Armenian Spirit


At AGBU Camp Nubar we embrace our Armenian heritage in all of our daily activities. Campers are required to attend an Armenian class every other day where instruction in language, history, culture, song and dance is taught by our energetic counselors. Campers are also encouraged to explore their unique heritage outside the classroom through camp wide events, cooking lessons, daily prayers and weekly church services.

Camp Nubar is proud to welcome visiting clergy throughout the summer to preside over our weekly church services.  Campers and staff participate together in the Divine Liturgy and benefit from the weekly reflection.

We find a way to make learning fun and campers and counselors alike leave camp with a greater attachment to the Armenian community.  A true sense of pride is developed as a camper becomes part of the Camp Nubar Family.

Camp Nubar is owned and operated by the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU), the world’s largest non-profit Armenian organization.  For over a century, AGBU has promoted the Armenian identity through its myriad humanitarian, educational and cultural programs including Camp Nubar, providing endless opportunities for Armenian youth to strengthen their ties with their heritage.
