A group of young Muslims gathers at a camp in the mountains, undergoing training, learning survival skills, and practice exercises meant to make them better Muslims. Is it a secret terrorist training camp in the back woods? No, its one of the many Muslim Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops across North America, combining Scouting ideals with Islamic ones. For over 20 years, Muslim parents have been seeking a place at the Scouting table, eager to integrate Muslim youth into American society without compromising their religious ideals. (The Boy Scouts, on the other hand, like Muslim scouts because they aren't athiests and frown on homosexuality.) Now there are troops all over the place, with national Muslim scouting organizations helping to grow the number of Muslim troops. Muslim scouts are regularly visible at Jamborees, winning awards and offering BSA-certified Islamic badges with names like "In the Name of God" and "Bismillah". There's even an animated series chronicling the adventures of Muslim scouts. Scouting in the Muslim community has already produced some admirable Muslim role models, such as recent Harvard grad Zayed Yasin and Noorain Khan, who was recently honored by Senator Carl Levin on the floor of the Senate for her work with the Girl Scouts.
The Islamic Scouts of American is under the aegis of the Islamic Society of North America.

This camp is for brothers with ages ranging from 14 to 25 years. The cost of the camp is $100 and includes transportation (if you travel with us), food, activities, and accommodations. Attendees must also have the waiver form filled and signed. Many knowledgeable people will come and teach us. Many important lessons await.
The American Muslim map of the U.S. appears to have a sword thrust through it .
