“Artek Island Rendezvous”
June 10 – 18
Dive into summer with Artek “Lake” camp!
You may ask why are we so fond of mountain hiking. The answer is simple - it provides precious experiences of discovery and novelty. Living in a tent, falling asleep among the whispering trees, waking up to the melodic bird singing, breathing in the odorous scent of meadow flowers, singing with guitars near a cheerful fire, finding new friends, discovering our hidden potential and living in the lap of Nature. That is the very essence of “Lake” camp – breaking away from dusty and overcrowded city routine.
Just imagine how relaxing your summer vacation may be! We gladly accept everyone who’s willing to step into Nature’s domain and learn the very basics of hiking and trekking. Welcome to the legendary camp, where the sky is full of stars and the afternoon air is radiant with guitar chords!
June 19 – 27
Feel the soul of the Carpathian forest! It seems that we reside a bit closer to the sky here at Lake camp: you might feel like reaching and touching those fluffy clouds. You’ll easily erase the memories of boring city routine, the green landscapes will quickly replace those familiar concrete jungle. Right here we provide the best summer holiday experience for kids, and we have all necessary means: the green forest is few steps away, a team of professionals is willing to do their best for a magnificent camping session, saturated with events. Here, kids simply don’t have spare time to waste on the social media.

“The First Expedition”
June 28 – July 6
Before we embark, let’s deal with the definition. As Wikipedia puts it, the “expedition” term stands for “an exploration, journey, or voyage undertaken by a group of people especially for discovery and scientific research”.
Well, now the prime goal of our expedition will be discovering our hidden potential, exploring the mysterious Carpathian paths, a voyage into the domain of positive emotions and researching friendship.
Dwelling in comfortable tents in the middle of the mountains, 5-course meals, a highly-saturated event schedule – Artek “Lake” camp is ready for you!
“Follow the Azimuth”
July 7 – 15
Is it possible to combine camping in a legendary place and having a weekend in the mountains?
Easy as pie! Artek-Bukovel’s “Lake” camp has it all. However, don’t forget to follow the azimuth of good mood and expect the best from your vacation. The compass arrow will lead you to the right place, specifically – to us!
Why “Lake” camp you might ask? You’ll be given a basic course of hiking and trekking, then have a mountain retreat, set the tent by yourself, hold an art performance with your peers, take part in a sporting competition and have fun riding a bike or a catamaran. Also, don’t forget about those atmospheric evenings with fireside gatherings and discos.
Follow the azimuth of positivity!
