Often, parents of high school students approach us with one prudent concern - what can I do to ensure that my child stays connected with Chinmaya Mission even after high school?
One upcoming opportunity is this JCHYK camp. Led by an experienced team of volunteers, this camp is a safe, open forum for your high schooler to learn more about themselves and their religion. We have several JCHYKS registered and will have transportation from Austin to Mangalam.
RJCC will not just provide your child with some respite in the middle of a busy semester. It will inspire them to pursue their goals with renewed energy and clarity.
