I came to this camp through my school. I saw the flier in my school and I speak Hindi and I thought why not volunteer here. There were other volunteers too so we tried to make it fun. The kids were amazing too, they were kind of shy for a couple of days but after a while it was all-good. The projects were good. Cooking was really good. Some of the projects were little advanced for their level but they all grow up to it. This week I learnt, as I did not know, about monuments. I would definitely be back next year. You should volunteer for this camp because kids are really cute, the projects are very good and you feel like you are actually making a difference. You don’t feel that you are useless and just filling your volunteer hours, here you are actually making a difference.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and interacting with young kids. It was wonderful to learn about Indian culture and I also enjoyed helping out. Look forward to more time helping out next summer too.
Camp was a unique experience quite different from any other volunteer service I have ever done before. For one thing, there was an abundance of fun and enriching activities which managed to cleverly reinforce the material being taught. I noticed that my own Hindi was improving by just helping out. Also, I enjoyed the cooking since we were able to create delectable dishes with recipes that were simple and amusing. Every day of camp was unique and brought its own share of excitement and creativity through its innovative projects (i.e tie dye shirts, cooking, water balloon fights, and Indian games) and teachers that poured their heart and soul into their work. Even when the end of the day was approaching, the teachers showed just as much enthusiasm and you could tell they loved doing their job.
