Щодня, бабки-кухарки приготовляють домашню їжу – ніхто не залишається голодним! Крім звичайних табірних забав як спорт, ми також вчитимемо дітей української мови, історій, культури, пісень, музику, народних танців, православної віри, і фольклору. Загалом, цього року ми очікуємо приблизно 30 дітей – максимум що може проживати на території табору.

Camp "Kolomayka" was founded some eight years ago. It usually starts on the last week of July, and lasts two weeks. The children, ages 6-15, live in cabins located on the campground. Every day, the babka-cooks prepare three homemade meals – nobody ever goes hungry! Apart from the regular summertime camp activities such as sports and crafts, we teach the kids about their Ukrainian Heritage, including Ukrainian language, history, culture, music, song, folk dance, traditions, and of course about their Orthodox Faith. Altogether, this year we are expecting around 30 kids – the most we could host at any given time.

The role of the convention has changed from developing identity to maintaining identity. This convention will provide a forum for open discussion and interaction among all members present.
