August 14th, 2018 - Exciting Beginnings!

Published: August 14, 2018

Today our campers adjusted to a typical day at Lesnoe Ozero. On the way to breakfast we recited poetry as we walked along the path to St. Petersburg, where we ate traditional Russian porridge. We then welcomed our day campers before starting our classes. Fittingly, our theme today was introductions! In addition to language classes, participants also had the opportunity to sign up for culture hours. Some of our options for culture hours included balalaika, cooking and, of course, Khokhloma, or Slavic folk painting. Our evening program was equally as fun as the other events in our day - sports! The football field was filled with laughter as some hula-hooped, others raced, and others played badminton. It was an exciting start to our week together!
