Summer is Coming...and so is the Diocesan Camps Season
The Diocesan Department of Youth and Young Adult Ministries is looking ahead towards the summer, with registration under way for both Hye Camp and St. Vartan Camp.
The St. Vartan Camp season begins in late June. The early bird discount for campers ends April 1, so register soon! At this time, Session B is at capacity with a wait list, but there are still spots open for the week of B2. Session A and Session C still have room. The CIT and Staff application deadline has been extended to March 30. St. Vartan Camp is in need of male staff for all three sessions, so young adults who would be a fit for the St. Vartan Camp family are encouraged to apply!
The Hye Camp season begins a little later in the summer, so the early bird discount is available through June 1. All CIT and Staff applications are due by June 1, and the final day for camper registration is July 1.
Our Diocese will be granting scholarships to undergraduate, college-age youth for the academic year 2018-2019. These scholarships are earmarked for Armenian American students attending accredited 4-year undergraduate university programs. Preference will be given to those who are active in the life of the Armenian churches of the Eastern Diocese. Altar servers, Sunday or Armenian school teachers, active ACYOA members, choir members, etc. . The scholarship program is open to U.S. Citizens only.
The application and reference forms must be submitted electronically.
