Founded by Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru in 1956 it is a realization of his dream of an out of school activity center for children. Throughout the year Bal Bhavan organizes numerous creative and innovative programmes at local, state, zonal, national and sometimes even at international level.
The National Children's Assembly and Integration Camp is an annual feature of Bal Bhavan in which children from all parts of the country and abroad participate.
This camp not only promotes national but international integration, amity, brotherhood and goodwill amongst children of our country and children from our friendly countries who wish to know about the culture of India.
