Camper Overview

Attending camp as a camper at Hye Camp is an experience that stays with you for a lifetime. This experience is full of learning about our Armenian culture and faith, making friendships that will last a lifetime, and experiencing God’s creation in a natural setting. Check the Calendar page for this year's Hye Camp dates.

Campers will be placed in a cabin with 10-12 campers around the same age. Each cabin will have one or two counselors assigned to it. Our trained volunteer counselors create a feeling of family in their cabin, becoming the "parents" of their cabin for the week. The counselors spend the day with them (eat meals together, attend classes and activities together, etc.), help their campers develop cabin skits for campfire, and are with the campers all day and night. They also encourage campers to participate in the talent show and sport tournaments at the end of the week.

Campers enjoy cultural and religious classes each morning and spend the afternoon playing sports or working on arts & crafts projects. For a more in-depth look at what a week at Hye Camp is like, please visit the camper schedule page.
