For children ages 3-17
Welcome! Solstice Youth Camp Co-op (SYCC) is a powerful opportunity for children to feed both their spirit and their sense of fun, while learning ancient yogic teachings that build strong bodies and strong character.
At Summer Solstice, people from all over the world gather together at Ram Das Puri to purify and uplift their consciousness on sacred land. Give your child the opportunity to dwell in that frequency, be free, learn and connect with their peers. Yogi Bhajan said that one of the primary reasons for all people, children included, to come to the Solstices was to feel each other. Solstice Youth Camp provides that opportunity.
SYCC was designed for both parents and children in mind. It is a Camp Co-operative, which means that the parents help run the camp. Everyone at solstice does Karma Yoga, or self-less service, everyday during camp. For all parents, you do your Karma Yoga in SYCC, helping out in various ways.
Resources, programs and support are available to parents, babies, toddlers, children and teens. See the following sections for more information:
A Solstice Youth Camp Program Guide will be given to each parent or guardian when you register on site. See that Program Guide for information such as where to drop off your child, when the pool will be open, where meals are served, as well as the times and locations of courses on parenting and relationships.
“Create dependable children, not dependent children. Give your children the basic value to face their own tomorrow, without being blinded by yours. Enable them to have strong personalities, not be helpless puppets. Position them for success, don’t paralyze them with the commotion of your emotions.” - Yogi Bhajan
