Camp Aspire is an initiative undertaken by Madrasah Az-Zahraa to create a space for Muslim youth to further grow in life and be exposed to Islamic living outside the classroom and Masjid settings. Open to all the youth of our communities, we hope to engage students at the high school level. Named Camp Aspire, we wish to give students a breath of fresh air, and to help them reach where we know they can grow to.
Realizing that the classroom is not enough to give our youth a complete Islamic upbringing, Camp Aspire is an extension of Madrasah Az-Zahraa’s learning environment. We have capitalized on our dynamic teachers and community members to create a camp with a dramatically smaller student to guide ratio. This allows us to connect with our youth more closely and build a sense of trust and mutual respect that will revitalize their love of Islam. We hope our team of Organizers and Counsellors will be able to be lifelong mentors for youth as they struggle to find themselves and look to others for inspiration.
Camp Aspire is an Islamic summer camp and hopes to infuse Islam into our way of life rather than through just direct instruction. Our workshops and activities are designed to integrate Islamic teachings into the lives of our students using the life experiences of our team.
“O you who carry knowledge around with you; are you only carrying it around with you ? For surely knowledge belongs to who ever knows and then acts accordingly, so that his action corresponds to his knowledge. There will be a people who will carry knowledge around with them, but it will not pass beyond their shoulders. Their inner most thoughts will contradict what they display in public, and their actions will contradict what they know.” ~ An extract of Du’a Kumail
