The coolest summer camps for kids in Vizag in 2024!

Ah, summer vacations! We grown-ups often look back fondly upon our golden childhood summers. The long, school-free days, whether spent scarfing down mangoes, taking a life-changing trip, or in hours of play, stay with us for life as memories that shaped us. Today’s kids deserve such summers, too. Thankfully, there is no dearth of worthwhile summer camps in Vizag this year to spark your kids’ sense of curiosity and exploration. From trekking to experiencing spiritual upliftment, here’s a list of the best summer camps for your kids in Vizag:

ISKCON

Everyone knows the famous ISKCON Temple, located in Sagar Nagar. A spiritual hub, ISKCON Visakhapatnam is organising a Residential Summer Camp from 1 to 8 May this summer. As opposed to a day camp, this residential camp would provide an air-conditioned living accommodation and food for kids to stay in. The camp-goers can engage in the activities arranged, including yoga, meditation, dance, philosophy, music, sloka-recitation, story-telling from scriptures like Mahabharata and Ramayana, aerobics, and more! Children aged from 12 to 19 years old are eligible to partake in the camp.

Indira Gandhi Zoological Park

The Indira Gandhi Zoological Park, in Vizag, has a bunch of activities lined up for the months of April and May. In the coming weeks, the zoo will host events including an upcycling challenge competition on 22 April, and a conservation programme (with hands-on craft activity) on the importance of frogs on 28 April. Two batches of summer camps in May will have activities including a bird-walk, butterfly rearing workshops, and animal track identification workshops. Under expert guidance, children will also be introduced to activities like learning how to hand-rear animals and birds in the zoo hospital.

Eco Hikes


We all know and love the Borra Caves in Araku, but Eco Hikes is an organisation in Vizag that re-introduces them with a scientific flavour. Exploring two extended formations of the Borra Caves in the Eastern Ghats, the group will conduct day-long weekend visits to these places. Do note that these activities are only suitable for children aged 8 and above. For more details on how to participate, call +91 7989374188.
