Camp Guru Ke Pyaare, Selma (California)...

From 25th December to 30th December, Camp Guru Ke Pyaare was held at Gurdwara Kalgidhar Sahib in Selma, California. With Guru Ji's Kirpa about 100 people attended the camp, from young children to adults. The theme of the camp was the Shaheedi (martyrdom) of the 4 Sahibzaade (sons of Guru Gobind Singh Ji). 

Below are some photos from the camp:

 Campers tying Dastaars on other camps

 That's what you call confidence, when you tie a Dastaar with your back turned to the mirror

A play by children on the Seva of Baba Moti Ram Ji

Through acting children remembered the great sacrifice of Baba Moti Ram Mehra Ji and his family who all became Shaheed for giving milk to Mata Gujjar Kaur Ji and the younger Sahibzaade.

It was really cold. The Sangat had blankets to keep them warm

 On the last day of camp the children were treated to a trip to ten-pin bowling alley



During the trip I stayed with Bhaji Manvinder Singh Ji and Bhenji Manpreet Kaur Ji. In the evening the children are taking a break with some Simran.
