The first Summer Youth Meditation Overnight Camp (Summer Youth Meditation Overnight Camp) has been held since 2013.
The wide variety of activities during the summer camp allowed the youths to keep active, collaborate, and make new friends. The masters taught the importance of gratitude and compassion through showing the youths the hardship of others. Converting these thoughts into action, the young camp goers made hand-crafted gifts for their parents and wrote down their prayers for those less fortunate in the world. During their stay at the temple, the youths also practiced giving back through helping with daily chores to keep up the temple. Through their actions, these young men and women demonstrated that they have retained and reflected on the teachings of the master and are now practicing Dharma.
Through interactive and lively and interesting meditation course guidance, children are exposed to the causal concepts of cause and effect and the cultivation of compassion, and learn to respect their parents, filial piety, cherishing good fortune and gratitude, have a break from the Internet world, learn to experience the joy of inner Zen in the interaction of students in their daily activities. Under the thematic guidance, with example and environment teaching, cultivate good daily living habits, so that young people can learn to respect the feelings of others and learn the respect and relationship between people in a worry-free, beautiful nature as a classroom environment. They also learn the etiquette of getting along with others and building and maintaining friendship.
