Celebrating Tradition & History 9th December, Fresno, California:
In the spirit of preserving tradition, history, customs and values
camps provide a platform to experience Sikhi. In every nation, the
youth are its future. These camps are in the spirit to transform the
youth into informed and vibrant members of society . Topics related to
civic, educational and personal development programs will gear them to
learn how to become contributing members towards the UN millenium
goals. The workshops on tradition and history will train the youth to
act responsibly in their roles in life guided by the concept of
Miri-Piri (spiritual and temporal), as established by the 6th Guru,
Guru Hargobind Saheb. This concept established that, the Sikh Nation is
for ever free for times to come and owes its allegiance to one God
(Akaal Purakh). It will train them to stand for the protection of
human-rights and justice for all, provide humanitarian aid to the
needy, and provide empowerment through education to all. These camps
provide a unique environment that promotes friendship, leadership, and
community. UNITED SIKHS recommends these camps for the youth.
