St. Vartan Camp began its camp season in late June at the Ararat Center in upstate New York. Campers have been active in sports and swimming, as well as daily classes in religion, arts and crafts, culture and Armenian language. This week campers enrolled in “Session B” welcomed Diocesan Primate Archbishop Khajag Barsamian. Visiting the camp on Tuesday, July 12, Archbishop Barsamian spoke with campers about Pope Francis’s visit to Armenia this summer. He also joined the young people for lunch and observed afternoon classes.
Space is still available for “Session C” of St. Vartan Camp. Visit www.diocesansummercamps.org to learn more, and click here to view photo highlights from each session. https://stvartancamp2016.shutterfly.com/
