Khalsa Camp 2011...



Khalsa Camp UK took place from 26th to 31st August. As always the camp was a great inspiration and 6 days of pure bliss! What makes Khalsa Camp special is the elder Gursikhs that are there who share their wealth of knowledge, experience and pyaar. With Guru Sahib's kirpaa this year's camp was well attended with approximately 350 to 400 people at the camp. The majority of campers were new campers. There were campers from South America, Canada, Finland, Holland, India, Germany, Ireland and from across the UK.

This year the talks were based around the Khalsa. The talks included 'Romance of Enlightened Soul' by Dr. Daljeet Singh Virk (Derby); 'Rehit Pyaaree Mujh Ko'; Khalsa being relevant to the modern world by Bhai Satnam Singh (Gravesend); Life of the Khalsa by Bhai Surjit Singh jee (India); Qualities of a Gursikh by Bhenji Mandeep Kaur (Army Chaplain); Leadership and the Khalsa by Bhai Harinder Singh (USA); Sikh history and heritage by Bhai Jasprit Singh (V&A Museum); 'Moving Forward' by Bhai Joginder Singh (Leicester). With Guru Sahib's kirpaa the camp was great.

WOW! Just saw the Khalsa Camp UK 2011 video & heard some lectures from the camp on the YouTube channel. Seems like such a chardikala camp! I would love to attend in the future, hopefully!
