July 16, 2013 – Day 2 of Camp Vanadzor
Our second day of camp continued with high spirits and enthusiasm. You can see the excitement of the children each morning as we prepare for another day of activities. This excitement has spread throughout the city of Vanadzor; we notice it as we walk through the town with people thanking us for what we are doing in the city. We had an out-pour of parents bringing their children to camp today after hearing how well the camp went on Day 1. As of yesterday we had a total of 180 campers registered for Camp Vanadzor, which surpassed our budgeted 150. As of today we reached a registered 213 campers – the most since our camp launched in 2011. We just could not turn down the parents that requested us to take in their children for the camp. While we are more than glad to meet more children, we have surpassed our budget and are using up our additional funds to feed the children at lunch and make sure we have enough materials for activities. This will only take us so far…
If you are able to, please consider making a donation to us at www.ardziv.org/ayfcan/donate. Large or small, we will be deeply grateful as this money will go towards helping shape these children’s future.
We look forward to keeping all of our supporters updated. Share our journey with whoever else may be interested. Follow us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/AYFCanadaYouthCorps
