What is Maktabatee?
Marhaba! And welcome to the Maktabatee community! Maktabatee means "my bookstore" in Arabic, and was founded with a simple objective: to hand-select high-quality, engaging, and relevant Arabic books and goods for children and beginners. Through our curated collection of educational Arabic materials, we are dedicated to helping you raise multilingual kids who love reading and engaging with this beautiful language. Look around, and let us know how we can help in your journey to learn or teach Arabic!
Wouldn't it be amazing if we could get the whole summer off and travel abroad to give our kids an immersive cultural and linguistic experience? If only that was an accessible option for most of us! From juggling work schedules to being able to afford international travel, many obstacles stand in the way of such experiences.
Some of these camps are more Arabic-focused than others, but everyone on this list has at a minimum an Arabic language component. We tried to only include those who had updated information for 2019 camps and had an updated link or flyer. So, if you’re looking for an Arabic summer camp for this year, check these out! If you have others to add, please comment below and let us know or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to add to the list. Happy camping!
