Derby Gurmat Camp Photos

On Sunday 11th January, Daas attended a one day camp, organised by Singh Sabha Gurdwara Derby and the local Sangat to commemorate the Guru Gobind Singh jee's Gurpurb. Speakers were invited from outside to deliver talks regarding the life of Guru Gobind Singh jee to various age groups. Bhai Joginder Singh jee from Leicester inspired the over 15 group with his inspiring and motivational talk on Guru ji’s life. Dr Daljit Singh Virk amd Bhai Kulwinder Singh also took classes. Other various local Singhs and Singhnian did great sevaa of keeping all the youngsters, especially the younger ones busy with lots of colouring, fun games and stories etc.

After the talks, all the groups went to the local Museum (within the Gurdwara Sahib complex). The newly opened Sikh Museum has lots of old relics from the time of Raja Ranjeet Singh and lots of old Sikh memorabilia. All the campers enjoyed learning about 18th and 19th century Sikh history.

To keep the young children busy they had a trampoline and bouncy castle. Sevadaars found it hard getting the children off, even after 1 hour of playing :)

A Gatka display was presented by Bhai Baljit Singh ji from Birmingham. After this all the campers enjoyed the new animated movie “Sundri”.

Finally prizes were given to all the campers.

Overall everyone really enjoyed the one day camp. May Waheguru continue blessing the local Sangat with more opportunities of doing sewa of the sangat and organising more camps. I look forward to the next one!

Dhan Hai Guru, Dhan Hai Teree Sikhi!
