NEW CAMP DATES -VIRTUAL SPRING BREAK CAMP FOR KIDS (Three days) – APRIL 13-15, 2021

Februray 13, 2021 (Updated due to the change in Spring break dates)

Namaste Parents:

RE: THREE DAYS VIRTUAL SPRING BREAK CAMP – APRIL 13, 2021 to APRIL 15, 2021

Our 2020 Virtual Summer Camp was a tremendous success with over 55 children participating from Canada and the USA and we would like to thank you for making this possible.

With this in mind, we are pleased to announce that the Voice of the Vedas (VOV) Camp Committee will be hosting a three (3) days Virtual Spring Break Camp from April 13, 2021 to April 15, 2021. Our goal is to inspire our children in this Camp to view the changes around them as positive with full potential for growth within themselves and their surroundings.

As our world is transforming before our eyes, we will aim to remind our children of their role and the important part they play within this universal transformation. We will examine how the multiple facets of mankind, nature and life in general are evolving into patterns we have never experienced and demonstrate how the Sanatan Dharma values we teach at our Camp are at play and needed now more than ever before. We will also continue with the celebrations of festivals and accomplishments as one way to uplift and motivate against the anxieties caused by the constant changes and new norms. With the season of Spring and Holi occurring in March, Holi is the chosen festival of celebration.

In line with the Holi theme and teachings, we will bring forward qualities such as kindness, self-development, servitude, leadership, resilience, and adaptability as being key success factors to the changes within and around us. You can look forward to this exciting new Spring Camp that promises learning and activities such as cooking, crafts, story-telling and yoga – all in a fun way.

We hope you will join us as we are looking forward to spending this time together.

Thank you!
