Kids had a whale of a time at the fun camps organised for them.
The city never looked more happening for school children.
Although some of them made travel plans to visit relatives and friends, lots of them stayed back to enjoy the summer camps that have become great places to be in to beat the heat.
A good number of summer camps are organised by the district administration while private and voluntary organisations have done their bit contributing to the flurry of activities that are as inviting as exciting.
The kids are spoilt for choice, for they have a wide range of activities to choose from.
The Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) has organised summer coaching camps in a number of games and sports being practised in different stadia.
The Indira Gandhi Municipal Corporation (IGMC) stadium in the heart of the city has acquired a rare buzz with scores of children swarming the sprawling ground in the early hours every day. The Corporation authorities are offering coaching classes in games like football, volleyball, table tennis, shuttle, sapak takraw and hockey, besides swimming and skating.
The municipal swimming pools in the city are bustling with activity with children of primary schools honing their skills to master the water sport.
