The discussion emphasized the need for more creative ways of vacation. The panellists recommended a model of taking a break while developing life skills. 

"Children have so much energy, which is not spent. It is tough for them to sit still even for 10 minutes, in a 40 minutes class.  We, Assisi Vidyaniketan Public School has a specialised summer camp for children where they can discover many new skills and hobbies. This camp also has space for children with special needs. We started summer express 6 years ago, in which we have a blend of activities meant for children from the age of 6 to 13. We provide a combination of art, personality development, culinary skills, trekking, and even farming. The summer camp has a therapeutic effect for children'" said Rosemary Joy of Assissi Vidyaniketan Public Shool, Ernakulam.
