle.

With a special focus on inculcating human values, Sri Sathya Sai Mandir, Ukkunagaram, organised a free summer camp.
