SARVAM conducted a 4-day camp with various activities for 900 students around 30 locations during half-yearly holidays. Running the camps in multiple locations allows more students to participate in the activities, making them more inclusive and accessible. It also provides opportunities for students from different geographical areas to come together and interact, fostering a sense of unity and camaraderie. Additionally, conducting the camp in multiple locations helps spread the benefits to a larger audience. It promotes the broader reach and impact of the program.

Handicrafts using colon papers, cooking healthy foods with no fire, greeting cards for Christmas and the new year, problem-solving for adolescents, yoga, dance, ethical stories, and sports are some activities for students aged 12 to 18. Problem-solving activities for adolescents can help develop their critical thinking skills, enhance their creativity and innovation, and improve their ability to make decisions and solve problems. These activities also promote teamwork, communication, and collaboration, which are crucial skills for success in both academic and personal aspects of their lives. Additionally, problem-solving activities give adolescents a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence, boosting their self-esteem and resilience.

Students between the ages of 8 and 11 enjoyed colouring, drawing, storytelling, greeting card making, cake preparation, skill games, and music. Skill games play a crucial role in the development of children by helping them improve their cognitive abilities, hand-eye coordination, and strategic thinking. These games stimulate the brain, enhance problem-solving skills, and encourage critical thinking, all essential for academic and social success. Furthermore, skill games provide a fun and engaging platform for children to learn, socialize, and compete with their peers, fostering a sense of teamwork and fair play.

The long-term effects of fostering unity and camaraderie among students through activities such as SARVAM's camp include increased tolerance and respect for diversity, improved communication skills, strengthened interpersonal relationships, and a greater sense of interconnectedness. These effects contribute to a harmonious and inclusive school environment where students collaborate, work together, and support each other towards common goals. This unity and camaraderie ultimately lay the foundation for a positive and cohesive society.

Students doing such practical activities during the holidays made parents happy, and volunteers also appreciated the students' involvement. The student's participation in practical exercises during the holidays positively impacted the community. By contributing their time and effort, students could positively impact society, inspire others to get involved and contribute to the overall betterment of the community.

There were healthy and tasty snacks and food for the students. Parents and students asked for more activities like this to be conducted frequently in the future.
