Abhai Raj Singh, Wilderness Guide

Abhai Raj has enjoyed being in the outdoors/wilderness most of his life. As a young boy he went to YMCA camps and wilderness canoe camps in North Ontario, Canada. He spent six years as a US Army Ranger—most of that time out in the bush. After the Army, he worked for Outward Bound and other outdoor wilderness/adventure programs in North Carolina, Colorado, Minnesota, and North Ontario. The majesty of the wilderness—it's beauty, it's prana are a tangible, life-giving force to him and he looks forward to helping to make wilderness experiences available to kids at Khalsa Youth Camp.
