Our week long youth camp is coming to a conclusion and this is the final day of classes. Today we ventured into the world of gratitude and appreciation. As part of today’s class exercise each student was asked to write a note of gratitude to their parents. In doing so they had to be specific about what they were grateful for. They were also asked to write a note to their counselor and one other person at their week long camp.
In addition to this, in the older group’s class a skit was enacted about how first generation American born Hindu parents can use the guidelines and spiritual tools of Hinduism to guide their children with everyday challenges that they face in the world. Well prepared and excellently executed, our campers proved to be wonderful actors!
