Dharma Camp - Portland, OR
Mandala on the Mountain is a weeklong summer camp for kids aged nine through eighteen who are interested in Buddhism. Campers come from a variety of traditions and levels of familiarity with Buddhism, but are willing to try it out. Most of the forms we use derive from Soto Zen, but we include teachings from different schools of Buddhism.

About Buddhist Summer Camps

Camp Lets Boys Embrace Buddha
"Candles, incense holders and a 3-foot shrine holding a gold Buddha sit on a wooden table next to six monks who are chanting and clasping their hands in prayer. Next to them sit three young boys, clad in bright orange robes, trying to emulate the monks by mouthing some of the chants. But not for long. Two boys start kicking each other, while the other leans back and starts sipping fruit juice. It's summer camp — Buddhist style."
