West Coast Sikhi Camp Held in California

Caruthers, CA – “VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH”, said the campers for the last time to each other. Tears, smiles and hugs were abundant among the campers and the organizers. The mood was one of great happiness and joy at the successful camp, but a great sadness that the camp was over. “When is the next camp?” shouted one of the campers, which was met with smiles and cheers from the other campers and organizers.
The West Coast Sikhi Camp, with the limitless blessings of the Almighty, was a great success, above and beyond what the organizers could have hoped for. Seventy five lucky campers experienced 4 days of fun filled learning, activities and of course, the delicious langar. The organizers were very appreciative of the campers’ cooperativeness and enthusiasm over the camp.
The uniqueness of the West Coast Sikhi Camp was its focus on having Sikhs living and working among society provide their remarkable input. Shattering the stereotype that keeping the Sikh physical image and employment are incompatible, the speakers (local as well as international) presented their talks and led discussions on Sikh religion, the faith, its meaning and its experience to the riveted campers, most of which was in English. Rather than being a one sided lecture, the talks from various speakers were followed by an open discussion, which fostered an environment of learning and enthusiasm.
The organizers wish to thank the campers for making the first ever West Coast Sikhi Camp a great success, the parents for their great trust in feeding their children’s spirituality and all of the volunteers that stepped up and made the camp come together. We are greatly indebted to Bhai Manvir Singh and Bhai Ravjeet Singh who joined us from England, along with Dr. Gurtej Singh from Sacramento. The three well renowned speakers led various topics and talks to acquaint the campers with history and beliefs of the Sikh religion.
One last note from the West Coast Sikhi Camp organizers: See you at the next camp and stay tuned to www.WCSikhiCamp.com for announcements.
