“As an 11 year public school teacher in Philadelphia, I witnessed true transformation of students aged 7-13 at Indraloka’s Earth Camp. I saw a student with hyperactivity sit for 2 hours completely focused on painting the resident peacock. After learning the sanctuary’s definition of compassion, a student carried a chair for another with a leg cast so they could sit during parts of the nature hike. Several souls brightened when chickens and cats sat together on their laps to enjoy cuddle time. Storyboards and journaling activities rendered concepts of kindness toward all, mindfulness and a true love for their time with the animals. The depth and breadth of social emotional and communicative growth I witnessed was astounding.”
"My daughter has never had friends. She struggles to find happiness and to speak with me openly. During camp, she glowed and talked non stop the entire way to and from Indraloka about new friends, animals, and events each day. Thank you."
“The kids looked forward to coming back every day. This was an incredible experience. The animals were kind and gentle, and the instructors were, too.”
“Camp just ended yesterday and both of my kids already asked if they could go again!”
