We are very happy to announce that Meher Center is planning to host an on-site Youth Sahavas this summer from Monday, July 26th to Saturday, July 31st.
.
Given that major areas around the US are now beginning to gradually open up, we are hopeful that conditions will be suitable for the Youth Sahavas to take place at that time. However, should conditions change, we will have to cancel the event and would be in contact with you. We are looking forward to welcoming young people to Baba’s Home this summer. In addition, we are committed to holding Virtual Youth Sahavas programming and will be following up with more details in the coming weeks.
.
From Monday, July 26 to Saturday, July 31, the Center will be entirely reserved for teens and the Sahavas staff working with them. During the Sahavas, participants stay in Center cabins with experienced counselors, enjoy vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals and snacks, fill their days with art and music, fun and games, beach time and nap time, meaningful discussions, performances, dances and plays – and by His grace, without fail, all is infused with His love.
.
When?
Youth Sahavas 2021 will begin at 2 p.m. on Monday, July 26, and end with departure at 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 31.
.
Who Can Attend?
Youth Sahavas 2021 is designated for young people who have finished 8th grade to those who have just completed their senior year (approximately 14 to 18 years of age). This year, we also invite anyone who graduated high school in 2020 to attend as a participant, given that their last year was virtual due to COVID-19. 2020 graduates may choose instead to be considered as staff and can submit the staff application instead.
.
COVID-19 Precautions
The Youth Sahavas will adhere to the CDC guidelines for overnight camps. Please be assured that safety is our top priority at the Youth Sahavas. We encourage anyone who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to do so at least two weeks prior to Sahavas. This will help us create a safe space for all who attend. We will be sharing more specific details in early June, including requirements about COVID testing prior to and during the event.
.
Registration Process
To register for Youth Sahavas 2021, participants, staff, and parents must fully complete the relevant registration form. As space may be limited, registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. We ask that both participants and staff submit their registration forms by Friday, May 28 to help us plan for the event. We will confirm receiving it, and keep you posted on any developments as we continue to plan for the event. Please read the entire registration form for more important details.
