On August 3, 2002 The Dallas Morning News reported on the summer camp for youth at the Vajradakini Buddhist Center in Irving, Texas. "During the week, the children studied an ancient Eastern religion through meditation, teachings, chanted prayers, art and drama... Most of the students have at least one Buddhist parent... The Vajradakini center holds meditation sessions daily but didn't offer a children's meditation camp until last summer... Leaders now plan to offer the camp annually. They would like to offer a similar but more extensive program for high school students next summer."
