What is mosaic?

Camp Mosaic aims to unite Ismaili youth aged 8-13 years old across the UK and Europe together virtually, encouraging a sense of belonging to the Ismaili community whilst helping foster lifelong friendships and fun!

Camp Mosaic is a unique programme which pilotted in the summer of 2020. It was designed to provide an opportunity for young people to connect in a year during which physical summer camps were all cancelled. It is a special collaboration between the Ismaili Tariqah and Religious Education Board (ITREB), Education Board (EB)  and the Aga Khan Youth and Sports Board (AKYSB) which aims to enable participants to adapt to our changing world, and at the same time has all the fun bonding games and activities you would expect from a summer camp!

Due to popular demand and a hugely successful first year, Camp Mosaic will be returning in 2021 and promises to be full of fun, laughter and friendship – it’s not one to miss!
