“We need leaders for the Aquarian Age. This camp builds leaders.”
~Yogi Bhajan

Khalsa Youth Camp (KYC) is an outstanding 7 to 10 day program designed for children ages 5 to 12 that emphasizes practical achievement and the early development of leadership skills. Since 1979, KYC has helped children build their confidence, strength, and spiritual identity.
KYC is founded on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan to share his vision of “Building Leaders of Tomorrow” in a healthy, happy, and sacred outdoor camp environment.

 “Children of the Aquarian Age do not need knowledge, they need experiences.” ~ Yogi Bhajan

Activities are specifically designed to help each camper feel secure in their inner and outer environments, bond with their peers, and soar with their strengths. In this time our children achieve that experience needed for the Aquarian Age.


"I wanted to express our deepest gratitude again. All four kids had such a wonderful time at camp. Their auras were positively glowing bright golden! WOW!! They have continued to do their morning Sadhana every day with amazing drumming (Mahali is quite the drummer!). I realize that making this practice an absolute daily priority is the biggest and most important gift I can facilitate! The ESSENCE of their whole experience was pricelessly wonderful and that's the true heart of it all! Thank you again soooooo much!"

"I had a great time at KYC. I liked singing in gurdwara. I liked how the cold showers woke me up. I liked the outdoor skills class and hiking and finding obsidian. I liked the carnival and the three legged race and treats. I really liked going to the ranch because we got to find peacock feathers and play in the pool and eat pizza. I liked working with clay and drawing fun things during art class." -Amar Emmanuel, 7 years old

"KYC is great because it gives my children the opportunity to learn more about sikhi and yoga as a daily lifestyle that they don’t consistently get to experience at home. I like the balance that has been found at KYC between helpful life tools and skills (yoga, meditation, outdoor skills, martial arts, art and music, Sadhana etc) and KYC makes it all fun. I understand that the children may face some challenges, but these usually lead to independence and self confidence. Yes! I plan to send my children to KYC next year and I recommend it to all my friends." -Amar's Mom

"I loved everything about KYC!  and it made me 500 times stronger.” -Mantra Simran Kaur, 5 years old.
