WhizKids Summer Camp Program

This initiative is focused on children belonging to grade 6 to grade 11. This program includes 2-4 week long workshops titled “Discover Your Passion” which invite school kids to experience new avenues of creativity and personal development.

  • Mobile Application Development: Love playing Flappy Bird and Candy Crush? This is your chance to learn how to make your own app.

  • Marketing: Revolving around social media advertising, event organization, and sponsorship proposals, this workshop will prepare the youngsters for marketing careers they may be interested in.
  • Videography: For children interested in video-making, this workshop will help them acquire the expertise required in video making, animated movies, and video editing.

Apart from daily activities, each Friday will include some fun activities to let their creative juices flow. These will include:

  • Mak-i-stan: Make-i-stan is a space for creative people to share tools, knowledge and inspiration. It helps creative people bring their ideas to reality.
  • Bake Sale for SOS children: This will be a community building activity. All participants will bring in eatables and children from SOS village will enjoy them.
