ARS Toronto Roubina Chapter – Summer Camp 2019
ARS Summer Camp (Jampar) had another successful summer this year. The camp ran from July 2 to August 23 at the Armenian Youth Centre, for children from kindergarten to grade 8.
This year the camp welcomed more than 220 campers for a duration of eight weeks. The daily camp program included: arts and crafts, baking, interactive and engaging Armenian and music classes, computer period, and outdoor/indoor interactive play and activities.
On Tuesdays, grades 1 to 8 had a splashin’ time while swimming outdoors. On Wednesdays, the camp hosted diverse in-house activities and in-house chess sessions and on Fridays, the camp embarked on exciting field trips. In addition to all of this fun, on numerous occasions, there were camp-wide games in the gymnasium to promote inclusion and foster a safe, welcoming community.
New this year, was the leadership and STEM program for grades 6 to 8. While the older campers developed their own leadership skills, they also fostered the younger campers’ self-esteem through play and team-building.
Campers and staff alike gained new relationships and unforgettable memories. All of this was made possible thanks to the dedication and support of the ARS Summer Camp Committee, the camp staff, the parents, and generous donors.
It is a huge honor to serve our Armenian Community and to prepare our leaders-in-the-making.
See you next summer!
