Buddhist Summer Camps For Children
Mandala on the Mountain Dharma Summer Camp
Dharma Rain Zen Center, Portland, OR, (503) 239-4846. August 20-24.
For ages 9 to 13, this camp aims to help kids work on their self-identity within the group and also to cultivate virtue—without forgetting to have lots of fun. The daily activities are a combination of work, play, and practice. In addition to sports, crafts, and other summer camp fun, the kids meditate, chant, and receive age-appropriate dharma teaching. On the last day of camp, the children present to their parents a skit based on what they learned at camp.
