International Family Camp in Russia

Fifty-eight people, including 17 visitors, from two regions of Russia and Uzbekistan, took part in a family camp in late July in the beautiful and picturesque area of Gorny Altai, on the banks of the Katun River. The camp, themed “Peace in the Heart Is Peace in the World,” served to inspire and unite the participants. Four SSIO educators and one trainee presented lessons on human values for children in three age groups. Each day, the children also participated in activities based on different themes. On Guru Poornima day, the attendees took part in a wonderful concert dedicated to their teacher, Sathya Sai Baba. On the final day, children and adults presented another concert, showcasing their talent and creativity. The children participated in a dramatization of the fairy tale “Moydodyr,” extolling the importance of external and internal purity.
