Why should I participate in summer school?

Here we have compiled excerpts from the Bahá'í scriptures, about the importance of participating in summer- and winter schools

"The basic purpose of all Bahá'í (summer) schools, whether in the East or West, is to give the believers the opportunity to fully acquaint themselves not only through study, but through fully and actively cooperate in various Bahá' í activities with the administration's foundation and in this way make itself able to be effective and appropriate proponents of the course ... .. "

Summer Schools

If they attends their summer school—and everyone without exception is urged to take advantage of attending it—let them consider such an occasion as a welcome and precious opportunity so to enrich, through lectures, study, and discussion, their knowledge of the fundamentals of their Faith as to be able to transmit, with greater confidence and effectiveness, the Message that has been entrusted to their care.

Summer and Winter Schools

The Guardian once described the institution of the Summer School in a letter written on his behalf, as “a vital and inseparable part of any teaching campaign.” In April 1972 the House of Justice issued a compilation on the importance of Bahá’í Summer Schools, and it commends this to every National Spiritual Assembly for study. In only a few countries has it been possible or timely to acquire properties to house Summer and Winter Schools; in most they are still held in rented premises, and the House of Justice stresses the importance of holding them at as low a cost as possible in a place that is easily accessible to the friends, so that large numbers of believers and inquirers can attend. It is hoped that this activity will become at least an annual feature of the Bahá’í community life in every land.
