Russian for elementary kids? No problem! With our friendly staff at the Russian Day Camp located on Turtle River Lake near Bemidji, Minn., you’ll be having such a great time you won’t notice how much you’re learning. Funny looking alphabet!? You’ll learn to read it while you’re singing songs, meeting new friends and exploring the village. All you have to do is get ready to have fun: You might try писанки (Ukrainian egg decorating) or волейбол(volleyball) or плавание (swimming). We can’t wait to say, “Добро пожаловать” (Welcome) when you come to visit us!
