Description of the Tour
Kishori Yatra girls’ tour is an all-inclusive, spiritual adventure tour bringing girls, ages 11-16, to different temples and communities around North America during the summer. It focuses on developing vaisnava qualities, visiting holy places, building friendships, and providing a framework for loving devotional service to be performed. The girls engage in service opportunities at the temples they visit and give the temples their expression of bhakti through a devotional arts presentation. They also engage in adventure activities such as camping, recreational games, and occasionally visit theme parks.
