This year Al-Bustan camp was a very fun and interesting experience. We got to meet new people. We even had the chance to email teens from Lebanon and create friendships while learning about their culture.
In the film class, we are working on a great video about stereotypes and discrimination. In these three weeks, we have learned a lot of Arabic, probably a year’s worth. In art class, we created an art piece based on change over time. In poetry class, we got to go inside our artwork and find the emotion and the story that we created in Tremaine’s art class. During video class, we traveled to Center City and interviewed people about their thoughts on stereotypes and discrimination. It’s very interesting to hear how different people feel about real-world situations. In video class, we also had the opportunity to create our own plays, and act in them. I think kids who will attend Al-Bustan Camp in the future will benefit from this learning experience. Al-Bustan staff members motivate you to do better and have fun while learning.
