NEW THIS YEAR for our youngest campers!

Many 3 and 4 year-olds want to join the action but still need a nap mid-day. A half-day option, at a reduced rate, is now available! Campers in this age-group enjoy circle time with Islamic themed finger plays and simple songs, daily crafts (cutting, gluing, painting, etc.), indoor free play (the Waldorf School where the camp is held is replete with natural playthings that stimulate creativity) and a daily snack is provided. 

Campers in this age group who choose to stay the full day will have lunch and a visit as quiet observers at congregational prayer where they learn a bit about prayer etiquette through the modeling of the teachers and older camp participants. These nurturing experiences help strengthen Islamic identity and a sense of community that is so important for healthy development.

HIGHLIGHTS OF CAMP! 

  • Before and after care: You asked and we listened! In order to support working parents, both before and after care are offered -- more time for more fun! 
     
  • Friday Field Day and Festival: Each week of camp will end with a celebratory day.  Campers will come together outdoors to enjoy relays, carnival-style games, popcorn and snow cones!
     
  • Camp-wide sports: Each day of camp ends with a communal time together on the playground, where siblings and friends can reunite through active play...water balloons included!
     
  • Daily snacks: Though students will bring their own bagged lunch, at the end of each day a daily snack of either watermelon or popsicles will be offered. 

CampNWMI is proud to offer our youth the opportunity to gain confidence, learn new skills, strengthen their Islamic identity, and make lasting memories. All are welcome but space is limited so register today!
