2023 Northwest Sufi Kids’ Camp

Hello, old friends and new! Kids’ camp at NW Sufi Camp is open to all kids aged 3- 12. This year we will meet in a special grove of trees at Camp Cedar Ridge in Vernonia for a few days of crafts, dancing, singing, playing of instruments, journal-making, environmental activities and fun in the swimming pool, creek, and Slip ‘n Slide!

I’ve been a music educator my entire adult life, have watched my three adult children enjoy kids’ camp at Northwest Sufi Camp every year of their childhoods, and am looking forward to directing this year’s kids’ camp. I’ll be assisted by my daughter, Nina Matthews, who is currently director of an outdoor education camp in Pennsylvania, and Sema Kerry Barley, who teaches kindergarten and is great with crafts and art projects.

Parents, we will meet during the first evening of camp and complete permission forms BEFORE kids’ camp begins the next day. Please list on the back any predictable places and ways to find you, some of which you won’t know till you arrive (lodging, classes). If your children will be attending camp in someone else’s care, temporary guardian forms need to be filled out, signed by parents, and brought to camp. Any other information we should or might want to know (diet, allergies, personal fears or favorite activities) would be much appreciated!! Please bring sunscreen and a water bottle for each child.

If you have any questions or suggestions for crafts or activities, please contact me at: wzieve@gmail.com.

See you at camp!
