The Hindu Students Council, one of the largest Hindu organisation in North America is going to host its 25th Annual Collegiate Camp. The event will be held at Shanti Mandir, New York. The council also hosted a Global Dharma Conference in September 2015 which featured about 55 notable performers and speakers. HSC will now be concluding its Silver Jubilee celebrations with the Annual Collegiate Camp. Since 1990, the Camp has been a notable part of the college’s youth summer activities.
According to hindustudentscouncil.org, “Campers from all over the US get together to learn about our great heritage and culture, play exciting team building games, engage each other in stimulating discussions, enjoy blissful yoga and meditation sessions and many other activities. The evenings are filled with games and a camp fire, where campers relax, share memories and create new ones. So, grab a friend or a family member and come on over”.
