Urban Leaves Summer Camp

With the vacations in full swing, getting Samhith to write anything is a difficult task. With the IPL underway, it is next to impossible! However, here is something which at least made him write something down – the Urban Leaves Summer Camp. You can read more about the camp on my blog, and see the complete photo album here. Meanwhile, take a look at Samhith’s work…

The very first day, he found a dead butterfly. This seems to have been the highlight of the camp for him., because he couldn’t stop talking about it and showing to everyone!

He collected such a huge number of leaves and flowers, but these were all he stuck on his book…. He was supposed to sit down and name them, but got distracted and never got around to doing that!

A few lines about what he did….

And some pictures of what they made….
A self watering can…

And a method of drip-irrigation!

He made a new friend – who lives in same area, and was born on the same day as him – they were born just an hour apart! And together, they made the most of their last day at the camp – collecting dry leaves for mulching …..

Listening to Julius telling them stories and teaching them new songs….

The highlight of this day was the snake skin… a long one lying by a tree….

We finished the camp with a pot luck breakfast…. And made promises to join them as soon as we get back from our trip! Samhith now has a reason to get up early every Sunday!

  1. Wow Samhith! Looks like you had a wonderful birthday. I love that drip-irrigation thing. Hope you had a lot of fun playing with Udhav before you went on your summer trip. When you get back home say hi to Udhav for me.
