3HO Foundation International’s Solstice Sadhana Celebrations wouldn’t happen without Service Exchange participants. We are a community event, by the people, and for the people. The success of the event depends on each person’s dedication and commitment to doing seva (selfless service). If you decide to become a Service Exchange member, this will be the defining, predominant experience of your Solstice.
One of the most exciting rewards of Solstice is the opportunity to co-create the event through daily participation at every level. Our interdependence as a Global Community of Living Yoga creates a sense of intimacy that adds depth and meaning to everything we do at Solstice.
Your Commitment to the Service Exchange Team, 3HO, and the Global Community
As a Solstice Service Exchange Team member your principal commitment is to make your service area successful. As a member of the team, you will serve approximately 5-6 hours a day in your service area. Arrival, departure, and service dates vary depending on the service area. You must be available for the entire duration of the service dates. Details for specific areas are listed below. If you arrive late or depart early you will be charged an additional $54/day.
Service Exchange Team Members are expected on-site by 6:00 pm the day before their service starts in order to acclimate, and have ample time to set up their personal tents before it gets dark.
No refunds will be given to Service Exchange participants after the end of early registration; no credits for future events after the 10th of June for Summer and the 10th of December for Winter Solstice.

Parents Traveling with Children
The Solstice Youth Camp Co-op is the only area that parents can apply for unless there are two parents. The second parent can apply for any position as long as one parent is serving in the Co-op.
You may not serve on other teams unless another parent/guardian (18+) will be providing care for your child. If you choose to apply for another area, let your area manager know you’re traveling with children and will have to serve one day with the Solstice Youth Camp.
