Camp: Day 1

Yesterday was the day we’ve been anticipating and preparing for with great excitement for so many months: the first day of Al-Bustan Camp! We will be posting photos from Camp so join us on the blog for the next three weeks as we explore the arts and culture of Lebanon.

Mary, our science teacher, introduces Group Ba’ (the second letter in the Arabic alphabet) to plants that are native to Lebanon including grapes, olives, and oranges.

Campers also learned the geography and topography of Lebanese in Science class.

Group Alif (the first letter in the Arabic alphabet) gets their first percussion lesson from Hafez who says, “The kids are having fun: they’re learning, they’re asking good questions, and they’re already using their Arabic.”

Brahim, our Arabic instructor, introduces Group Ba’ to the first two letters of the Arabic alphabet.



Group Ba’ began Art Class by exploring lines and mark-making using an array of tools including string, straws, sticks, and brushes.
