The St. Petro Mohyla Institute Board of Directors & Executive Director are thrilled to announce the esteemed Ukrainian Summer Immersion, Cultural & Language Camp will be offered again in 2017.

The Program will be a two week long camp consisting of an introduction to Ukrainian language with formal classroom time every weekday, as well as cultural learning activities.

The cultural and language components of the camp will contain instruction in Ukrainian language, local history, choral singing, dance, writing pysanky, and traditional culinary dishes. The program will also have a focus on physical activity, with day trips to surrounding lakes, swimming, hiking, canoeing and physical games.

The program will rely on bringing in esteemed members of the community to pass on their knowledge. A few examples include: guest speakers, who would discuss their success and how it relates to leadership; and guest instructors, who would demonstrate the art of pysanky, the cultural significance of traditional bread-making, and culinary instruction in making pyrohy.

At the conclusion of the camp, there will be a final performance put on by the camp participants. This will showcase Ukrainian dance and singing, with the potential for a bandura showcase as well.
The goal is to continue the tradition of the Ukrainian Immersion Camp, with the added benefit of a focus on leadership. Participants will develop life-long friendships and have an experience of a lifetime!
