Indiana Summer School will be facilitated online, with some local activity options. It will take place the weekend of July 25th and 26th. Please save the dates! The Summer School will include:

  • Study of Race Amity Part II
  • Children’s Classes
  • A Home Visit Refresher class,
  • A Devotional Refresher Class, and more. 

There is no cost to attend the Summer School. Everyone is invited, and Baha’is are encouraged to invite people in their neighborhoods from diverse backgrounds to participate in a conversation on race amity and oneness. Updates will be posted on the Indiana Baha’i Summer School Facebook page and website. These websites will be updated when registration is open. 

If you are interested in contributing your time and talents during that weekend, please let the committee know. They are looking for:

  • Children’s class teachers,
  • Small group facilitators,
  • Performances for arts night, and
  • Zoom hosts.

Most of the sessions will take place online through the Zoom platform. If you haven’t used Zoom before, all you need is a smartphone or computer with an internet connection and sound. There is no cost for a basic zoom account.  

Here are a few video tutorials that may be helpful:

If you have further questions about Zoom, please contact someone in your community to assist you or contact the Summer School Committee.

Please direct any questions or suggestions about the Indiana Baha’i Summer School to Mike Gray, the INBSS Committee Secretary at or 847-420-8391.
