My daughter Theresa spoke at length about the animals that she “got to know” and cared for several times throughout the school year . . . no other camp from last summer had that sort of influence & "staying power” with her. Skanda is addressing & meeting a very special need in people that most people do not even realize they have. — Charles White, Summer at Skanda parent
Summer at Skanda teaches children to become compassionate, loving caretakers to the animals and to nature, while also building self-confidence and leadership skills. Daily activities include feeding and grooming the animals, organic gardening, nature walks, art projects, recreational games, and plenty of bonding and play time with the animals.
