This year marks 17 years that the Florida Hindu Organization Inc. Shiva Mandir will welcome in over 100 youths to their week-long camp.
The youths attending this camp, in addition to weekly Baal Vikas Classes have flourished tremendously over the years. We are now at the point where before our eyes the same youths that attended our camps and classes in the beginning stages, are now walking proudly as professionals, as leaders in our society and upholding Sanatan Dharma.
Today we are at a pivitol time, where a new wave of youths in our society are getting ready to take the mantle of Sanatan Dharma and we implore all parents to enroll your children in this Camp and get them into our proven system with weekly Baal Vikas Classes. Growing up in America has its challenges as we all know, and for that reason we cannot relinquish our culture and our way of life that has maintained itself for countless of generations.
With that said, we welcome all to our 17th annual Hindu Heritage Youth Camp. This year the theme will reverberate around Devi Maa : The Power of Adi Parashakti, the Divine Mother: “Igniting the Shakti Within You!” The female aspect of God will be discussed – the importance of Mother – Social issues surrounding women in society today – in addition to Hindu ethics and living and breathing Sanatan Dharma. Indian games, sporting activities, arts and crafts, Garba, and much more will be enjoyed throughout the week.
Registration for the camp is now open. Early registration (before July 28th) is only $25 per youth for the entire week. Late registration: $30 per youth.
