Ararat Center News
Find out what we've been up to since we purchased this magnificent facility in 2004.


       St. Vartan Camp was organized in 1979 as a project of the ACYOA Seniors. In 1983, the ACYOA was unable to maintain the camp project, and it transferred under the direct auspices of the Diocese. During the progression of St. Vartan Camp entering its 25th year, the Diocesan Assembly voted to purchase its own youth and conference center called the Ararat Center.

      The Ararat Center and St. Vartan Camp are working in conjunction to develop an Alumni program. We need your help! We ask that you send us your name, the year’s you attended St. Vartan Camp, and pictures from camp (listing names) for a photo and memory album. Please send your information to so we can add your name to the St.Vartan Camp family tree.  Join the St. Vartan Camp alumni family and help create a bridge from past to present. 
       Remember, you can also purchase a brick with your name and the year you attended camp. It will be added to the permanent walkway at the Ararat Center so you may always take a stroll through the past.
