Udaleku, Upcoming Elko/NABO Festivities, Gure Esku Dago

Udaleku 2013 - Bakersfield
Udaleku 2013Udaleku is one of the most important and most successful NABO initiatives. The program has been running as long as NABO has been an organization and allows kids from the ages of 10-15 to spend two weeks immersed in the Basque culture. This year’s edition, hosted by the Kern County Basque club in Bakersfield, began on Sunday and will conclude on June 28th.

During this time kids will be introduced to Basque language, dance, sports, culture, cuisine, mus, and txistu while getting to know other kids, from not only other Basque clubs, but often from the Basque Country as well. This year Bakersfield is hosting just over 100 kids for the two weeks. Campers are housed with local families allowing them to get to know how people live in different communities as well. Good luck to all, and a huge thank you to Bakersfield for stepping up and hosting this year’s camp!
