Annual Vedic Heritage Camp

Annual Vedic Heritage Camp 2021

The Annual Vedic Heritage Camp this year is co-organized by the three Chinmaya Mission Chicago centers (Badri, Gangotri and Yamunotri) along with Dallas/Ft Worth, Austin, and NW Indiana centers.

The selection of theme, activities, and schedule will ensure that the children are actively engaged and enriched with the value-based learning. The classes will be taught by spiritual teachers, who also have several years of experience working with children during similar camps and regular weekly engagements during the year.

This year, the camp is also offering an additional hour of games and activities that will  further benefit the kid and prepare them. These additional activities include STEAM workshops (Science, Tech, Engg, Art & Math) by handpicked volunteers and learning of Vedic Chanting.
