I Dream of Nometne

The Summer of 2020 is not what had hoped but all is not lost!  Our virtual program has been evolving since we realized that we would be unable to safely and responsibly offer you an overnight camp program.  Virtual Nometne will be the place where we will meet, through which our summer friendships can flourish, and through which we will all strive to keep Nometne alive, well and ready for us  when the pandemic subsides.

Please join us on Sunday, July 5 at 2 pm  for the Opening of Virtual Nometne, and at 8pm for the first “Svecīšu dievkalpojums” of the summer. This event, as well as all others can be accessed via the Latvian Lutheran Church of NY website: www.nydraudze.org. 

The online summer calendar (www.nydraudze.org/kalendars) will also post weekend events in advance, some of them live, with  tips on which events you may need to prep for.  Activities during the month of July will be predominantly in Latvian,  with the  “Heritage” camp August program in English, but many of the major Summer fundraising events will come to you in dual languages. We also invite you, the parents, and nometne alumni to offer  and record online activities that can be included in the camp calendar.  Please check the website for names and email addresses of individuals to contact for each event.
