A special feature of Chinmaya Mission centres worldwide are residential and non-residential spiritual camps for children during weekends and school holidays with entertaining, thought-provoking themes and subjects. Duration of camps vary from two days to three weeks and provide booster doses of inspiration. They offer time for bonding — among the sevaks and also among the children. Eagerly awaited, they are channels for action-oriented fun activities.
Fostering teamwork, friendship and leadership, the camps are highly interactive and specifically fashioned for specific age groups. A Camp schedule typically includes Vedanta classes, Sanskrit chanting, meditation, yoga, group discussions, creative workshops, bhajans (devotional songs), sports and recreation (treks, movies, talent shows, skits).
