Khalsa Camp BC 2011...



Khalsa Camp BC (Canada) took place from 14th to 19th August 2011. The camp was a great inspiration and was 5 days of pure bliss! The camp has grown from strength to strength since last year. The presence of elder Gursikhs such as Master Niranjan Singh jee and Bhai Bharpoor Singh jee made the camp an uplifting experience. The highlight is always is the Amrit-velaa and Diwaans. With Guru Sahib's kirpaa all the campers did wonderful Keertan.

This year's camp was based on Gursikhi Jeevan. The talks were 'What is the Khalsa?' by Bhai Santbir Singh jee (Toronto), 'Khalsa Rehat' by Bhai Balpreet Singh jee (Toronto), 'Challenges of being a Sikh' by Bibi Rupinder Kaur jee (Surrey), and 'Best of the Best' talk. In the afternoons there were workshops led by the various speakers and Master Niranjan Singh jee.
