To all #syana2018 campers!

Camp is only a few days away we are looking forward to seeing everyone so soon! We are looking forward to all the upcoming activities, being with our camp family and the energy you all bring with you!!

Just a few reminders:

  1. Camp registration starts at 2:30 pm on Sunday, July 1st. We will not be able to accommodate registration prior to this time, so please plan on arriving after this time. The campsite address is YMCA Camp Copneconicat 10407 North Fenton Road, Fenton Twp, MI 48430, MI. Please try to arrive on time as Sunday’s program will start promptly at 5 pm.
  2. In efforts to make sure everyone feels at home at camp, Counselors have reached out to their campers as a way to introduce themselves and get to know their campers before the week starts. If campers haven’t responded to their counselor’s email, please try and do so.
  3. We have some important information for parents regarding registration at the campsite and the final day program please check it out here.
  4. We received input from all of you regarding allergies on your registration forms. If you have any further allergies/dietary restrictions you forgot to mention to us, please send us an email at info@sikhyouthalliance.org
  5. Because our hope is that campers will immerse themselves in sangat  and make lasting friendships at camp, we will be limiting the use of cellphones so they can spend quality time with their camp sangat. Phones will not be permitted during class time, divaan, or evening activities. Campers will be only be permitted to call home during meal and break times.

 **Wondering when meal times and break times are? Check out our Daily Schedule this year!**

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 ॥ 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!

We are planning on singing “The Song of the Khalsa” at this year’s campfire. If you want to learn the words and tune – listen to the following YouTube video.

Just a reminder – 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! 🙂

Again, we are excited to see you all soon! Please let us know if you have any questions, and you can always visit the blog for further details.

Chardhi Kala!

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
