Udaleku 2013: Bakersfield, California
Every year since the early 1970’s N.A.B.O., in conjunction with one of the Basque clubs, has organized Udaleku – a two-week Basque Culture Summer Camp. Participants have an opportunity to learn more about their Basque heritage while having fun and making new friends.
UDALEKU 2012 will take place in Bakersfield, CA this year from June 16-28. The cost is $350 per student and applications will be available online at nabasque.org starting March 1st at 6 PM (PST).
PLEASE NOTE there are only 45 spots available to students outside the Bakersfield area as they do not have lodging for more than that. So if you are interested in going make sure you follow the link and fill out the online application. Payment is due when you submit your application.
This is a GREAT opporunity to learn more about our heritage through Dance, Games, Music, Language, and Cooking!

Hello again, Lontzo. Goisalde Jausoro, from the Mountain Home Euskal Etxea in Idaho, tells me that anyone can participate in Udaleku as long as a parent or they are a member of a NABO club.
