Assalamu-alaikum (peace be upon you) fellow readers,

Alhamdulillah the weather outside today was beautiful, warm, and perfect for an outdoor activity. After being cooped up indoors for much of the past three months waiting for the snow to melt, our youth had a LOT of excess energy to put to good use. Our mentors walked our youth through a light stretching session before walking to the intramural fields for a fun game of Capture the Flag! The game went back-and-forth over the course of 60 minutes as our youth gleefully raced up and down the field chasing the flag (and one another). With 5 minutes left in the game, the score was 6-5. 5 minutes later, the game concluded in a 6-6 tie! Enjoy the pictures below from the awesome game:
