Let’s try matching the unmatchable: an English-learning profile children’s camp and a camping session, dedicated utterly to Ukrainian books and literature.
That’s right, we’ve invited an entire constellation of personalities, who dedicated their entire life to bookwriting. Not just regular authors, but authors of paradigmatic books you may have read in schools or kindergartens. Present-day masters of storytelling will come to the resort to run workshops and readings, share their precious experience and perhaps even persuade some of you, to ponder your own career as a writer.
However, this won’t be by any means some sort of a boring textbook schooltime routine. No-no-no! Your each day here will be highly-saturated with events and have quite a tight schedule: here you stand chatting with our English-speaking volunteers, but time runs short and you’re leaving for a mountain hike in 10 minutes, followed by a scrabble marathon. Exciting, isn’t it?
Wasn’t it persuasive? Pack your luggage then and meet us on this thrilling midsummer camping session!
