Recently, the fourth annual Camp Unity, held on the outskirts of Borehamwood at Well End Scout Activity Centre, had another successful gathering. The popular event allows area children and their families to experience other cultures, foster friendships, strengthen community bonds, and serves as a springboard for celebrating diversity. Hosted by a team of multi-faith leaders, this year saw the largest registration of campers, with 48 children participating from various religious and cultural backgrounds.

Among this year’s team members was Radha Mohan Das from Bhaktivedanta Manor. This is his third year participating in the inspiring initiative along with Jewish, Muslim, and various Christian denominations.  Each spiritual tradition was invited to share a story and a song with attendees. “My story was about how and why I joined ISKCON. The song I shared was about a person’s spiritual journey that I wrote and performed 30 years ago, just before I left my band and moved into a temple.”

Campers were provided three vegetarian, nut-free (Kosher/Halal) meals daily and enjoyed various fun and engaging activities like crafts, archery, wall climbing, and more. 

Local leaders, appreciative of the initiative, were among the invited guests, including the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, Mrs. M.E. Green, Worshipful Mayor of Hertsmere Borough, Deputy Mayor of Elstree, the Borehamwood Town Council, Borough, and Town Councillors, as well as the Honourable Alderman Rabbi Alan Plancey.
