Parent Karma Yoga

 Parent Solstice Youth Camp Co-op Meetings 

Parents whose children participate in SYCC are required to attend Parent Karma Yoga Meetings. This meeting time is built into the camp schedule. There are no other programs or activities scheduled during Karma Yoga meeting times as Karma Yoga is an all camp practice.

  • Meeting Time: 9:15 a.m. Thursday, December 17th  &  Friday, December 18th
  • Meeting Location Map is available in the Registration Tent

 SYCC Parent Karma Yoga Meetings Include:                   

  1. Learning your responsibilities as guides on the day you serve and other directives and information that will support your children's experience at the event.
  2. Opportunities to co-op with other parents on the days that SYCC is not offered.
  3. Building support systems with other parents and the SYCC Service Exchanges.
  4. Meditating with other parents.
  5. Activities  including clown, art, and music will be provided for the younger children during the meeting and teens may go to the lake.

Parent Karma Yoga:

  • All parents of children ages 3-11 serve one day at SYCC as their karma yoga.  Parents of teens 12-17 are not required to do karma yoga in SYCC, but are required to do karma yoga in any other camp area.
    • If your child is 5 and over, our veteran managers and exchange participants suggest that you choose an area other than the one your child is in, because children tend to behave differently when parents are present, and may not engage as much with the other children and adults, which is part of the fun of camp.
    • You know your child best so if you feel that he/she will be in extreme stress, this should be considered in your choice of which group you work with.
    • Parents are expected to have cell phone numbers on their registration form (this will be on the child's badge) so we can contact you if necessary.
    • We find that sometimes children refuse to drink enough water; in this environment hydration is a must and children can become very emotional if they have not had enough to drink. Please make sure they are hydrated prior to coming to the co-op, and encourage them to drink throughout the day. If your child appears to be suffering from dehydration and refuses to drink, you will be contacted.
    • We have had parents in the past who have not shown up for their Karma Yoga day. This puts extra stress on the parents that do come, and on the children. Please be sure to participate and enjoy the day.
    • For parents of children ages 3-11, you will be asked to choose one full day to do your Karma Yoga in SYCC when you register and it is often that it will be during one of the tantric days.
    • When you register, you will be required to choose your Karma Yoga service.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding your participation please contact [email protected]
