Meghry Achekian shares her experience with Youth Corps
By: Meghry Achekian
Going to Armenia this summer was one of the best choices I’ve ever made. Growing up, over the summers I would always go to AYF camp. Being a camper for about seven years and a counselor for one, I had memorized the daily schedule, and every day the whole camp would be divided into garmeer gabooyd and narunchakooyn to compete. For some of the things at our jampars we did the same thing, so I was reminiscing about AYF camp while these new kids were just learning about the color competition. Every day when we would line up, it was a favorite part of my day to go through the boys and girls lines and get them energized while yelling out “NARUN-CHA-KOOYN !!” The kids would get so excited and it would make me have the biggest smile on my face.
If you love kids, have been to AYF Camp, or never even been to Armenia, apply now! Deadline is March 31st! www.ayfyouthcorps.org/apply
