Camp Kolomayka invites you for an extravagant experience of culture, diversity, and talent. Learn about diversity and inclusion in the workshop titled “Become your own SUPERHERO,” try your artistic abilities with motankas and dream catchers, show off
your talent at grand finale display of “Kolomayka Got Talent.”
The camp idea this year revolves around Celebrating 150 years of Canada. The theme is focused more towards famous Ukrainian Canadians and their contribution to the society as a whole. When it come to the joint event with YEY’s support, we will first host a
workshop that will incorporate discussions revolving around diversity and inclusion.
We will discuss the ideas of what makes a good role model in today’s society. By having an interactive presentation, we will “build” a model of a superhero describing many of his/her features and attributes and personality traits that kids will use as the etalon of
an individual to aspire to be. The presentation activity will be specifically divided into 2 parts for those who are 11 and younger and for those who are older in order to have quality discussion.
For the crafts portion of the evening, the children will have a choice in either making motanka dolls. Traditional stories and ethnic legends will be shared and children will specifically pick certain colors and symbols representing the Superhero attributes
chosen during the workshop discussion. Alternatively, participants will have a choice of making dream catchers, which are derived from native art traditions. Stories of creation and meaning will be shared.
Then we will break for talent show prep and dinner. We will have light dinner, pizza, salads, and snacks.
The finale of the evening will be talent show in the style of “KOLOMAYKA GOT TALENT’ mimicking the ideas behind multinational “…got talent” shows. The event will incorporate pseudo-judges with their “fun” commentary, an MC with the support
“behind the scenes,” and a plethora of talents displayed by the participants. At the end everyone will be awarded with certificate of participation, and top 3 talents will receive a prize. A short photo/video will be prepared by the end of the camp as a keepsake of the event.
