Do you remember summer camp? Two months of summer vacation from school, fun activities and holiday homework and summer camps. The summer camps were organised during the vacations and offered short term courses in art, craft, music, dance and various other activities that helped children develop a hobby and then further work on the same to gain a skill. Summer camps were not just fun they also helped children spend their time fruitfully making new friends and learning something new. They were the perfect place for children who were into every activity and wished to be part of each hobby class trying to know something about everything. But school is over and there are neither summer vacations nor summer camps in adult life.
So where do the grown-ups take courses or learn new skills or develop the skills they already have? How do the adults take classes and learn about new things that interest them and they would love to take it up as a hobby or time pass or even for learning if required?
