BYA 2024 
Camps & Retreats
At our camp center, a variety of fun and meaningful activities are thoughtfully designed and crafted specifically for families with children, teens, and young adults throughout the year with a focus on improving social-emotional learning (SEL) and emotional intelligence (EQ) through the practice of meditation, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques to take care of oneself holistically! 
Our camp is now officially resided in the newest America's National Monument of the San Gabriel Mountain at 6,500-ft in elevation yielding beautiful snow-covered winter as well as cool and shady summer with cabin accommodations, several large meeting rooms, and many amenities.


In honor of the Memorial Day holiday, BYA would like to extend our gratitude to our military/veteran families by offering three (3) full BYA Youth Camp 2024 Scholarships for their children to attend our upcoming teens or kids camp this July at no cost. 
In that same spirit of appreciation to parents and community, we'd also like to offer special discount of $100 reduced fee for both teens and kids camps of veteran families.
Thanks to many volunteers in the community, we are able to keep costs down to offer these beneficial youth camp services at such low rates for many youth families!
Winter Family Retreat: to be offered in 2025
A retreat on MLK or President Holiday weekend is designed for children, teens, young adults, and their parents with various activities including snow bubbling, sledding/skiing, zen-archery, self-reflection through the beauty and purity of nature, and more; all with a focus on cultivating family values and inner peace.
A week-long camp for teens (up to 18) and tween/young teens (12-14) to learn mindful self-leadership skills for developing emotional intelligence (EQ) through various activities including challenge courses, leadership workshops, and life-balancing choices, stress coping and management techniques. Our main focus is to enable teens to mindfully develop and navigate through social pressure while maintaining strong roots and unfolding their positive potential.
A five-day overnight joyful camp for children (9 to 12) to have fun while enjoying beneficial and educational activities. Any 8-year old must have siblings or accompanied by a parent. Our main focus is to nurture kids and inspire their innate seeds of compassion and kindness. This is where they can blossom to be the best of themselves in a safe and nurturing environment. 
Quarterly Family Day: TBA
Every now and then, we offer a family retreat or day of mindfulness along with our staff training day so parents can have a chance to practice together while their children learn more about dharma and recitation of the Five Mindfulness Trainings. This is also a chance for your family to get away from the city routine to enjoy the peace and beauty of our wonderful mountain nature!
