Parent quotes

Last years camp was very successful and we had some great reviews back from parents

"My children have given very positive feedback about the workshops, which they seemed to get. In addition, as a result of the camp, my daughter and a friend have been contacting each other with alarm calls to pray Fajr Salat, which is a great result from a short weekend camp."

"Snippets of the things covered in the workshops have come out in conversation, and all in all it was a really good experience. I hope it will run again next year, although if it does I may invest in waterproof trousers."

"Thank you very much for your efforts in making this camp a successful one. My son Reza thoroughly enjoyed himself and I am sure more enriched spiritually! Once again, many thanks."

Br Amjad Latif, Br Shahid Chaudhry and Br Munir Ahmed will be the key contacts and responsible for all the children.
