Camp Busy Bees Summer Propgram (Summer 2019)

Salihah Central is excited to announce that registration for the Weekend Bees Sunday School
is now open for the 2018-2019 academic year!


Featuring a well-rounded Islamic Studies curriculum and progressive teaching methods, this program is designed for Muslim youth entering Pre-K through 8th grades. Field trips, projects, and healthy engagement with peers bring the curriculum to life and leave students with a strong Muslim identity. Our curriculum includes Quranic memorization, Arabic, Islamic history, Hadith, and Sunnah.


Weekend Bees classes are held on Sundays from 10:00am to 1:00pm at IQRA International Educational Foundation located at 7450 Skokie Blvd, Skokie, IL 60077. Classes begin in September and generally follow the regular school calendar. The fee for the full academic year is $400 per child. All student fees are used to pay for the space, materials and supplies needed to run the Weekend Bees program. Salihah Central subsidizes the costs of the program as needed and does not make any profit from student fees.

What Some People Say About Our Program:

Testimonials

  • I am a huge fan of Camp Busy Bees. My daughter Sara went for 2 years. And this year Insha-Allah I am looking forward to enroll my younger daughter Zaynab too. I was very impressed with the program and the entire staff. They were organized, professional, kind, respectful, nurturing and engaging. Overall it is an excellent program and a wonderful experience for my daughter. It gives her the opportunity to learn a variety of things in an Islamic environment. She thoroughly enjoyed the entire program and one of her favorite was the field trip to a food market and recycle store (going green). It is indeed great having such a stress-free environment in which girls do not have to feel the pressure of performing to someone else’s standards. And may Allah bless you all for all your hard work and for having touched so many lives at Camp Busy Bee. See you again Insha-Allah at Camp Busy Bee 2011.

  • This letter is to inform you how productive Camp Busy-Bee was for my daughter Safa Abdur Rehman. Safa has been attending the camp for many years. She and I look forward to it each year. Knowledge is provided in a beautiful manner that all ages benefit from. The teachers are very nice and well experienced. We are once again looking forward to this summer’s camp. I also feel that the young youth needs to have a good strong muslim community that will grow with them. Camp Busy-Bee I feel has that leadership that can guide many girls on the right path.
