Survival Camp USA, 2012 poster
Survival Camp USA, sponsored by Miri Piri Academy, is an action-packed week of mountain living, hiking, and paintball wars under the stars of Guru Ram Das Puri.
In 1989, Yogi Bhajan started a unique youth camp in the mountains of New Mexico. With the conviction that teenagers need to be challenged as well as guided, and they need to test their limits as much as be given limits, he sent us to Guru Ram Das Puri for a rough and tough week we affectionately called “Survival Camp.” The name stuck, and more than twenty years later we are still hearing stories of excitement and adventure that have endured through time.
