This year’s camp theme is “The Silk Road: Deserts, Beaches, and Skyscrapers of the Arab World” with an emphasis on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). Children will bring the Silk Road of the 10th-15th centuries back to life with STEM and arts projects, songs, games, drama, and more. 

A project-based, hands-on, Arabic immersion summer camp that combines science, arts, culture, history, outdoor play, field trips, guest speakers, and much more is just the right balance between fun, learning, and language practice. Four weeks of creating and Arabic speaking will boost your child's language abilities and confidence just as a trip aborad would.
