The Famous SYA Summer Camp
SYA has successful run annual summer youth camps since 1999. Now in its 22nd year running the SYA summer youth camp is an opportunity to make new friends and have fun, while also having the ability to immerse in knowledge and understanding of Sikhism.
By the end of camp each participant, no matter how young or old, will leave with at least one thing they didn't have before they arrived, whether they have learnt something new, created a new friendship or discovered something about themselves!
