Guru Harkrishan Institute of Sikh Studies (GHISS) has been making efforts from the past 12 years of it's existence to expose the new Sikh generations of the western world to the principles and values of Sikhism. The need has now been felt to address the older youth which have none or minimal venues of interaction and communication. This retreat is an endeavor to create a Sikh environment for spiritual uplifting and also to provide a platform for the older youth to communicate and discuss various Sikh issues.

This retreat is ideal for those who have chosen Sikhism to be their path of life and are now desirous to learn more about this path, while sharing their understanding of the Guru's teachings and principles with others.
