Shambhala Sun Summer Camp - August 8-15

Sun Camp takes place in an open field where campers take time away from their busy day-to-day lives to experience living simply in a natural environment. Campers live in tents, assist in the preparation of food and in the maintenance of camp, and live with one another. Sun Camp draws on military forms such as wearing a uniform and raising flags, which is based on the idea that discipline and camaraderie can be used to conquer aggression and produce peace and cheerfulness.

In addition, there are one or two meditation sessions a day, as well as hiking and other traditional camp activities like campfires (with marshmallows!) and singing, and a talent/skit night. At the end of Sun Camp we play a capture-the-flag game where discipline, teamwork, and a sense of humor are an absolute must! Living and practicing together in this way, cooking, eating, working and playing together in a multicultural context, allows campers to get to know themselves, their world, and each other in a unique and genuine way.

Practical

Cadet Command Workshop - August 5-8

The Cadet Command Workshop (CCW) is a three-day intensive training programme for 14 to 16-year-olds who have previously attended Sun Camp. The programme focuses on developing leadership skills that participants will need to help set up, and take care of the environment in which Sun Camp will take place. CCW is a way of preparing the ground before the younger participants arrive. To attend Cadet Command Workshop you must have also attended at least one previous Shambhala Sun Summer Camp and be able to attend Sun Camp afterwards.

Rites of Warriorship - August 15-17

Rites of Warriorship is a two-day programme for 16 year olds, that marks the participant’s entry into adulthood. Although the programme immediately follows Sun Camp, it is a separate programme. The programme officially begins the day Sun Camp ends, but Rites of Warriorship participants who are eligible are strongly encouraged to attend the week long Sun Camp immediately before ROW.

According to the Shambhala tradition, 16 is the age marking the end of childhood and the beginning of adulthood. The Rites of Warriorship is an opportunity for 16 year olds to step directly into this transition. Like the coming-of-age rituals of many societies, the proceedings of the Rites of Warriorship are mostly secret. These activities are an integral part of becoming a compassionate, sane adult, and a genuine warrior in the Shambhala Lineage.
