Connecting With The Qur'an: A Special Young Men's Retreat with Ustadh Nuh Saunders
On October 1-3, 2021, the Lamppost Education Initiative is conducting a unique three-day retreat with 100 young men aged 13-21. The objective of this retreat is to connect our young men to the inimitable Quran. This retreat will take place at beautiful Indian Springs Park in Flovilla, GA, about one hour from Atlanta, Georgia. The retreat will include hiking, self-defense, archery, and unique sessions with Ustadh Nuh Saunders and other Muslim teachers to be announced on how the Qur’an helps develop manhood. This retreat includes lodging and food. This Qur’an retreat is for young men and teenage boys. (Stay tuned to Lamppost for upcoming programs for young women and teenage girls)
Many of our young Muslim men and women suffer in this increasingly polarized society wherein manhood is devalued. As a result, our Muslim children are facing unprecedented challenges to their moral and ethical values. These values are found in the Qur’an. Therefore, we must make every effort to instill the importance of the Qur’an in our children. This retreat promises to be an enriching time for your child with an experienced staff of adults and teachers to ensure a safe and positive experience with nature and the Qur’an. Please stay tuned for more updates and information related to this beautiful event.

About the Venue:
Indian Springs State Park
“Conveniently located near I-75 in middle Georgia, Indian Springs is one of the oldest state parks in the United States and a popular spot for outdoor recreation. For centuries, Creek Indians collected the spring water for its healing qualities, and during the 1800s, the area was a bustling resort town. Today, visitors can still sample the spring water flowing inside the stone Spring House built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression.”
