The first Hindu Heritage Youth Camp (HHYC) started in 1985. The idea was simple – inspire the younger generation by teaching them the rich values and ideas of their heritage.
Our camp takes place over two 5 day sessions – divided by age – at Camp Lantern Creek. These days are filled with outdoor games, cultural activities, educations sessions, delicious food, and awesome friends.
All of this is made possible by our counselors, many of whom are former campers, that spend the course of their summer planning for HHYC. This ranges from becoming dodgeball experts to fine tuning presentations on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
In the end, we hope this experience allows campers to walk away with confidence, lifelong friends, and understanding what it means to be a Hindu.
