Where can you make the yummiest treats, go on the most amazing field trips, make creative crafts, listen to exciting Islamic lessons, prepare for the most entertaining talent show and meet the coolest friends?
The correct answer is Assunnah Muslim Association's Summer Day Camp. The AMA's first ever day camp took place from July 1-5 at the AMA Mosque on Hunt Club Road. The camp provided a place for kids aged 6-12 to have fun, prepare for Ramadan, and share in exciting adventures with Muslim friends in an Islamic environment. The theme of the camp was “Pray and Play at AMA” so the campers participated in sports and activities, arts and crafts and learned a lot about prayer and its importance in Islam throughout the week. Campers began each day with supplications and Quran recitation, played games together, attended their daily Islamic lesson and made crafts. They also played outdoor sports, learned about gardening by planting flowers, made fruit kebabs and “dirt cup” snacks and enjoyed presentations from different community members.
As it is the custom every year in early July, Abraar School will be welcoming the Muslim Association of Canada's Summer Camp and its young guests. This year, MAC Summer Camp staff are already gearing up for what they hope will be the best camp to date, full of fun activities, lasting memories, and unique and special friendships.
MAC strives to build a lasting bond among Muslim children who will in turn build a stronger community in the future. The association believes that the primary means of achieving its vision is by investing in Muslims and developing Muslim individuals who are spiritually connected, strongly grounded in their own faith, and motivated and enthusiastic through interactive educational activities.
