SPIRITUAL CHILDREN’s CAMP
Spirituality. Fun. Friendships.
Siddhayatan Spiritual Children’s Camp teaches children how to live a more spiritual, healthier and happier life. During camp, children learn yoga, meditation and creative spiritual art, which incorporates special techniques to help them increase self-love and confidence, connecting and knowing their true self and to live a life with spiritual principles.
WHY A SPIRITUAL KID’S CAMP?
As a parent you have the important task to guide your children until they become adults. In the process you want your children to follow the highest principles in life because you know that this will lead them to reach their highest spiritual potential. As you help them build a strong foundation through universal spiritual teachings, you know that they will become strong, courageous, and wise individuals ready to tackle life’s demands, responsibilities and challenges.
Many children are born spiritual but sometimes lack the right guidance. If children pick up valuable spiritual tools early in life they have the opportunity to live a nonviolent life. When children follow a nonviolent life from an early age, they automatically become more peaceful, respectful, insightful, more connected with their true selves, have more discipline, become more inclusive, more open minded, nonjudgmental, flexible and tolerant.
About the Spiritual Children’s Camp
A spiritual children’s camp
to help kids shine and blossom!
Siddhayatan’s Spiritual Children’s Camp was created to give children the opportunity to be in a spiritual environment, where they can be themselves, express their creativity, make lasting friendships, and learn spiritual teachings from living enlightened master Acharya Shree Yogeesh.
We have created a unique program that is fun and exciting for kids, which incorporates spiritual principles to help them find their inner courage, think positively, be open-minded and accepting of others, and live a fearless life of compassion and integrity. Your child or children can begin their spiritual journey early in life as they gain exposure to Siddhayatan’s teachings of Non-Violence, Compassion, Love, Soul Awakening and Transformation through fun activities such as Purnam Yoga, Meditation, Spiritual Art, Mantra Chanting, and much more. This camp can guide your child into a meaningful life where they follow their true soul’s nature!
