CAMPERS


Campers ages 8-14 years of age are recognized as our Pokr Masis, Medz Masis and Arakadz groups. These groups follow structured morning and afternoon programs filled with learning, physical activity and creativity in a fun and active way.



SENIOR CAMPER PROGRAM


Senior Camper Program was coordinated by a gifted team in order to meet the interests of our oldest campers 14-16 years of age. Throughout the week the campers used their co-operative skills to continually solve various challenges that were skill testing, problem solving with many of the challenges incorporating an Armenian component.



THE CIT PROGRAM


The CIT program trains and prepares 16 to 18 year-old Canadian Armenian young adults for leadership. It is a two-year program that focuses on transition. The primary objective is to retain our senior campers within the Armenian Camp Family and allow them the transition from camper to CIT and potentially Camp Counsellor.  Our Core Values are Compassion and Love, Friendship and Acceptance, Trust & Honesty, Encouragement and Service, and Spiritual Growth and Prayer.
