Ethiopian Camp 2017
August 3-6

We are committed to keeping kids connected to their heritage so that they are well rounded individuals with a positive self image and a greater sense of community with their peers. In addition, we are committed to creating support groups in bringing together parents of Ethiopian children to share their great common goal of raising self-assured and well-adjusted Ethiopian-Americans. To that end, we organize and sponsor various cultural events, heritage camps, homeland visits.

Ethiopian Heritage Camp 2013!! Massanetta Springs Camp & Conference Center, Harrisonburg, VA 

We are pleased to announce the 2017 Heritage and Culture Camp, which will be held from August 3 to 6. This charming Camp and Conference center is situated in the heart of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, just a short two-hours drive from Washington DC or Baltimore, MD.

In this, our eighth year in organizing this family-oriented, 3 nights/4 night, educational getaway we continue to provide an authentic cultural experience, that is bound to be the highlight of your Summer vacation. The Heritage and Culture Camp is the ONLY Ethiopian camp dedicated to bringing together ALL families who are raising Ethiopian-American children. We are proud that our participants and families come in all "shapes and sizes". Many families come with children spanning infancy through college-age. Others are prospective parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. We also enjoy seeing the grandparents joining their families at camp, not only do they add to the family atmosphere, but having them is also a special honor in our culture.

This four day long camp will have lots of fun activities, while offering educational and self-improvement opportunities for everybody. Families are encouraged to take advantage of all the activities available, which are all age-appropriate and will appeal to parents, as well as youngsters. In addition to language and cultural awareness classes, we will also have seminars and conferences designed to help parents in raising children in a multicultural environment.

There will also be programs for the entire family - such as singing, dancing (Eskista), camp fire, a special movie, ever-growing Gebeya (market), Ethiopian coffee ceremony under a beautiful outdoor setting, and group meals. As always, we built-in free time for exploring great outdoor activities, such as canoe rides, volleyball, swimming, etc., or just relaxing with family and friends.

Once again, we will have the ever popular Ethiopian banquet and cultural dance, to be held on Saturday, featuring professional Ethiopian dancers and musicians.

For those planning to attend, we truly appreciate your wisdom in making such an important commitment.

Join us - To be connected and to be educated
We hope to see you in August!
