Assalamu-alaikum (peace be upon you),

Quick, name the youngest person to successfully climb Mount Everest?

Answer: 13-year-old Jordan Romero!

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), Mount Everest was not located at Camp Tecumseh for our youth to attempt to break the record. However, we did enjoy learning the proper technique to climb up a wall (Spider-Man style!) and race one another to find who could climb the wall from bottom to top the most quickly.This year’s winner from the brothers side – a whopping 46 seconds by Ali K!

We have arrived at our Mount Everest – the giant climbing walls!

A few guys take a moment to re-charge their batteries with items from their snack bags – yummy, Sun Chips for a sunny day!

Salah lends Mohamed a helping hand getting on his safety equipment. Remember, safety trumps fun every single time.

Mohamed reaches the top of the wall ma shaa Allah!

“That was so hard!”

Shujath expertly scales the wall one handhold at a time. Great work buddy!

Mustafa receives a lift from Ihsan.

Omar looks to the left for a foothold – “why does this always happen to me when I get close to the top!?!”

Omar meet foothold; foothold meet Omar – “wait, why is my left foot suspended in mid-air? HELP!!!”

Samir two feet from the top – “just…one…more…step.”

Our parent rep proving even adults can have fun climbing walls.

Wishing you peace mom and dad!
