It is a four day retreat in which you get to experience the greatness of Sikhi, become inspired and realise yourself.

It could be the once in a lifetime opportunity to live in a community of likeminded people all wanting to learn, explore and develop their faith. It could also be just to get away from the daily grind of work and the nagging your receiving during the summer holidays!
The main reason for holding this camp is to give you the opportunity to be inspired by fellow campers, sevadaars and most of all by Guru Granth Sahib Ji’s teachings. While we spend the majority of our daily life engrossed in work, education, families and friends we find little time for our souls. This camp will offer you the opportunity to experience something like never before, this camp will explore how to recognise the meaning of life and reflect on our spiritual journey through self discipline and good actions. It will also help you to realise oneness with god through reading, listening, believing and then following the teachings of Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Finally you will also be able to take part in fun packed activities with attendees from across Europe!
