Expand and Renew Facilities and Infrastructure

We’ve been hard at work on the largest infrastructure improvement project in Camp Haiastan’s history – the Expand & Renew initiative.

The Expand & Renew initiative has encompassed the building of a new bathroom, shower, and washstand facility, new water well, new camp-wide septic system, a new lower office, and a new directors quarters. This year, the original bathroom and shower facilities will be re-purposed.


The first phase of this project was to install a new septic system in place of the current system that is original to the Camp.

The new system was completed in 2015 thanks to generous donations from numerous early supporters. The cost of the first phase was about $350,000. 

The second phase of this project was to install a new well in 2016 which cost $100,000.


In 2017 we completed the building of the new bathroom, shower, and washstand facility which cost $350,000. In 2018, we completed the building of the new lower office and new directors quarters in 2018 which cost over $100,000 and $250,000 respectively.​

We need your financial assistance, along with the entire Camp Haiastan community, to complete rebuilding and expanding Camp Haiastan.

We are reaching out to our many key friends of Camp Haiastan to contribute $5,000 or $1,000 per year for five years to bring this project to fruition.  Each of these donors will be recognized as an Expand and Renew $5k Supporter.  

More than 19,000 campers have passed through the Camp’s entrance and experienced the magic of Camp Haiastan throughout the past 69 years.  What better way to memorialize your support for Camp Haiastan than to donate to this massive undertaking so that future generations can share in the legacy of our beloved institution.


Please contact David Hamparian (508-520-1312) if you would like additional information about this project. If you would like to donate to this project, please click the link below.  Thank you for your consideration and continued support.
