Specialized programs are offered for Muslim children at a summer camp in Calgary. The camp has a mission to merge Canada’s values and Islamic values in a peaceful way. Most children think the two are separate and have a hard time finding the balance between them. Parents like the balance, as seen in the attendance at the camp. Last year, 40 kids attended the camp, but this year it has increased to 70. The interest continues to increase. If you are interested in immigration to Canada, contact Canadian Visa Professionals. Their team of immigration specialists will walk you through the steps to obtain the required visa to live and work in Canada.
The Muslim Association of Canada operates the camp that is divided by summer camp activities and more religious and culture training. Kids visit Heritage Park and the Calgary Corn Maze, guest speakers cover topics about indigenous issues and the environment, and they study the Qur’an. One worker said the balance is important, because immigrants crave identity. Most of the children in attendance are children of immigrants. They want to explore what it means to be a Canadian citizen and be a part of the society yet respect their own culture and religion. It is essential to not push Islam on them, but let them learn how to balance religion and culture.
