    Dear Parents

    On June 14, Sanskriti will host our annual mela, IndiaFest, on the grounds of the YMCA in Livingston.

    It is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our culture and heritage to our youth and the broader community.  

    We will be organizing a fashion show that depicts different regions of India.  We would love for Sanskriti students to participate in the show.  Please let us know if your child would be interested in participating.  

    What is required?
    -The fashion show will take place around 1:30pm on June 14 so you and your child will need to be at IndiaFest by 1pm.

    -There will be one practice session (time and date TBD) that your child will need to attend.

    -You will need to provide the clothing that will be showcased by your child during the fashion show.

    Please fill in your child's name, age and a brief description of the type of outfit they will be wearing and which region of India do they represent. 

    We also need parent volunteers for helping with the coordination of the fashion show.

    Sanskriti Summer Camp 2015 will include activities such as yoga, dance, music, cooking, and workshops (based on weekly themes. Themes from previous years were Famous Indian personalities, life in Indian cities verses villages, festivals etc.)


    This years themes: Indian landscapes & wild life , Indian architecture & monuments

    In music, the camper's learn a fun Hindi song each week which is performed for parents on Friday evening. Similarly in dance, a Bollywood song dance is choreographed by a Sanskriti volunteer and performed by the kids on Friday.

    Additionally the campers enjoy S.T.E.M. activities, arts & crafts and Desi sports like kabbaddi, kho-kno, cricket, badminton etc.  We even had a professional table tennis player who represented India in common-wealth games stop by to impress the kids one year.  In cooking session, a kid-friendly yet healthy item is cooked by the kids themselves. This is a lot of fun for them.

    We accept limited number of kids each year since we want to give individual attention to our campers. The campers are divided in two age appropriate groups for most of the activities. The camp is managed by a professional camp director with several years experience in managing such camps along with an assistant. A Sanskriti volunteer is present most of the day along with the above two individuals mentioned.

    You can email if you have specific questions.
