From Saturday 23rd October to Sunday 24th October, youngsters from Huddersfield organised it's first ever Sikh Family Camp event at Guru Nanak Gurdwara Huddersfield. Recently with Guru Sahib's kirpaa, local youth have come together and set up 'Huddersfield Sikh Youth' group which is trying to arrange events and programmes to inspire the local Sangat. Huddersfield has lacked Gurmat Parchaar for many years due to Gurdwara politics, in-fighting, and lack of Gurmat understanding in the general community. However, with the success of the first Sikh Family Camp in Huddersfield it is hopeful that the Sikh youth will be inspired to walk the Guru's Path and take responsibility of Sikhi Parchaar in its local area. The camp provided a good opportunity for elders, young adults, parents, teenagers and young children to take a step closer to Guru jee and strengthen their Sikhi spirit.
