VIRGINIA, USA, JUNE 5, 2001: Over 70 individuals attended the 11th annual Hindu Student Council National Camp over Memorial Day weekend. The camp was held at the High Road campsite in Virginia. Students came from universities all over America. Along with sports and nature hikes, the day's activities included yoga and meditation exercises. Interactive discussions gave campers the opportunity to voice their opinion about topics that are relevant to Hindus in our society today. Presenters led discussion on topics ranging from Hindu views on cloning and Vedic mathematics to explaining the Hindu concept of dharma to a non-Hindu and "Is it acceptable to date/marry outside of the Hindu religion?" Evening activities included pujas, bhajanas, interactive skits and a campfire. A cultural show and a garba dance concluded the final evening's program.
