Avicenna Academy is launching its first summer camp after the COVID-19 Pandemic

In Winnipeg, there are lots of summer camps that happen every year for educational and fun purposes. Every summer camp is different, and each camp has its own unique activities and themes.

Many parents have difficulty deciding which camp would fit their children’s energy levels and interests. This year, with more camps reopening and being hosted after a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some parents are also anxious and cautious. 

“I want to feel assured to send my daughters to a safe camp, that they will be able to enjoy and, of course, learn valuable things.” said a parent of two of the children involved in a summer camp hosted by Avicenna Academy. 

Avicenna Academy was created for the Muslim community in Winnipeg that consists of an Islamic childcare centre and an elementary school. This academy cooperates with the Province of Manitoba Learning and Child Care’s regulations and is the foremost Islamic Nursery School in Manitoba. 

This year the Avicenna Academy has its first-ever summer camp after the Covid-19 pandemic that hindered its activities for two years, starting in 2020. The academy is coming back with solid ideas and excellent planning for their summer camp that is going to be launching today. Avicenna Academy is taking precautions to keep all children safe because of the full opening that is going to be happening. 

After interviewing Avicenna Summer Camp leader, Noor Alhamed, about the precautions taken for safety, she said that “We are keeping the exact safety measures that were taken during the pandemic, such as sanitizing and washing hands regularly, we are also keeping a safe distance between the children, but not as far as two metres. We are so happy to have the children back, and we want them to stay healthy while doing all the planned activities.”

After the Covid-19 pandemic, everything is slowly returning to how it was before, but for some, it is still too early to go back fully to how it once was and camps like the Avicenna Summer Camp are accommodating such uncertainties.
