What is ilmscape?
Ilmscape's vision is to revolutionize the way Muslim youth and family camps are organized. By bringing authentic Islamic knowledge, team building activities and the great outdoors together, our ilmscapers have an experience of a lifetime. Essentially it's a FUN Knowledge ESCAPE..
who is it for?
We feel that the modern world has distanced us from nature's beauty. We provide every ilmscaper with a safe environment away from distractions to focus on bettering themselves by becoming better Muslims and better versions of themselves. Families that want to get out of their normal routine and do activities together benefit from ilmscape the most. Brothers and sisters 10 and up really enjoy their time at ilmscape, in the past we have allowed younger kids to join under the supervision of their parents.
What makes ilmscape Special?
ilmscape is more than just your average Muslim youth camp. It is an environment where you will learn, have fun, build friendships and get connected to your creator. We empower youth and help them FEEL Muslim while enjoying healthy meals, campfires, hikes, praying together, Quran recitation sessions, poetry contests, movies, team building activities and much more packed into a weekend.
