2019 KARMA YOGA SIGN-UP

Dear Campers,

Congratulations on choosing to attend Northwest Sufi Camp 2019, and welcome!.

“Using the stuff that makes up your daily life as the vehicle for coming to Union is called KARMA YOGA.” – Ram Dass, Be Here Now

Each camper contributes about 2 hours in the week in a variety of available ways including helping with our kids/tweens, wiping down tables and sweeping the floor, assisting Earth Plane and other tasks. The group camaraderie can make Karma Yoga one of the most enriching aspects of the entire camp experience. 

Early Sign-Up for Karma Yoga streamlines the process of settling into camp. Early Sign-up is not required, however. You may sign up for Karma Yoga at the start of camp, although your choices will be more limited.

Questions:  Contact Matin at KY2019@nwsuficamp.org.

1) Read the schedule below, and choose a FIRST, SECOND, and THIRD choice.  This page will be revised daily with remaining available shifts.

2) E-mail your top THREE choices to KY2019@nwsuficamp.org,
a) Copy the entire line for the shift you want
b) Include the number code of the shift (see examples below showing the numbers 22, 3, 50).

Example:
First choice: 22 – Friday 2-4pm – At camp (1 position)
Second choice: 3 – Monday 10am-12pm – At camp (3 positions)
Third choice: 50 – Tuesday 11:30am-1:30pm (1 position)

3) Look for a confirmation e-mail within 1-2 days of your request. We will do our best to provide the shifts you request.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE CHOOSING YOUR KARMA YOGA

  1. The camp class schedule is posted online. Please make sure your karma yoga choices do not conflict with classes you most want to attend. See the CAMP SCHEDULE
  2. All able-bodied campers age 15-69 are requested to register for Karma Yoga.

Thanks for your participation in helping to make camp a smooth and fulfilling experience for us all!
