CAMP SILAH, of Project Untangled, is a summer camp for the youth, ages 8-18, of the Portland metropolitan area. It was launched in the summer of 2018 as a 3 day test run. It was such a huge success that we have decided to keep it going every summer. This camp blended refugee kids with non-refugee kids in a beautiful harmonious way and made the refugee kids feel like they belong to the Portland community. There were 100 children who attended this year, a third of them were refugees.
We are very thankful to Nura Elmagbari, PRSG Director of the Board, and Dr. Omar Reda, Director of Project Untangled, who made this camp a big success, and to the project managers of this camp. We extend our thanks to the partner organizations and everyone who made this camp such a wonderful experience.
