Winter Camp

The winter camp was a totally different experience compared to the summer camp, but this being in a very good way. Compared to summer camp, winter camp had much fewer people, helping us to develop closer links towards each other and allowing our confidence to grow.

 

Balaji Youth Winter Camp: Friday 15th –  Sunday 17th December 2017

 

The Winter Camp this year is going to take place at the Shri Venkateswara Balaji Temple. This year’s Winter Camp will be based around the theme of “Philosophy of Hinduism” and we hope to analyse and better understand the values that would traditionally be attributed to a Hindu. Through activities such as lectures, workshops and debates, we will also be asking questions of one another and our religion. Whilst the cultural aspect of Winter Camp remains, it will be a great chance for youths to meet their friends again and enjoy other activities like sports and Seva!

 

The cost for Winter Camp will be £50. This includes food and accommodation for the whole weekend as well as transport and any costs associated with our other activities.  We will meet at the temple at 18:00 on Friday for registration and pick up on Sunday will be 17:00. A more in-depth timetable detailing the entire weekend’s activities will be sent to campers once their places are confirmed.
