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.
