Program for Young People
The Meditation Youth Camp
The Meditation Youth Camp is a 3 week program for young people in elementary school, middle school, or high school. The camp is held during winter and summer school breaks. During this time, students meditate, find their true self, and establish wise personal values, so that they may live in the world with minds as wide as the Universe. Indeed, the Meditation Youth Camp offers an all-round, comprehensive education for all young individuals, so that he or she may achieve a human completion. Our young students grow spiritually, and their attitudes toward life change dramatically. Numerous research studies regarding the many positive changes young students experience are currently underway by many educators as well as researchers.
Since its inauguration in 2000, well over 17,000 students have taken part in the Meditation Youth Camp as of July 2012.
