2007 SYANA Gurmat Camp

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

We are so very excited to see you all in just a week! We are looking forward to an awesome upcoming week. In order to have a smooth week together, here are a few reminders:

  1. Please arrive at the campsite no sooner than 2:30 pm but before 4:30 pm on Sunday, July 1st. Please meet us at the Conference Center (Kesgarh Sahib) in order to check-in and find out about your lodging for the week. Parents – please turn in all medication, including Tylenol/Ibuprofen, at registration to a camp physician. Also, be sure to include instructions on dosage and we will ensure your child receives their medication as needed.

  2. Just in case you’ve missed it in the past several emails, DON’T FORGET YOUR VAAJAS! 🙂 In order to gain the most from your time in keertan class, it is helpful to have your own vaaja or keyboard.

  3. A list of items to bring to camp is on our FAQ on our website.  Please take a look at this to make sure you are prepared for the week.

    • A couple things to point out, please bring a reusable water bottle so you can stay hydrated during the week!

    • We will have the opportunity to participate in several water sports during the week. If you are interested in going in the water, please be sure to pack modest swimwear. Hairdryers may also come in handy!

    • Make sure to have enough Dastaars, Chunnies/bandanas for the week. It is a camp requirement that your head be covered throughout the day.

    • Don’t forget your bedding! You will need bedsheets/blanket/sleeping bag and a pillow.

  4. Our theme shabad for this year is: ਕਿਨ ਬਿਧਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਗੁਸਾਈ ਮੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ਰਾਇ ॥ ਕੋਈ ਐਸਾ ਸੰਤੁ ਸਹਜ ਸੁਖਦਾਤਾ ਮੋਹਿ ਮਾਰਗੁ ਦੇਇ ਬਤਾਈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

  5. Please click link for the TUNE. We welcome you to listen to the shabad to become familiar with the words but guarantee, by the end of the week, you will be well-versed in the shabad!

  6. If you are graduating this year, please send us a quick email letting us know so we can celebrate you with our camp family!

Stay tuned for more emails from us this upcoming week! We are very excited to see you all very soon!
