We offer entertaining activities during the spring of every year. We have Spring Olympics for kids. We conduct a FOOD DRIVE and encourage the children to shop with their families for non-perishable, canned food to donate to the Tri-State Food Bank.
During the summertime, we conduct many children's programs including a daytime summer camp for kids. During the 4-week summer camp, we teach Islamic Studies in addition to lessons from the Quran. We have designated nights reserved for indoor youth group camping, in which the youth convene at Isha prayer and stay until after Fajr prayer. As always, the annual summer picnic is another great event highly anticipated by children of all ages (and adults!), complete with fun inflatables and an extensive outdoor BBQ lunch!
Every fall, our community's older children participate in our annual International Food Festival on the first Sunday of every October. A portion of the proceeds from the IFF are donated to support the Tri-State Food Bank. Our 2020 IFF will be our 19th annual. Every year, we are so thrilled to welcome people from all different faiths to enjoy our hospitality and diverse cuisine. We have a variety of food and different cultural presentations. The IFF includes a bazaar of calligraphy, henna, global fashion and art, and we also conduct guided tours of the Islamic Center for anyone who would like to take a look inside the beautiful interior.
Due to the limited amount of time off from school and the busy travel schedule of many families during winter break, we usually have just a few activities planned based on the availability of local instructors.
