OUR Mission

OUR APPROACH

The Camp Ararat Board of Directors and team of volunteers work to provide an environment where youth can experience Christian faith and Armenian heritage in a fun, safe and educational setting while developing skills in fellowship and service to their church and community.
PROUD ARMENIANS AND PROUD CANADIANS

ARMENIAN HERITAGE

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.
FIRST CHRISTIAN NATION ON EARTH

ARMENIAN FAITH

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.
ALONE WE ARE STRONG, TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER

GROUP ACTIVITIES

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.
FROM SEA TO SEA TO COAST TO COAST

WATER GAMES

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.

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.
