The children were given free classes in spoken English and in yoga. They also had many classes with the swamis and, of course, question-and-answer sessions with Amma.

The idea behind the camp was to give the children something positive towards which they can redirect their minds during their summer holiday, thereby helping them to get over the mental shock created by the tsunami.

Yoga acharyas from the Patanjali Yoga Vidya Peetham and English teachers from the Amrita Educational Institutions taught the classes.
