national Institute of Gurmat Studies (Inc.) is
pleased to announce its 19th SIKH INTERNA-
TIONAL YOUTH CAMP USA from Saturday,

Through this second camp in the US, IGS
plans to reach out to another 100 young Sikh
girls and boys and provide them an opportunity
to learn how to live according to the teachings
of the Gurus.
Beginning with an expose on the fundamental
tenets of the faith, the camp curriculum will
cover the history of the Sikh religion, an
acquaintance with the scriptures and the
Socio-cultural aspect of the Sikh way of life.
Besides, the camp will provide avenues for
the young Sikhs to develop group consciousness, self-discipline, leadership qualities
and the art of public speaking.
Practical workshops will include classes in
‘Shabad Kirtan’, Gurmukhi’ and Turban-tying.

Morning walk-and-run sessions, outdoor
games, trekking, a picnic, and a campfire will
add to the enjoyment of the camp experience.
