The Time of Your Life

Welcome to Camp Haiastan, the first Armenian camp in America! Founded in 1951, our residential summer camp prides itself on building off of its rich foundation and continuing to provide an unforgettable experience every year for its campers and staff. Located in Franklin, Massachusetts, Camp Haiastan overlooks picturesque Uncas Pond and sits on over 100 acres of pristine woodland. We offer countless outdoor activities including swimming, athletics, hiking, ropes course and boating combined with Armenian cultural and education programs that bond our campers with our heritage. Camp Haiastan is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The friendships formed at Camp Haiastan promise to last a lifetime!


105 years after the Armenian Genocide, we are still thriving. Camp Haiastan has served as a place for our youth to come together and celebrate their culture, learn about their history, and discover their roots. Generation after generation, Camp Haiastan continues to ignite a flame within the diaspora that will never be extinguished.


Camp Haiastan offers campers a unique summer camp experience for all ages. Camp is divided into multiple sessions based on age and preference for length of stay. Choose the session that best suits your camper!


We’ve been hard at work on the largest infrastructure improvement project in Camp Haiastan’s history – the Expand & Renew initiative. Visit our Donate page to find out how you can contribute to the betterment of Camp Haiastan!
