Looking for a new experience for your little ones this winter? Why not try Krsna Kidz Camp at ISKCON this located at Hare Krsna Temple, 383 Lenox Drive, Detroit, MI this November.
Yes, you read correctly. A children's camp that is religious, in Detroit, that is not one of the Abrahmic religions.
In its annual camp, children will be able to have a wonderful time, while learning spiritual values and Krsna Consciousness. One parent from last year states
"I just wanted to send a note to congratulate you all on the wonderful camp you conducted at the Iskcon Mandir.
My children and I learned so much from the camp. I live in Ann Arbor which is a good hours drive from the temple.
So I decided to stay during the 4 days of camp with my 3 children at the Mandir. The prabhuji's and the mataji's were so warm and friendly and welcoming. My children and I made so many friends. Infact (sic) my children were sad to see the camp end on Saturday.
I couldn't believe my eldest daughter was chosen to play the part of Lord Krishna in the small play that the older children performed for the other parents on Saturday. With all the positive encouragement and help of her teachers at the camp she did an amazing job! My husband and I were very surprised!"
Pagan education of children at camp is a relatively needle in the haystack phenomenon. Many turn to homeschooling in order to supplement the gap in opportunity. "Homeschooling offers a curriculum that you, as teacher and parent, control," states Christina Aubin, in her essay "Education and the Pagan Child" (http://www.witchvox.com/white/pagan_education.html).
Unfortunately, camps for group activities are not in popular circulation in Southeast Michigan. So, for those who can take advantage of one that represents their views without compromise, it is a more than a notion to jump on the chance.
The camp starts Wednesday November, 27, 2013 and lasts to Saturday November, 30, 2013, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. For more details, please go to their website at http://www.krsnakidzcamp.com/index.php.
