Our Semester Structure

We’re rolling out a monthly cadence in order to ensure that we remain connected to the mosque as well as deliver the best curriculum possible. Every month will have:


One Meeting at a Mosque

Arkanum will meet at the mosque once a month for either a regular session or a Qiyam night/Sleepover. Meetings will happen either at the Everett Mosque (AMC) or the Sharon Mosque (ICNE Sharon). Please check the schedule below for session details.


One Meeting at the Boyscouts Camp in Milton

Once per month Arkanum will spend a session at the Scouts facility in Milton where we do a range of activities from archery, rock climbing, swimming, sports, team building and much more.


One retreat

We will have an overnight retreat every month. Each retreat is meant to be an equivalent for two regular sessions. The cost for two Retreats (Transportation & Accommodation) is included in the semester fees. Food or any extra activities will be charged separately.

Arkanum team is working with a number of local venues to host the program long term. If any venue confirms with us we will adjust the semester program accordingly (mainly eliminating the 1 night retreats and having sessions locally instead). Parents will have a week to decide if the new location and timing work for them or not. If they decide to withdraw, we will prorate the payment and refund the difference.

Semester Flow

1Signing Up

Registration opens almost two weeks before the first session, during this time parents are expected to sign up and pay the session fee’s.

2Welcome Day

The first session is a welcome day where mentees and mentors are introduced to one another.

3Sessions (9-12 sessions per semester)

This semester, due to the pandemic circumstances, all session locations and timings are listed below in the schedule. If there are any changes, each session time and location will be communicated with all members and families via email at least 3 days prior to the session [For example, if there are any changes, we will notify you by Wednesday for a Saturday session].

4Arkanum Retreats

Arkanum retreats are optional for mentees and require a small separate fee but it’s definitely worth the cost!

5Arkanum Outings

One of our most popular activities are our small outings that take place during our session time, such as qiyaams and field trips.

6International Trips

Don’t miss out on our international trips, where we experience once in a lifetime adventures!
