Formed for children ages 5 to 12, the day camp expands on the Conservatory’s philosophy of impressing younger generations with consciousness of their identity through an Armenian-centric curriculum, while allowing them to find free expression […]Learn More
At its core, the Taguhi Summer Day Camp was designed to be the manifestation of the Lark Conservatory’s aspiration to foster a sense of the Armenian Identity within younger generations. In our Poetry and Singing classes, we teach our children about our culture and our past. In our Hand Crafts and Painting classes we present our children our unique art, scenery and timeless traditions. In our Drama class, our stories, and in our Dance class, our culture. We impart as much of the Armenian Tradition as we can into the students, while also including an immense amount of fun into our experience.
In 2006, the Lark Conservatory welcomed its first group of students to the Taguhi Summer Day Camp. Our initial program was so successful that it grew from a 2 week program of 40 students in its first year all the way to a 9 week program and nearly 200 students in its later years–even capturing the interest of non-Armenian Children who would sign-up to participate.
Our program was so successful that years later, as a testament to the values we worked tirelessly to instill, and all the fun memories and experiences, many of our former students wished to give back to the community, just as those who taught them did. They would later go on to become our first group of volunteer camp counselors–and nearly 10 years later many of them are still involved in preparing and running the program today as teachers, counselors, camp directors and volunteers to the next generation of Armenian Children.
