HYDERABAD:  With an aim to help children chase their dreams and motivate them, Make a Difference (MAD), a non-profit organisation working for under-privileged children, organised a ‘Dream Camp’ at the Hidden Castle resort here Sunday.

Forty girls from various shelter homes attended the one-day camp and learned about edutainment, which is usually not taught in the classroom. The aim of the experiential camp was to help children dream about their future goals and understand what it takes to achieve those dreams through personal discovery, exploring new talents by challenging themselves and taking responsibility of their actions.

Held for the seventh time in the city, the Dream Camp included activities like learning archery, swimming and ‘Dream Trees’, a session where kids map their strengths and support systems that branch out to help them touch their dream.

“The trip through the tunnel was scary but very exciting. I think that was my best experience in dream camp today.” Shanti, a Class IX student said.

Sangeetha, a Class VI student felt that the camp helped her to believe in her dreams. “Dream tree session made me believe in my dreams. Also, I learnt that waking up late everyday and going to class late is a bad habit and I am going to leave it here,” she said.

“The Dream Camp was organised to provide children the right exposure, enabling them to work in a group environment or a practical real life scenario and to help them open up their minds,” said Tejaswi Swati, a volunteer.
