At Muslim Youth Camp, we have a broad definition of "youth." No one is too young or too old to attend, and we encourage whole families to experience an MYC week together, each finding their own "inner youth." When families arrive at MYC together, each family member can find camaraderie with campers of his or her own peer group -- whether in the craft cabin with other 7-year-olds, or in postgraduate classes with other parents.
We place a unique emphasis on counseling. Many former campers have commented that it was an MYC counselor who answered an embarrassing question or offered that bit of support crucial to their young, developing Muslim identity.
MYC is also known for bringing together young Muslims from not only all over the United States and Canada, but the entire world. An MYC camper is just as likely to make a new friend who lives just across town as one who lives halfway across the globe.
What you take away from a week at MYC depends upon what you put into it. Most campers find that the most lasting rewards of an MYC week are the friendships they find there. The teamwork and trust which keeps MYC running creates relationships which are cultivated over many years. Friendships built here do not break easily.
