Pictures of the recent family camp at JKP Barsana Dham, Shree Maharajji's ashram in America. (For further information please visit: www.Hindufamilycamp.org or call Barsana Dham at 512-288-7180.

Soon our children will be grown, getting married and having children of their own. Who is responsible for teaching your grandchildren about the greatness of Sanatan Dharm? How will they know about the great heritage they are being born into? What will they do in school when they are learning about ‘Hinduism’ and are confronted with derogatory misinformation that is in their textbooks? How do your children feel now? Are you equipped with Scriptural knowledge to help them feel proud to be a Hindu in America?

At Barsana Dham Temple, we are committed to teaching the authentic knowledge from the glorious Divine Scriptures such as The Vedas, Puranas, Ramayan, Bhagavad Gita and Bhagwatam.

With the blessings of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj the teachers of Barsana Dham are bringing the Scriptures to life during our Hindu Family Camps.

Four times a year, families from all over the country choose to invest in their children’s future by attending the camp. While immersing in devotional, educational and family fun activities, everyone is given the opportunity to have their questions answered, spend quality time with their family, meet new friends and enjoy the serene atmosphere of the temple and beautiful grounds.

Families of all ages are invited to attend. Adults, teens, youths and children learn devotional philosophy that provides answers to fundamental questions such as, “Who am I? Who is God? Am I separate from God? How can I meet God?" As the answers to these core questions of our life are unfolded through the teachings of the scriptures of Sanatan Dharm, participants gain a firm faith and pride in the Hindu heritage.

“My teenager learned about all the great world discoveries that came from India and told me he was proud of being a Hindu for the very first time. Bonding with other Hindu youth and families made even my Camp experience not only enjoyable, but I sincerely gained a lot.”

Kids activities include devotional stories, arts and crafts, cooking, leela performances, kirtan, meditation, creative movement and dance, parachute play, peacock walks and much, much more.

Youth activities include interactive knowledge sessions, learning shlokas, leela plays, devotional ‘Jeopardy’, scriptural storytelling, arts and crafts, dholak, harmonium, cymbals, yog and outdoor activities.

Adults will learn the basics of Hinduism and how to practice meditation. They will also choose electives such as gentle yog asanas, harmonium, dholak or cymbal playing classes. The schedule includes enjoyable family activities like ras garba, historical Saint reenactments, campfire, water Holi, holy dip in Radha Kund and family olympics.

“My family gets more understanding of Hinduism, which strengthens our trust and faith in God, every time we attend the Barsana Dham Family Camp. The most important teaching we learned is to love God and form a relationship with God. This knowledge carries us through difficult times. It strengthens our practice of Hinduism at home.” Ashay, Austin, TX
