In search of Udaleku Group Photos
Udaleku, or NABO’s Basque summer camp for kids, is arguably one of its most important and successful initiatives. The program, that began in the late 70s, has thrived and today hosts on average 100 children every year from Basque clubs all over the US to learn more about their Basque heritage, while making friends and getting to know different Basque communities at the same time. We are reaching out today to see if participants in programs in 1980, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, and 1995 would have a group picture of those camps. If we could track these years down, the NABO Udaleku photo archive would be complete. If you happen to have any of these, please scan them and email to NABO webmaster, Lisa Corcostegui, so she can add them to the website. Thank you in advance for your help!
