Junior Youth Camp and Children’s Camp
In support of the strategy outlined by the Universal House of Justice in their letter of February 8, 2012,
“… the Baha’i Council has made the decision not to hold any children and junior youth camps at the Sylvan Lake Baha’i Centre this summer which would take the youth out of their clusters for an entire month and require resources at the regional level which need to be focused on learning to work with youth in neighborhoods and clusters. This summer is also the time for construction of the new dining facility at Sylvan Lake making it difficult to create a safe environment for these program participants. Camps and programs for children and junior youth can be held locally at the cluster level, and regional family camps and seasonal schools will continue either at Sylvan Lake or at other venues during construction.”
— Feb. 19, 2013 letter from the Baha’i Council of Alberta
This is a big shift. We understand this may be disappointing for some, however we encourage you to see this as an exciting opportunity to serve locally and initiate neighborhood programs of your own!
