This afternoon we welcomed to Lesnoe Ozero our courageous one-weekers and our Family Program participants. Everyone received their passport, made their way through customs, and then settled into their cozy cabins.
International Day is always a very exciting day for our villagers, and today was no exception. Our villagers participated in the Global Summit, World Cup, Iron Chef Competition, and Dragonfly Storytelling. All of the hard work our students had put into preparation paid off, and they were very successful in their different activities.
Today was bittersweet, as we had our final day of class but also got to celebrate our students many accomplishments at the concert and the banquet. Every cabin had prepared a presentation, ranging from film to skit to dance.
During class today, our students had the opportunity to discuss health and wellness. Everyone really enjoyed creating different skits to practice their new vocabulary words.
At our morning exercises today, our students encountered, for most of them, a new language. Today was Ukrainian Day! At all of our group gatherings, several of our counselors led us in learning Ukrainian phrases for our every day routine.
