Project Background

For most children, summer camp is a time to celebrate the end of school, have adventures and make new friends. It’s a magical and memorable experience.


For children who have experienced great hardships — like the loss of a parent during war — camp holds even more significance. It is therapeutic and healing. It distracts the mind and decompresses the soul.


Every year, Fund for Armenian Relief (FAR) sponsors a beautiful two-week camp experience for just over 150 kids from its “Children of Armenia Sponsorship Program” (CASP). The participants come from a variety of difficult backgrounds. Most are socioeconomically disadvantaged. Some are the children of Syrian-Armenian refugees and others, of soldiers who were killed in the 2020 war with Azerbaijan.


During the camp, children form life-long friendships. They learn and develop new skills, sight-see, and participate in a full range of fun and exciting activities. They are physically active and eat regular and balanced meals.


Due to limited financial resources, FAR cannot send all of the children from CASP to camp. We at Ayo! would like to raise enough money to sponsor at least 75 more children who lost their fathers in the 2020 war. It’s only about $200 per child.


The more we raise, the more children can attend camp. There are 346 more children who lost their fathers on the list; all of them are waiting for the opportunity! Are you excited to give them an experience of a lifetime? We are! Let the countdown to camp begin!
