PGMA Girl Scout Troop 3480 is holding an overnight Ramadan Lock-In Friday, July 27 – Saturday, July 28. All girl scouts are welcome however Daisy’s MUST be accompanied by a parent or approved guardian. Girls should arrive at PGMA 30 minutes prior to maghrib on Friday, July 27 and must be picked up from the masjid no later than 7:30 AM Saturday, July 28.
This is NOT a slumber party. The purpose of the Ramadan Lock-In is for the girls to work on completing the Ramadan Patch. They will perform community service assisting with the iftar and prayer preparations for the evening. They will also learn about the purpose, benefits and details of Ramadan. Some of the activities that the Girl Scouts will participate in include: setting up for iftar, serving food, cleaning up after iftar, praying taraweeh, Ramadan arts and crafts, and learning more about Ramadan. Girls will review relevant ayat from Quran and Hadith, and engage in thought provoking discussions. The activities will be supervised and balanced between worship, service, and fun. All girls who attend the Ramadan Lock-In and participate in the activities will be awarded the Ramadan Patch in the fall.
