Yogi Bhajan recommended camping upon the beautiful land of Guru Ram Das Puri to keep us connected to the Earth and to the Solstice energy. Most attendees bring their own tents and camping gear. Please set up your tent in the designated tenting areas. There is no additional charge for tenting. There are three main tenting areas.
Tantric Hill: This is our largest tenting area. This area has a shower facility, and is the closest to the tantric shelter. It is on a hill and is open and exposed to wind and dust, please make sure to stake down your tent properly. Tantric Hill is the most convenient area for attending morning Sadhana. It is also the farthest away from the camp generators, so it is generally quiet at night. There is a designated area for seniors camping near the Tantric Shelter.
Shakti Valley: So named because this valley is where International Women's Camp is held. This area has a shower facility. The valley is the quietest tenting area. It is also somewhat protected from wind and dust. Camping here means you have to walk up a hill to get to the main camp area and the Tantric Shelter.
Water Tower: This area has a shower facility. This area is traditionally a family tenting area. There will be children camping in this area. This area can be noisy. Water Tower area is conveniently located close to camp. It is a short walk down hill to attend classes and morning Sadhana. Although also on a hill, this area tends to be somewhat sheltered from wind.
