    Misl Richmond: Jakara Juniors

    When I started at Jakara there years ago, I remember listing out some of my goals:  where in California could we formalize misls?  Where would we hold Lalkaar in the coming years?  Never, did I think that in 2014 we would be having Jakara 'firsts' in a whole other state (not to mention the opposite coast!).  Our first multi-day Jakara Juniors camp was held in Richmond, Virginia.  The sangat and volunteers were unconditionally welcoming, and ready to work hard for their community.  I spent three days with local volunteers working through a camp that focused on healthy choices, sangat, Sikh heros & sheroes, Gubani, and lots of fun activities.  Each of the facilitators and volunteers were committed to providing for these young participants a space to learn about themselves and each other.  From the local families that donated food, to those that made sure we had enough bananas for Roshni's relay games, to Baltej hauling wheel barrows full of soil for the new garden - everyone worked together to make this camp a success.
