On June 15, 2002 Azizah reported that "for many Muslim Americans, summer camps are also a seasonal tradition. While some parents may enroll their children in camps with a focus on outdoor activities, a particular sport or art and crafts, an increasing number of parents are seeking out summer camps operated by and for Muslims. Endeavoring to instill Islamic attitudes and values in their children, many parents see these summer camps as non-threatening, fun-filled environments in which to accomplish their objectives."
