Camp: Day 2

Here are some photos from our second day of classes at Al-Bustan Camp!

The camp is located at Springside School, which borders the Wissahickon Valley Park–the perfect place for a nature walk during Science Class.

During Dance Class, Group Alif enjoyed dancing to some Lebanese Debke.


Tremain, our Art instructor, starts off class by reading from Noojoom. This book was published by Dar Onboz, a publishing house established by Nadine Touma in 2006 in Beirut, Lebanon. We are integrating Dar Onboz books into all of our classes this summer.


Campers in Group Ba’ tried out printmaking, looking at the horizontal lines in Cedar trees, a tree found all over Lebanon, for inspiration.
