Russian for elementary kids? No problem! With our friendly staff at the Russian Day Camp located on Turtle River Lake near Bemidji, Minn., villagers have such a great time they don’t notice how much they're learning. Funny-looking alphabet!? Learn to read it while singing songs, meeting new friends and exploring the Village. Get ready to have fun: with an opportunity to try писанки (Ukrainian egg decorating), волейбол(volleyball) or плавание(swimming). We can’t wait to say, “Добро пожаловать” (Welcome)!
