With programs for people of all ages, Chinmaya Mission starts working with its youngest participants through Bala Vihar, which unites youth in the five-to-15-year age range for weekly classes. Trained educators meet with the youth at private homes or at Chinmaya Mission centers for fun activities that help them develop values and grow individually. During Bala Vihar, Chinmaya Mission utilizes a diverse curriculum to facilitate children’s emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and physical development.
In conjunction with Bala Vihar, Chinmaya Mission hosts both non-residential and residential camps for children around the world. The two-day to three-week camps are designed for specific age groups and take place during school holidays and weekends. Intended to foster leadership and friendship, the camps feature thought-provoking themes and entertaining activities. Children enjoy a wide range of programs, including creative workshops, Vedanta classes, and yoga.
