IAWW Youth Program - CAMP BHARAT 2018

August 7-11, 2018

Fort Worden, Port Townsend

Camp Bharat is a five-day, four-night camp that is planned and executed by IAWW Youth Board members with direction and advice offered by their Youth Board Advisors and the Youth Program  Director.

Camp Bharat is for children of Indian heritage and provides the space for the youth to come together, play and connect with each other, share experiences and develop lasting friendships. A day in the life of a camper includes basic morning Yoga, games (dodge ball, kabbadi, kho, ciricket, pittoo), various afternoon workshops. Evenings are with story time, camp fires, Garba dance workshops, and walks to the beach. The Indian festival of colors 'Holi' is celebrated in the open space and is always a popular event. As the children leave camp on the fifth day, they discover the depth of their connection and bonds to each other having created the 'Family Camp Bharat'.
