Jain Youth Camp.
At Jain Camp, campers learn how to apply Jain philosophy to their daily life.
Complex Jain concepts like Ahimsa (non-violence), Aparigraha (non-possessiveness), or Anekantewad (multisidedness) are simplified and made relevant to youth growing up in North America.
The Jain Camp curriculum is jointly created by educators and an Ontario Certified teacher. Classes are interactive and engaging and teachers encourage campers to question and think critically.
Jain Youth Camp has a whole host of activities, including Arts & Crafts, Campfires, Cultural Programs, Eco Workshops, Games, Hiking, Leadership Programs, Meditation, Interactive Classes, Swimming, Yoga, and more!
Jain Camp is held at YMCA Cedar Glen Outdoor Centre in Schomberg, Ontario just 40 minutes north of Toronto! Camp runs from August 3-6, 2023.
The Centre is on 263 acres of the Oak Ridges Moraine, and boasts many hiking trails, swimming pools, a super maze, new high ropes and low rope challenges, open playing fields, an organic farm, arts cabin, archery, and more. Further, campers will enjoy the fun indoor games lounge, comfortable teaching spaces, and dining hall with an awesome view!

Campers sleep on comfortable bunk beds. Waterproof mattresses are provided, campers need to bring their own bedding and pillows.
