In response to widespread demand from parents in the Iranian American community, IAAB is pleased to announce Camp Ayandeh JAVAN, a middle school leadership camp for Iranian Americans.
As a sister camp to Camp Ayandeh, IAAB's widely successful flagship program for high school students now going into its 6th year, Camp Ayandeh JAVAN will expose middle school students to the fundamentals of leadership training and engage them in issues of cultural identity.
While using the framework of Camp Ayandeh's celebrated curriculum that expertly weaves fun and learning, JAVAN's curriculum is specifically geared towards middle school students to ensure a week filled with joy, deep learning, and skills building.
Camp Ayandeh JAVAN will be held in Northern Virginia from August 22nd to August 26th, 2011, from 8am-4pm, at Hemlock Overlook Regional Park (extended hours and transportation to the camp may be available upon request). The camp is open to all rising sixth graders through eighth graders. The cost of attendance is $400 and there are various merit-based scholarships available.
IAAB also seeks counselors for JAVAN. Eligible counselors are high school and university students with a demonstrated passion for leadership and mentorship. For more information on the applications, please click here.
We look forward to working with all the students of JAVAN in August!
