South Korea has one of the highest educational fervor in the world; and due to this, students’ academic achievement is top-rated among OECD nations. However, their social interaction, happiness index, regard for others as well as ability to work with others were all rated at bottom-levels as the true value of education had become de-emphasized. This study examined the effects of a Mind Subtraction Meditation youth camp on self control, consideration-communication and community spirit of participants. The camp consisted of a 7-day overnight stay program held at the J Youth Training Center in N-city. Study participants were 327 students comprised of 192 elementary and 135 middle school students who attended the camp. Data were collected via self-reported questionnaires and analyzed using a paired t-test with SPSS 24.0. The results showed that self control, consideration-communication, and community spirit among elementary and middle school students were significantly increased after participating in the camp. This was significant because the result demonstrated symmetrical enhancement effects of meditation-based youth camp on self control for proper self-development, as well as consideration-communication and community spirit which are necessary virtues as members of a society.
