2018 Retreat 2018-06-11T16:00:15+00:00

AL-HUJJAH 2018 RETREAT

Last year, we introduced the Awaken Retreat – three days of engaging activities, workshops, and interactive trainings to bring attendees toward a state of awakening. We promised to facilitate continued growth through a tier two retreat – Reflection – a small intimate group retreat aimed at advancing spiritual and intellectual progress alongside esteemed scholars and mentors.

This year, we have improved the Awaken Retreat and are excited to serve our attendees. Under the towering oak trees and rolling hills in Camp Loch Leven, Al-Hujjah will hold three days of thought provoking activities, engaging lectures, and strengthening the bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood. The camp this year will be held from Friday, August 24- Sunday, August 26, 2018 and will cost each attendee $140.

Camp Loch Leven has hosted us in the past, and we are blessed to use their beautiful site once again, but with different speakers and enhanced activities. However, we will be holding the Reflection retreat later this year to further attendee’s spiritual growth and focus on self-reflection. We hope to see you there.
