Tent Building/Team Building

There is no better way to work as a team than putting up a tent. Every Bedouin knows that you cannot put up a tent by yourself. Traditionally, when there is an event in the local community a large Bedouin tent is erected to host the masses that will arrive from near and far. The attendants of the event are invited to stay for dinner and will likely spend the night under the same tent. At Mazayen Rum Camp we have developed a program for our guests to exercise teamwork by tent building and all that requires. The team will work together to build a Bedouin goat-haired tent with traditional tools and supplies.

Bedouin Wedding Party

The most festive program yet: party like the natives! Bedouin Weddings differ in many ways from the average wedding. A wedding in the Bedouin community is a major event that the entire community participates in and attends. The larger the wedding, the more honored the family of the bride and groom. At a Bedouin wedding men and women will have 2 separate tents erected. Men are expected to wear their very best and maintain a certain air of nobility, honor, and pride in heritage and strength. Women are expected to demonstrate beauty, elegance, and their fashion sense while maintaining their integrity. Arab-style dancing and singing traditional songs and folklore are essential parts of the wedding's general merriment. A typical Bedouin wedding is 3 days but can last up to a week. 

At Mazayen Rum Camp, our Bedouin wedding program shows our guests an in-depth, personalized, interactive experience of how weddings are celebrated in Bedouin communities in Jordan. There will be an escort to explain all of the significant and traditional elements of the wedding. Guests in a Bedouin wedding are welcome to add to the festivities by giving a helping hand. Guests will have the chance to participate in the wedding process and preparations. Some of the activities typical to a Bedouin wedding are getting henna tattoos, decorating the tents, preparing bread/sweets, cooking Jordan's signature dish Mansef, Bedouin dancing, singing, and more. Attending a Bedouin wedding is a privileged experience.

Bedouin Tracking

One of many skills that the Bedouin have is tracking. In a desert environment, tracking is an imperative skill necessary to traverse the desert, find sustenance, recognize threats, and recover lost members of a herd. The desert though majestic and beautiful can be an unforgiving entity, leaving her captives adrift and famished. Being able to track and confidently know your surroundings may save your life. In this program, guests will have an interactive experience with a local Bedouin guide on how to track animals and how to get acclimated to the terrain the Bedouin way; learning the challenges and benefits of dwelling in the desert. It is a unique experience were you can have insight on nomadic desert life. After a tutorial on Bedouin tracking, you may find yourself helping a Bedouin find his lost camels!
