This chapter discusses the results of a study on two organizations: Muslim Youth Camp (MYC) and American Muslims Intent on Learning and Activism (AMILA). The MYC aims to bring Muslim families and individuals of diverse backgrounds together for a fun-filled week of Islamic living, learning, and inspirational experiences in nature. AMILA describes itself as “committed to spiritual enrichment, intellectual freedom, and community service.” Although the MYC and AMILA have very different structures, they have three common goals: 1) the need for a nonjudgmental environment in which to explore themselves and different ideas; 2) an environment that reflects an American Muslim culture; and 3) a need to contribute to the community in meaningful ways.
