An Annual Libyan Retreat
Join us for Amal Camp 2022
ABOUT AMAL CAMP
Amal Camp, an Annual Libyan Retreat, is a weekend getaway held on a beautiful lakeshore in Ohio. Located in a scenic grove, we are dedicated to providing a relaxing weekend for Libyans in the United States to meet and reunite with family and friends. Every year, we incorporate fun evening games, outdoor activities, and more.
who We Are
Amal Camp started in 1995 as a getaway weekend for a few Libyan families. Since then, it has grown in both size and significance. Amal Camp is now an opportunity to build and strengthen relationships within the Libyan American community. Our camp provides wholesome and inclusive activities in a tranquil and natural setting. We have no rigid business structure or membership; Anyone who desires a good time with good people are welcome to register and attend our once-per-year event.
what to expect
We like to keep our registrants as busy as they’d like to be, so we offer a range of activities available (but not required) to all. From sporting to water activities to relaxing in the evening, we truly take a “something for everyone” approach. Each year, our visitors can choose to participate in any of the following:
what to bring
Depending on what activities you’re planning on participating in, different equipment is needed. All of our campers are recommended to bring the “Essential items,” but choose the appropriate “optional items” depending on your activity level. The campsite has men’s and women’s cabins equipped with twin-size bunk beds and full service bathrooms.
ESSENTIAL ITEMS TO BRING
- Bed Sheets
- Personal/Toiletry Items (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc.)
- Comfortable Clothing & Shoes (sports, bathroom and hiking shoes)
OPTIONAL ITEMS TO BRING
