The camp combines the discipline of yoga and the fun of camp. The program allows children to understand the principles of vegetarianism, respect for all religions, develop a love and respect for nature. Children are able to identify with the inner self within a group setting by practicing yoga.

It is a truly unique camp that unites the summer camp experience with the practice of yoga. This program is aimed specifically for children ages 9-12.

Established in 1972 by Swami Vishnudevananda, the Kids' Camp combines activities of outdoor adventure, creativity, yoga and cooperation.

The children learn and evolve through the practice of Swami Vishnudevananda's five principles of yoga:
  • Proper exercise

  • Proper breathing

  • Proper relaxation

  • Proper diet

  • Positive thinking and meditation

Daily yoga and breathing exercises combined with the practice of meditation keep the body healthy and flexible and the mind focused.

Morning and evening satsangs are adjusted for kids and consist of simple meditation practice,followed by singing and inspiring stories.

The children also learn the value of karma yoga, or selfless service, as they help to maintain activity areas and participate in various projects.

There is plenty of time for fun and games, all with the same goal of fostering the qualities of cooperation, respect and friendship.

Special activities outside the resort include horse riding, excursion tour etc.

As children come from all over the world, with a variety of cultural backgrounds, they learn to appreciate and respect people of all religions while practising yoga.
Counsellors are carefully selected by the director of the Camp. Most of them have completed the Sivananda Yoga Teachers Training Course and all are volunteering to share their time, energy and yogic lifestyle with the children.

PhuChaisai resort is set in on a gradually sloping hill surrounded by ChaingRai's untouched vegetation and has emerged as a leading eco-friendly accommodation, offering guests a much-needed break from the confines of city.

The resort aims to be an environmentally-friendly and self-sufficient and has gone beyond the green concept starting from design, construction, and interior decor to even having a green lifestyle of cultivating a tea plantation, gardening, herbs and fruit farm for their own cuisine selection.
