Camp Details

Our camp includes 2 daily yoga asana classes, special Children satsang with a short meditation, chanting, storytelling and Yoga Philosophy.  Daily swimming in the pond, participating in outside games and play time, and enjoying trips to the beautiful and refreshing Yuba River.  

We have some new activities added to this year's camp like nature studies, hikes, painting, sketching, and even a drama production with music and costume preparation.  Karma Yoga will be introduced to the campers, including chores around the farm, the garden and our farm animals.  

We also offer a position for Junior Counselors, for campers who have been in our camp before, outgrew camp age and want to come back. Please contact us for more information.

Experienced Sivananda Yoga Teachers have been leading this camp since the 1980ies every summer for youth age 7 - 14. All children will benefit from daily Yoga classes and breathing exercises combined with relaxation. They will get the chance to learn about and practice mediation, the value of Karma Yoga ( selfless service ) and have their own children's satsang with lots of singing and inspiring stories. There will also be plenty of time for swimming, fun and games, and special activities outside the Yoga Farm.

The camp is an uplifting environment and ideal to create a foundation for your child's peaceful and healthy development.
