The Gopa Kuteeram “Li’l Gopas” Summer Camp 2012 for kids aged 4-8 yrs was held on June 23-24 at Houston Namadwaar.
By the immense grace of Sri Swamiji, the 2 days of camp went extremely smoothly and well. The camp was packed with an exciting array of activities that immersed the children in Indian culture and universal spirituality in a fun and engaging manner. The kids enjoyed doing Yoga exercises, singing fun English songs on Rama and Krishna, playing games, creating colorful craft-flowers and pen-holders and decorating a beautiful traditional Tanjore painting with gems and sequins. They also watched a video about temples in India, learned short slokas from the scriptures, listened to stories from the Puranas, and learned to sing and dance to kirtans composed by HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji on Lord Krishna.
At the end of the camp, the children dressed up in their traditional, colorful best, and put up a wonderful Musical-Dance Theater performance on Krishna’s Lilas for their parents, and also showcased all that they had learned in the two days. Gifts and certificates were given away to all the children.
