Current Donation Needs

Expand and Renew Facilities and Infrastructure

We’ve been hard at work on the largest infrastructure improvement project in Camp Haiastan’s history – the Expand & Renew Project.

The Expand & Renew Project will eventually include a new bathroom, shower, and washstand facility, as well as re-purposing of the original buildings. The first phase of this project was to install a new septic system in place of the current system that is original to the Camp.

The new system has been completed thanks to generous donations from numerous early supporters. The cost of the first phase was about $350,000.  The entire Expand & Renew Project is expected to cost in excess of $750,000.

We need your financial assistance, along with the entire Camp Haiastan community, to complete this project.

We are reaching out to our many key friends of Camp Haiastan to contribute $5,000 or $1,000 per year for five years to bring this project to fruition.  Each of these donors will be recognized as an Expand and Renew $5k Supporter.  While other donation levels, both large and small, are available, the Expand and Renew $5k Supporters will be prominently recognized as the driving force for this major undertaking.

More than 19,000 campers have passed through the Camp’s entrance and experienced the magic of Camp Haiastan throughout the past 64 years.  What better way to memorialize your support for Camp Haiastan than to donate to this urgently needed project so that future generations can share in the legacy of our beloved institution.

Please contact David Hamparian (508-520-1312) if you would like additional information about this project. If you would like to donate to this project, please click the link below.  Thank you for your consideration and continued support.
