Hey, Camp Folks!
The recommended camp outfitter for more than 270 summer camps, we here at Everything Summer Camp are proud to work with every single one of them! And we love singing the praises of the many camps with whom we’ve developed a working relationship too. That’s why today I’m shining our camp spotlight on the great AYF Camp Haiastan summer camp in Franklin, Massachusetts.
Situated among the 100 acres of East Coast, Camp Haiastan offers an amazing view of the Uncas Pond as well as the surrounding beauty of Mother Nature. The first Armenian camp in America, Haiastan was founded 71 years ago back in 1951 though the seeds for it were first planted in 1939 when the Armenian Youth Federation elected their new Central Executive and it was decided to establish a youth camp.
When they found their land, everyone involved was convinced that this was a great service to the Armenian youth in America, as well as the people of Franklin, MA. With the mission set to provide a healthy and safe summer camp experience for the Armenian-American youth, the dream of Camp Haiastan finally became a reality in 1951.
Enjoy fun times there engaging in great activities such as Swimming, Athletics, Hiking, Ropes Course, and Boating. They also hold educational programs that teach about Armenian cultural which creates a bond between your camper and your Armenian heritage—an opportunity they’re not likely to find elsewhere. Haiastan. They even offer a class to help campers start learning the Armenian language.
At Camp Haiastan, your camper will have the extraordinary thrills of sleeping in a cabin, building a fire, competing in a team, or learning an Armenian dance.
