Gurmat Gian Sardari Camp would be focusing on youth development. Participants would have an opportunity to learn various skills and platform to serve as sewadars.

One unique feature of the camp is the participants would be actively involved and self participate throughout the three night camp. Participants will come from all over Peninsular Malaysia. Each region will be given a time to prepare and execute the program that they would like to carry out based on their idea.

The camp would focus on two key elements. First, Gurmat Gian (Knowledge). Here, participants would present their understanding and share knowledge on a particular topic. They would  have autonomy on how to deliver the topic and the activities that would be carried out. The chosen topic for this year: Sikhi Values.

The activities will be observed by senior sewadars and experts in the fields as well as the participants from other region. The observers will provide feedback for improvement.

The seniors will also provide input to participants on the various do and don’ts, method of facilitating an event, tips for effective delivery and other areas. Participant would also self assess their performance to see how they could perform better.

The second key element of the camp would be Sardari (leadership). This would be manifested through active participation even before the camp. Each region would have a representative who will lead recruitment. Later, the team will brainstorm to produce ideas for the activities that would be carried out by their region. During the camp, participants would be exposed to the essentials of leadership and how they can serve as leaders based on concepts of lead self, lead others and lead incentives.

At the end of the program, the participants would come up with action plans that would be discussed and shared with everyone. This would lead to incentives on all level and participants could serve as key role player as leaders in their region to eventually produce programs “By the Youth, For the Youth”.

This camp would be a platform for the youth to discover their self, actualise their potentials and serve as the leaders (sewadars)  for the next generation. This camp intends to start a chain reaction in preserving Sikhi. It is initiated by the youth, working parallel with community, for a greater tomorrow. – By Pardip Singh (one of the organisers of the camp)
