Summer Youth Meditation Camp
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. Read More Activity Reports
