IEI Summer Camp 2021 is a 2 week storytelling programme that has ‘play’ and ‘social-emotional wellbeing’ at the heart of it. The programme has been designed to bring to children hope and joy during this period of uncertainty by giving them an opportunity to immerse in the world of stories.
For 10 days the program will bring together children (age 8-14 years) for volunteer led read-aloud story sessions and engage them in mixed media art activities including Live Illustrations, Role Play, Drawing, Painting & Performance Art to promote comprehension and encourage creative exploration.
Through joyous, volunteer led activities the program aims to equip children with the exposure, skills and tools to approach life and learning during this pandemic. All program activities will be executed by volunteers, under the mentorship of team IEI.
