Shambhala Sun Summer Camp - August 8-15

\"\"Sun Camp takes place in an open field where campers take time away from their busy day-to-day lives to experience living simply in a natural environment. Campers live in tents, assist in the preparation of food and in the maintenance of camp, and live with one another. Sun Camp draws on military forms such as wearing a uniform and raising flags, which is based on the idea that discipline and camaraderie can be used to conquer aggression and produce peace and cheerfulness.

In addition, there are one or two meditation sessions a day, as well as hiking and other traditional camp activities like campfires (with marshmallows!) and singing, and a talent/skit night. At the end of Sun Camp we play a capture-the-flag game where discipline, teamwork, and a sense of humor are an absolute must! Living and practicing together in this way, cooking, eating, working and playing together in a multicultural context, allows campers to get to know themselves, their world, and each other in a unique and genuine way.

Practical

Cadet Command Workshop - August 5-8

The Cadet Command Workshop (CCW) is a three-day intensive training programme for 14 to 16-year-olds who have previously attended Sun Camp. The programme focuses on developing leadership skills that participants will need to help set up, and take care of the environment in which Sun Camp will take place. CCW is a way of preparing the ground before the younger participants arrive. To attend Cadet Command Workshop you must have also attended at least one previous Shambhala Sun Summer Camp and be able to attend Sun Camp afterwards.
