In 2005 I went to Sikhi camp. Prior to this, I was born into a Sikh family but knew little of Sikh tenets and history. No one in my family was a practising Sikh.
I still remember when I first got on to the coach from Southall to the camp site in 2005, I had short hair and didn’t even have a kara. I spent the rest of the journey worrying about if I would get told off for not having a kara! Contrary to my presumptions, when I got to the camp, I was surrounded by love and positivity.
The camp was my first immersion in the message of the Guru. It was a life changing experience and something which I would recommend to anyone who hasn’t been before. See you there!
