Lionheart is a revolutionary teenager's camp organised for teenagers between 13 and 17 years of age. It aims to :
36 participants had a fresh experience of the camp curriculum which covered spiritual, emotional and physical confidence. Workshops included improving inter-personal relationships (e.g. family bonds), increasing self-awareness in handling challenging situations and the importance of a positive sangat or friends.
The highlight of the camp was definitely the cosy, warm Inspirational Sessions in Darbar where our teens sang their hearts out and experienced the beauty of a relationship with Guruji.
In 2016, the camp was held in Gurdwara Sahib Katong. The camp once again had an amazing response with more teens coming back. Some key issues were brought up and talked about during the camp, such as, peer pressure, social media and its' consequences and bullying. The peer support network was once again a key goal of the camp and the success of this was seen throughout our other events where the teens worked together and did Sewa!
The third installment of the camp was held in 2017 at the Gurtaj Campsite in Johor Bahru. The camp focused on peer relationships. The camp, being in Malaysia, allowed for the teens to bond with one another without any connections with the outside world. The camp became a memorial one over the curriculum discussion topics and special events!This year, on 18th-20th June 2018, Lionheart will once again be held. The camp will be slightly different this year in that participants will only stay over one night in Central Sikh Temple. The camp will allow participants to go back after the activities on the first day and stay in Central Sikh Temple on the second day for a fun filled Movie Night! Join us this year to have a fun-filled experience that also makes you learn experientially about yourself!
