About the Event
LAO UNY welcomes Lao Heritage Foundation to our community all the way from Washington DC!
Your support and dedication to the programs we bring to the community are vital to the growth of our organization and to the development of our community. Choosing to support our Lao Heritage Foundation Summer Camp that will be hosted at Wat Pa Lao Buddhadham will help to encourage others to become more engaged in creating impact together and helping to make a difference in our greater community. We hope that the camp will inspire the campers to embrace the beauty of diversity, heritage, and culture. We hope that the experience will leave participants with more knowledgeable and confidence when speaking about the cultural heritage and encourage them to share it with others.
Our day camp will be hosted starting Thursday August 11th, 2022 at 9am through 4pm daily through Sunday, August 14th. This year's program will focus primarily on Lao music and will be headed by Xai Souphom , President of Lao Heritage Foundation with the assistance of Ajarn Noh from Luang Prabang's LHF Instructor Exchange Program.
Our day will open up with a morning assembly. This will allow everyone to become acquainted with one another and familiar with the day's activities upon everyone's arrival prior to going into the scheduled program. The day will then be broken into Learning Session, have scheduled breaks, lunch (provided), include a daily cultural workshop, and a closure at the end of each day to recap what was learned and allow for reflection & discussions.
Our Last day of camp will conclude with a morning recital, morning service at the temple (optional), followed up by a community Potluck Picnic, Cornhole Tournament, and a Family Field day filled with team building and competitions.
