What are the sleeping arrangements at camp?
Campers sleep in bedrooms within one large building. Each bedroom has 4 campers of the same gender with one two-piece bathroom. Counsellors and Camp Directors sleep in the same area within their own bedrooms.
How does Towards Ahimsa keep camper fees so low?
Towards Ahimsa camps are much less expensive than the majority of summer camps on the market. We are able to keep low camper fees because all TA administrators, camp directors and instructors are dedicated volunteers who cover their own expenses. By passing our savings on to campers, we make summer camp accessible to more youth while maintaining a high standard of quality.
What will my child take away from this camp?
Camp provides a nurturing, inclusive, and supportive environment. We hope campers will leave with a higher sense of confidence and conviction in their own beliefs. Further, Campers will gain a practical understanding of Jain philosophy and learn how to apply Jain dharm into their daily life.
What is the maximum number of campers at a camp?
We accept a maximum of 50 campers. Our aim is to keep a small, community feel at camp.
