Closing - One Week program and Family Camp

Published: August 20, 2016

This morning, we said goodbye to our one-week villagers and family camp! We had such a great week celebrating Maslenitsa  and Cheburashka's birthday and participating in a variety of crafts, cultural activities, dance, and song. At our closing program at 10:00, each class received awards and showed the audience a clip of a video or project that they had accomplished in their two weeks at Lesnoe Ozero. All of the beautiful crafts villagers had made were on display as well. Svetlana, one of our campers worked with Dasha in chas kulturi (culture hours) to learn a samba routine, which she performed at our closing program. Watch her dance below.

After the closing program, families and villagers had time to exchange final farewells as well as peruse our magazin (camp store).

We had such a great summer with all of your campers. If you'd like to experience Lesnoe Ozero in a different season, check out our winter family weekend, taking place President's Day weekend, February 17-20. Registration for that will be opening soon. And of course, we can't wait to see all of you back next year! До встречи!
