ARF Badanegan Seminar

The ARF Badanegan Organization of Western America held its Annual Winter Seminars during the weekends of February 3-5 and February 24-26.

Each year–the Badanegan Central Council of the ARF organizes two weekend sessions–during which Badanees from all over Southern California gather at AYF Camp in Big Pines–California. Session one of this year’s seminar had over 50 participants between the ages of 9 and 13. More than 120 badanees between the ages of 14 and 17 participated in second session of the seminars.

During the weekend seminars–participants were able to meet and interact with different badanees from various chapters–participate in workshops and educationals–take part in a talent show–as well as go on hikes–play games–compete in a quizbowl–discuss current events–and learn about Armenian history.

The ARF BCC would like to thank all badanees and advisors for participating in this year’s Seminars.
