The Libyan Social Camp; A Great Success

The Libyan Social Camp, held on August 24th - 26th, was a great success, alhamdullilah. It was attended by 187 people, who enjoyed a relaxing weekend meeting other Libyan families, many of whom came from very far to attend.

The purpose of the camp was to strengthen the bonds within the Libyan community, especially among the youth, and to help them get a sense of their Libyan identity, despite being raised in this country [U.S.]. Everyone's cooperation made this year's camp truly remarkable.

We would like to extend a special thanks to the sisters who worked so hard to prepare for us our favorite Libyan foods, such as 'osban, couscous, 'aseeda, bazeen, and homemade bread.

The campers enjoyed a weekend full of boating, swimming, basketball, volleyball, hiking, sitting around the campfire, and discussions at the beautiful Ohio campsite. We all felt a sense of pride in what a treasure our Libyan community is. Jazakum Allahu Khayran to everyone who attended and was a part of this year's wonderful camp.

Next year's camp, insha'Allah, will be on August 23rd-25th. Please mark it on your calanders!

Wassallamu aliekum.

On behalf of all the organizers,
Massaud Salem
