GLA Durham Summer Camp

GLA Durham Summer Camp

Our GLA STREAM Summer Camp is a fun, engaging, and educational experience for kids aged 4-12. Using STREAM principles (science, technology, religion, engineering, art, and math), the 7 week camp is designed with weekly themes such as physics, environmental awareness, chemistry, biology and more. Every week is packed with activities tailored for each age group and specifically designed to develop children’s critical thinking and experimental skills. Each week, campers will be taken on an excursion related to that weeks theme. The camp incorporates Islamic teachings into all of its activities and our vibrant and motivated staff ensure a welcoming environment for all campers.
