Campers have the opportunity to explore various aspects of Armenian heritage, both old and new, through fun crafts, games and hold discussions presented by their counsellors and mentors.
During the week of camp, under the auspices of the Diocesan Primate, our Priests guide us in the teachings of the Armenian Apostolic Church through carefully crafted faith building classes.
Campers have the opportunity to get to know the rest of the age groups by participating in larger mixed groups that have them playing games, and solving puzzles cooperatively.
Once campers swimming abilities are evaluated by trained lifeguards they have the opportunity to swim in lakes and pool, canoe, kayak, snorkel and paddle boat as well as enjoy water games.
Camp Ararat takes opportunity to familiarize campers with Armenian geography in the structuring of it’s groups. Groups are organized and named after three major mountains Pokr Masis for our 8-11 years olds, Medz Masis for our 11-12 year olds, and Arakadz being our 12-13 year olds, in addition to the Camp Ararat Challenge group appropriately called Artsakh with our very competitive 14-16 year olds. Finally, these age groups are then subdivided into sixteen major Armenian and Artsakh cities and provinces.
