Hello Everyone, Jacksonville Hindu Day Camp will be happening in person this year! Children ages 7 and up are welcome to join. Posted below are the sessions for this year's camp:
First Session: June 6th - 10th and June 13th - 17th,
Second Session: July 11th - 15th and July 18th - 22nd.
Typically the camp is run on a day-to-day basis, the first half of the day we focus on the more traditional aspects of Hinduism, implemented through our morning puja, Sanskrit classes, and philosophy lessons. Every year we choose a theme, and this year, our theme will be the Puranas. This theme will be incorporated throughout the camp, but will mostly be implemented through the philosophy lessons, as we will instill core Hindu values through stories surrounding the theme. Following Lunch, we begin more of the fun activities such as Clubs and our special activity. The Club that a camper participates in will be decided on the answers given in the application; each camper has a choice of Arts and Crafts, Dance, Drama, Career, or Yoga, and our older campers (grades 9th and 10th) will be in C.I.T, or counselor in training.
The special activity of the day is different per day and aims to focus on a certain Hindu holiday/celebration (Holi, Diwali, Raakhi) or a day related to the theme (Rangoli, India Day).
Electronic copies of the application (both counselor and camper) are attached. A flyer for JHDC has also been attached. If you have any questions about the camper application, you can email us at j[email protected].
