Youth Angels Day Camp
Experience the Art of Meditation

Science of Spirituality, Minnesota has been organizing Youth Angels Day Camp since last five years in Minneapolis for children under the age group of 5 to 15 years.. It was originally envisioned to make great use of winter time and introduce meditation to the children for their peace of mind. It’s a one day camp where children learn meditation techniques, yoga and engage in fun filled activities & story time which helps in character building. By learning how to calm the mind with meditation practice and simple moves of yoga, children can be happier and healthier.

At the camp, children will learn to meditate and develop the inner strength, achieve balance and realize the true potential in their lives, all in a fun filled environment.
During the camp, we will have Meditation workshops, YogaCamp Songs, Activities, GaMes & Pizza.
