Leicester Sikhs Announcement

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa
Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Sangat Ji

Since 2006, Leicester Sangat have been running Sikhi Camps at various Gurdwara Sahibs in Leicester* during every School and College holiday for children, leading up to Guru Granth Sahib ji Mahraaj's 300 years GurGaddi Divas.

In 2006, It was decided there will be 7 Camps (as there were 7 different holidays for children from school/college) running to October 2008.

The Central Theme of Every Camp (6 so far in this 'series' since 2006) has been under the "Footsteps to Guru Ji" banner:
"Take One Step Towards the Guru... The Guru Takes Thousands Towards you!"

And now, here we are today, with the Final Camp of this series, Camp (or "Footstep") Number 7, the Final Footstep.

The Elder Campers (12 to 18years) have been saying for a long time to do a Residential Camp, as the last residential camp was in 2006 time. So, with Guru Ji's kirpa, this Final Camp will be a Residential Camp.

With Guru Ji's kirpa and with Sangat's Pyaar, between 140 and 190 children and teenagers attend these camps.

There are a number of Promo videos that are being worked on, but not yet completed. In the Meanwhile, please view the following 2 videos that have been uploaded onto Youtube for the previous camps:

- Footstep 1 Camp - Gurdwara Sahib, Ashford Road, Off Welford Road
- Footstep 2 Camp - Guru Tegh Bahadur Gurdwara, East Park Road
