Mamangam to organize Summer Camp for Kids

The summer is on its way to hit us at Kerala and so are the kids counting the days to their holidays. The usual vacation recipe for most families include visiting the grandparents, going to a few places, and majorly whiling away time sitting at home doing nothing productive and before you know it, the holidays are over.

Childhood is one of the best times for you steer them into future success by helping them learn a few new things and hopefully discover what they like or dislike. The team at Mamangam is looking to do so by having its first Summer camp from the 1st of April to the 7th.

It is designed for kids in the age group 4-13. They have organized the camp with a lot of different activities. The daily schedule is from 9 am – 4 pm and it includes both planned and fun activities each day. The morning session from 9 am to 1 pm is fixed for the week and the post-lunch session is a new activity each day. Refreshments will be provided for the kids. Lunch has to be sent along with the kids or the parents can bring in lunch for the kids during the lunch break which is between 1-2 pm.

The fee for the camp is Rs.7500. The intensive camp has the following sessions and they are conducted by eminent people from their respective fields to introduce and teach your kids to various arts.

Morning sessions:

YOGA is not about being good at something. It’s about being good to your- self!!

The class kicks off with Yoga at 9 am by Rohini Oberoi along with Ms. Meher. Rohini Oberoi is the owner and teacher of Kochi Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre (affiliate). She is also the in-house yoga trainer at Mamangam.

“Yoga in childhood gives young people the best foundation for life. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves.”


After the kids have had their yoga session they are given a 15 minutes break for refreshments


The second session is the contemporary dance sessions by a shining star in France and is also the resident artist at Mamangam.

Great dancers are not great because of their technique but because of their Passion. Ms. Angele is looking forward to meeting the kids and spark such passion in them.






The next session that follows is the Hip – Hop sessions which begin after the kids are given a half an hour break.

Dance first, Think Later, it’s the natural order when it comes to dancing. The kids will learn a few popping and locking and you will soon have them do the moonwalks all over the house.

The morning session comes to an end with the Lunch break that is from 1-2 pm.

After-noon sessions
