During the week of August 10, over 170 Sikh youth from ages of 5-20 gathered at Gurdwara Vermont to attend the 10th annual Camp Gian, which is a Sikh camp dedicated to promoting the Sikh way of life and strengthening Sikh morals and teachings. This year's Camp Gian theme was "Love is the path".

The children explored this theme further by learning about the life of Guru Gobind Singh Ji and exploring the meaning of the theme shabad "Jin Prem Kio Tin Hee Prabh Paeyo". During the course of five days, the children woke up at dawn to attend Morning Diwan, which was characterized by the recitation of Nitnem and Simran. An act from a play that characterized the life of Guru Gobind Singh Ji was performed for all of the campers to enjoy. The play was written and performed solely by the youth of this camp.
