Vyshyvankas, Ukrainian songs and national dishes – “Artek-Bukovel” held a day of patriotism
Sports and recreation camp “Artek-Bukovel” has already finished 2 shifts in June. Thanks to Ihor Palytsia Foundation “Only together” 753 students visited Carpathians this year, about 250 children will be able to have a holiday in Bukovel in autumn. Those children are young elite of Volyn Oblast, winners of numerous competitions and contests, smart boys and girls from all the areas that were able to express themselves in education, arts, sports and research directions. And still there is one special feature, which brings together young people from Volyn – love of their native land.
The first shift of a summer camp planned a special day of Ukrainian heritage and patriotism. Dress code – traditional Ukrainian embroidered shirts (embroidery), songs – Ukrainian and even meals in the dining room were traditional.
All 28 units of camp “Artek-Bukovel” prepared a joint flash mob – painted and embroidered rushnyk. By imitating Ukrainian embroidery, children tried to present their squad, team, invest their part to the common cause.
Each of these works became a part of one Artek patriotic rushnyk. Though patriotic day ended but love of Volyn people to their land had no bottom. After all, today’s students are the future and an investment of its land, and Ihor Palytsia`s Foundation “Only together” cares about it.
