The prosperity of the Sikh community is dependant on its understanding and practice of the Guru’s teachings. Accordingly, Experience Sikhi creates resources, implements creative ideas, and leads initiatives to make Sikhi accessible to all Canadians, regardless of age, location, or level of knowledge.
Experience Sikhi Camp
From its humble beginnings in 2013, ES Camp has grown to become North America’s premiere camping experience. The camp equips participants with the global network of Sangat, the powerful bonds of friendship, and the inspiration that will allow them to enact long lasting change in their hometowns.
It provides a rare opportunity to Experience Sikhi in its many beautiful forms and attracts those that are curious and eager to learn from across the globe. Our campers represent many backgrounds, perspectives, and levels of understanding, but have one thing in common: love for Sikhi.
EXPERIENCE SIKHI SMAGAM
Every summer, Experience Sikhi brings renowned ragi jathey and kathavachiks together from around the globe for 4 days of bliss. Since 2017, we have been honoured to host the likes of Giani Sher Singh Ji (Ambala), Swami Ram Singh Ji (Nirmale), Bhai Niranjan Singh Ji (Javaddi Taksal), Bhai Jujhar Singh Ji (Hazoori Ragi), and Bhai Anantvir Singh Ji (LA). Alongside its morning and evening divans, the Experience Sikhi Samagam is home to interactive displays and daily workshops – check out our SoundCloud and YouTube channels for more!
