Children’s Activities at TMBCC
Summer Camps at the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center
In keeping with our mission to help preserve both the Tibetan and Mongolian cultures, the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center facilitates Summer Camps for the children of Tibetan and Mongolian refugees who are now living in the United States.
- To expose Mongolian and Tibetan youngsters to their culture and language, and also to the essence of Buddhism.
- To bring Mongolian and Tibetan youngsters closer to the values of Mongolian/Tibetan culture and to create in them a sense of belonging
- To create an environment for Mongolian and Tibetan youngsters from different parts of North America to develop friendship among them and widen their network
- To create conditions for Mongolian and Tibetan youngsters to develop a sense of pride in their Mongolian/Tibetan identity
Information about 2013 camps will be posted after the first of the year.
