"This special summer camp is going to be an exciting journey for the students. Right from day one, they will learn something new every day. They will learn to work in teams and respect each other. What they learn here will help them tackle the challenges of everyday life and give them the confidence to utilise their skills for self-improvement," Atishi was quoted as saying in the statement.

She also highlighted that this special summer camp is part of the vision of her predecessor in the Education department and former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia. The camp aims to help children understand that education is not limited to the classroom and textbooks alone, allowing them to explore the world outside and learn new things, she said.
